Utah Required Landlord Disclosures
Learn about the disclosures that landlords in Utah must provide tenants, usually in the lease or rental agreement.
Move-in checklists are required. Utah Code. Ann. § 57-22-4
Landlords must give prospective renters a written inventory of the condition of the residential rental unit, excluding ordinary wear and tear; give the renter a form to document the condition of the residential rental and allow the resident a reasonable time after the renter's occupancy of the unit to complete and return the form; or provide the prospective renter an opportunity to conduct a walkthrough inspection of the rental. (Utah Code. Ann. § 57-22-4)
By custom in Utah landlords must disclose any nonrefundable fees to tenants. Specifically, if there is a written agreement and if any part of the deposit is nonrefundable, it must be so stated in writing to the renter at the time the deposit is taken. Check your local ordinance for any city or county disclosure requirements. To find yours, check your city or county website (many are listed on State and Local Government on the Net), or contact the office of your mayor, city manager, or county administrator. Finally, see the Required Landlord Disclosures article for details on federally-required landlord disclosures and other information on disclosures about the rental property.
