First Month's Rent & Security Deposit
Your first month's rent check, security deposit, and any other applicable fees are all payable at the lease signing. Be sure to confirm the amount and payment method with our team in advance.
Move-in Date & Inspection
We will handle all move-in steps at the lease signing, including providing the keys and setting the move-in date. We will also provide an overview of our inspection policies at this time.
One of the stipulations of your lease is that all utility accounts must be placed in your name. Please call the relevant utility providers immediately after moving in to your home. Any delay could result in outages or administrative fees.
We're always sad to say goodbye to good renters, but we wish you the best of luck in your future housing endeavors.
Notice of Intent to Vacate
You'll need to provide us with written notice of your intent to move out of your property. This should be taken care of well in advance, according to the terms set out by our lease agreement. Please refer to your lease to learn more about the duration of your stay.
Remember, if you leave before the end of your lease, you are liable for all rent payments through the agreed move-out date.
Before you return the keys to your rental property, you'll need to take care of the following:
- Rental Cleaning: Thoroughly clean the home after removing all possessions from the property. Please note, any trash or personal effects left behind may result in additional fees. Sweep/mop/vacuum all floors, wipe down hard surfaces (including walls), and sanitize the bathrooms and kitchens.
- Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: Homes with outdoor space often have maintenance needs, such as mowing the lawn and weeding the landscape beds. Take care of these responsibilities one last time before moving out.
- Repairs: Any damage beyond wear and tear that occurs during your stay must be addressed. Patch any holes left by nails and screws, replace burnt lightbulbs, and repaint if necessary. If extensive damage has occurred, it's better to coordinate with our managers to get the problem resolved amicably.
We aim to return security deposits as quickly as possible after your departure. We will perform a final inspection to check for any damage that has taken place, and if necessary, we'll schedule visits from vendors to address the problem(s). The cost for these repairs will be deducted from the deposit.
It's important to note that the security deposit cannot be used to pay your final rent bill.
The security deposit is a safeguard if something goes wrong and can only be used for such purposes.
