Prepare for Move In

Landlord/Tenant Responsibilities

When preparing to move in, please consider the following:

Knowing your rights and responsibilities as a tenant is important. The US Department of Housing has some helpful information regarding South Carolina tenant rights, laws, and protections.

  • Move In
    • Inspect your apartment/home at move-in
    • Speak to the landlord or property manager about any concerns
    • Document any damage using photographs
    • Document, in writing, how repairs will be made
    • Maintain a copy of your lease
  • Legal help

    Clemson may be able to offer you legal assistance as a student. For more information, please visit the Clemson Legal Assistance Page.
