Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent check and security deposit are both due at the lease signing, along with any other applicable fees. Please confirm the amounts with our team in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will set the official move-in date at the lease signing. Please review the property checklist we use to verify that your rental home is in good condition before you take occupancy.


You need to place all utility accounts for your home in your name immediately. Failure to promptly set up new accounts may result in you losing access to utilities in your unit.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Planning to move out of your rental home? Please provide us with written notice of your plans in accordance with the terms of your lease. Refer to your lease for more specific details.

Property Condition

Before you return the keys for your rental home, you need to bring it back to rent-ready condition; in other words, the new tenants should be able to move in immediately following your departure.

To achieve this, please take the following instructions into consideration:

Rental Cleaning: Your property must be thoroughly cleaned, with all garbage and personal belongings removed from the home. Pay special attention in the kitchen and bathroom(s), where you'll need to sanitize hard surfaces & wipe down walls and counters. All floors in the rental must be vacuumed/mopped/swept.

Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your rental home has outdoor space where you routinely address landscaping chores, take care of these once more before vacating the premises.

Repairs: Please patch all nail and screw holes, replace burnt lightbulbs, and repaint any discolored walls before moving out. If significant damage has taken place in your rental, it's best to work with our team to find an amicable resolution.

Refer to our condition checklist to make sure you've covered all of your bases.

Security Deposit

Following your departure from the rental home, our team will perform a final inspection to check for damage. If we find new damage, we'll make repairs and use the security deposit to cover these expenses. The remainder of your deposit will be returned to you promptly.

Please remember, your security deposit cannot be used as a rent payment. You are responsible for paying your final month's rent.
