Moving Checklists

READ THROUGH THE CHECKLISTS TO GUIDE YOUR MOVE

As you prepare to make a move, we know there are a number of different things on your mind. We often get questions from our tenants about various aspects of the moving process, so we've created these checklists to answer some of the most common concerns. If after reading through the information below you still need assistance, get in touch: (408) 758-0537

Move-in Checklist

FIRST MONTH'S RENT & SECURITY DEPOSIT

Your first month's rent payment and your security deposit (along with any other fees) must be paid at the lease signing with certified funds. Please confirm these totals with us.

MOVE-IN DATE & INSPECTION

All of the details regarding your official move-in date, including the key exchange, will be discussed at the lease signing.

UTILITIES

As a reminder, you are responsible for putting all of the utility accounts for your rental in your name. Take care of this immediately upon signing the lease.

Move-out Checklist

NOTICE OF INTENT TO VACATE

We ask all tenants to provide written notice of intent to vacate. This gives us the opportunity to begin preparing for new renters. Check your lease to determine your move-out date.

PROPERTY CONDITION

Before handing in the keys, please make certain you've brought your property back to its original rental condition. This includes the following:

Rental Cleaning: Carefully clean every room in your home, taking care to remove any personal belongings and all garbage. Pay extra attention in the kitchen, where you'll need to wipe out cabinets, sanitize all hard surfaces, and remove any grease on the stovetop.
Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your rental home has outdoor space where you regularly handle ongoing maintenance chores, do these once more immediately before vacating.
Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay, please take the necessary steps to resolve these issues. Cosmetic problems like nail and screw holes, burnt lightbulbs, and paint discoloration can be easily fixed. For larger problems, work with our team to find a solution.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

The security deposit you pay at the outset of your lease serves as protection against any damage that might occur during your stay. After you leave the home, we will conduct a final inspection and verify that everything is in working order.

Should we identify any damage, we will schedule repairs and deduct the expenses from your security deposit. The remainder of the deposit will be returned to you.
