Find out how we handle the end of a lease & what the move-out process looks like for our current tenants.
If you are on a lease-to-purchase agreement, this process may differ. Please get in touch with our offices to speak to a representative.
1. Move-Out Notice is Given:
When the tenant has decided to move out, they are required to notify the office in writing. The move-out date must match the lease end date agreed to in the lease. Tenants must give notice at least 30 days before the date they plan to move out. Should the move-out date differ from the lease end date, there may need to be amendments to extend the lease, or there may be charges to end the lease agreement early.
Notice can be given on the online tenant portal, AppFolio, under the Contact Us tab.
2. Move-Out Date is Scheduled:
|Move-Out notice given in writing||30 days before move-out|
|Early showings *optional||Anytime before moving day *with permission|
|The unit is cleaned, and belongings are removed||By or before moving day|
|Moving day||The lease end date|
|Locks are changed, and the unit is inspected||24 hours after moving day|
|Deposits and charges are reconciled||Within 30 days of moving day|
3. Moving Day:
- The unit is clean (tenants will be emailed a checklist to use as a guide)
- All personal belongings have been removed
- The unit has been completely vacated
- The unit is in the same or similar condition as it was when the tenant moved in
- I.e., damages to the property.
Keys should be left in the lock box which was installed at the property. The office will notify you of the code for this lockbox before installing it. However, you can call us to verify this information as well.
Locks will be changed 24 hours after moving the moving date.
Failure to leave the keys in the lockbox will result in a fine for the lock change to the tenant.
4. Fees & Deposits Reconciled:
Deposit refunds are issued through a check payable to the tenant.
