What exactly does this mean? It means that when you sign the lease you are agreeing to take the property the way you have seen it. In other words, you have inspected the property and are agreeing that everything is fine. You are agreeing that the paint is fine, the carpet is fine, the flooring is fine, the fixtures are fine, and most of all you are happy with the cleanliness of the property.
