Moving Checklist

Make your move as simple as possible.

We know moving is challenging.

We've helped countless tenants to move over the course of the past decade and we know moving comes with plenty of responsibilities. As you prepare to make your move, read through the information below.

Move-in Checklist

Congratulations on moving into a Pro Property Management rental home. Start your stay off right by keeping the following in mind.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent and security deposit should be certified fund and paid at the lease signing. Confirm the amounts with us in advance, as we cannot release the keys without the full payment.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will provide all information regarding your move-in and the initial inspection at the time of the lease signing.

Rent Payment Policy

If rent is not received by the 9th in our office, you will be charged a late fee. If rent is not received by the 15th in our office, you will receive a Notice to Quit from the marshall's office and be charged an additional $75.

When you do not pay by the date listed on the marshall notice, we will start an eviction and you will be charged an additional $600.

If you need to set-up a payment plan, call our office as soon as possible to avoid some of these extra fees.

Utilities

You are responsible for keeping all accounts associated with your rental home in good standing. We require you to provide us your utility account numbers during the lease signing so please come prepared with that information.

Move-out Checklist

We're always saddened to see good tenants move on, but we do hope you've enjoyed your stay with us.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Please provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate your rental home at least 30 days before your lease expires. Check your lease to determine your move-out date. Remember, you are responsible for paying rent through that date, regardless of whether you leave the premises early. Expired leases will automatically convert to a month to month agreement with a 3% rent increase.

Property Condition

Before you can return your keys, you need to ensure your home is back in its original condition:

  • Rental Cleaning: Carefully clean every room in your rental home and remove all of your belongings, as well as garbage. Sanitize the bathrooms and kitchen and wipe down floors, walls, and ceilings. Please note we require all carpets to be professionally cleaned and tenants to provide the receipt upon move out.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you regularly address landscaping maintenance at your property, take care of this once more before leaving.
  • Repairs: If any damage has occurred during your stay, take the necessary steps to make the repairs before vacating. This includes patching nail and screw holes and repainting areas where you painted a new color.

Security Deposit

The security deposit you pay at the outset of your lease serves as protection against any damage that could occur during your stay. We will perform a final inspection when you move out to check for damages.

If we identify any damages, we will schedule repair visits and deduct expenses for these visits from your deposit.

The remainder will be returned to you, along with an itemized statement within 30 days from when you move out, return keys and provide your forwarding address.
