Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent and your security deposit both must be paid at the lease signing. If you have any questions about this, please confirm the amounts with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Your move-in will be set at the lease signing. You'll need to fill out the inspection form upon moving into the property.

Utilities

Please note, all utilities for your property must be placed in your name. Please take care of this as quickly as possible after taking the keys, in order to avoid any temporary outages or administrative fees associated with restoring access.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

If you plan to leave your property, please submit your official notice.

Property Condition

You are responsible for returning your property to rent-ready condition. This includes addressing the following elements:

  • Rental Cleaning: Your unit must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Please pay special attention to the kitchens and bathrooms, wiping countertops, cabinets, and appliances. You also need to vacuum and shampoo carpeted areas, wash windows, and remove all refuse from the property. Any garbage left behind may result in an additional fee.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: You must also return your outdoor living space to its original condition. Please ensure you've addressed all landscaping responsibilities, including mowing the lawn, weeding flowerbeds, and replacing old lightbulbs.
  • Repairs: Please be sure to address any damage that has occurred during your stay. This includes patching holes left from nails and screws, replacing lightbulbs, and painting, where necessary. If your residence has substantial damage, contact our offices for assistance.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit to you as quickly as possible. Please note, any fees, back rent, and repair costs will be deducted from the security deposit.

Remember, you cannot use your deposit as your final month's rent. If you fail to pay rent for the last month of your stay, your delinquency will be reported to the appropriate credit bureaus. We may also pursue legal action for back rent owed.
