Move-in condition is always in the eye of the beholder.

Most management companies will ask the old tenant to report any and all problems they may have with the apartment prior to their moving date. Given the time and space involved, most agencies wait until after the tenant leaves to redo the apartment (has to do with access and vacancy) before assigning a new tenant to the apartment.
Some agencies charge tenants fees (security deposit) for broken items found in the apartment that is not within their normal wear and tear guidelines. Be aware of what is damaged and broken when you move-in, and document these things because if they don't fix it they may charge you those same fees and carry on that damage item to the next tenant.
Example: Damaged counter top... Walls, fridge.

Good luck.

: Is the the management company obligated to finish repairs/painting etc of an apartment prior to a new tenant moving in otr can it legally wait until the old tenant is out and the new one is in to do the painting etc?
