Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent payment, security deposit, and any unpaid fees associated with your application all must be paid at the lease signing. We cannot release your keys without these funds.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Our team will schedule your move-in and provide all necessary information about the first inspection when you sign the lease.


As a tenant in one of our properties, you agree to keep all of your utility accounts current. Please call the utility companies to put the accounts in your name immediately after your lease signing. This will ensure you don't lose access to your utilities.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Planning to move out of your rental home? Please provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate the property.

Property Condition

Before you vacate your rental home, you'll need to remove all of your personal items and carefully clean the unit. This includes the steps below:

  • Rental Cleaning: Remove all garbage from the property, sweep/vacuum/mop the floors, and wipe down the walls and any hard surfaces. Please pay extra attention in the kitchen and bathrooms. For full cleaning instructions, contact us.
  • Repairs: If any damage has occurred inside your rental home, please make every effort to repair these problems. For larger issues, work with our team to find an amicable solution.

Security Deposit

The security deposit you pay at the beginning of your lease protects against any unrepaired damage. After your departure, our team will conduct a final inspection and make any repairs necessary. These expenses will be taken out of the deposit.

The remainder will be returned to you.

Remember, your security deposit is not your final month's rent payment and you cannot use these funds for this purpose. Failure to pay your last rent bill on time will result in administrative fees and collections action, if necessary.
