Rent Rhino – Get Your Security Deposit Back!

A common issue among renters and landlords is the dispute over the security deposit. Rent Rhino is a new application that allows you to keep a detailed account of any problems associated with the apartment you are renting. Rent Rhino helps to meticulously evaluate every safety and maintenance aspect of the apartment. The application takes you through detailed checklists for damage, such as plumbing problems, properly functioning locks, or paint that has been chipped, stained, scratched, or marred in any way. If any aspect of the apartment is not in pristine condition, Rent Rhino allows you to document the specific problem, and even take and upload a picture. You also can make note of your lease provisions and set reminders for important dates, like when you need to give notice to the landlord that you are moving out of the apartment. All information is saved through cloud storage, easing the moving in and moving out process and ensuring that you are protected from being charged for pre-existing damage.
