Moving Checklists

We want to make your move a stress-free transition.

Moving into a new home comes with a long list of different responsibilities. We want to help you navigate through the challenges of this process. Please read through the information on this page to make certain your move goes smoothly.

If you have additional questions after reading through the details below, give us a call: 855-375-3300.

Move-in Checklist

Let us be the first to say, Welcome Home! Please keep the following in mind as you start the moving process.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent and your security deposit are both due at the lease signing. Please confirm the amounts with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We'll set your move-in date at your lease signing. We will also provide all of the information you need about the first inspection.

Utilities

Utility accounts for your rental home need to be placed in your name. Please do this as quickly as possible after moving into your new home. You are also responsible for keeping your utility accounts current throughout the duration of your lease.

Move-out Checklist

Getting ready to move to a new home? Please review the move-out details below to make sure everything goes well.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

If you wish to leave your residence, you'll need to refer to the terms outlined in your lease. Certain fees may apply if you choose to break your lease. Please be sure to provide written notification of us your intent to vacate the premises, respecting the timeline in your lease.

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.
