Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent and your security deposit must be paid to sign a lease with us. Confirm these amounts with us.

Move-in Date & Inspection

After you sign the lease, we will schedule a move-in date and provide all information about inspections.


You need to place all utilities for your rental home in your name. Please do this as quickly as possible after signing a lease, to avoid losing access to any of your utilities.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Planning to move out of your rental home? Please provide written notice of your intent to vacate the premises, giving us at least 30 days notice in accordance with your lease.

Property Condition

Before you move out of your rental home, you need to take care of the following:

Rental Cleaning: Carefully clean your rental property, removing all of your belongings and any garbage. Go room to room, wiping down hard surfaces and cleaning the floors. Pay special attention in the bathrooms and kitchen, where you'll need to sanitize all surfaces.

Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your rental home has outdoor space where you routinely address lawn care and other maintenance tasks, lease take care of these responsibilities once more before vacating.

Repairs: Please address any necessary repairs before moving out of your rental property. This may include replacing broken glass, repainting, or patching nail and screw holes.

Security Deposit

We will perform a final inspection after you move out of your home. If we identify any damage, we will schedule repairs and use the funds from your deposit to cover these expenses. The remainder will be returned to you.

Remember, you cannot use your deposit as your final month's rent. Failure to pay your final rent check may result in your delinquency being reporting to credit bureaus and legal action.
