When the time comes to move on from your current rental property, there are several steps you need to take to make sure you leave the home or apartment in good condition. This will not only make your landlord happy, but will help ensure you receive as much of your security deposit back as possible.
Tips for moving from your Rental Property
- Check the Lease: Before doing anything else, check the lease. What does your landlord expect from you?
- Give Proper Notice: It is important to give your landlord proper notice before you begin the moving process. If you are unsure what to do, the entire process should be outlined in your lease, but most landlords require written notice as well as verbal notice. And don’t forget to include a forwarding address.
- Clean Up: Cleaning an entire rental home can be a big undertaking. So in order to maintain your sanity, it is best to take a systematic approach (outlined below). Or you may decide it is just easier to hire a cleaning service.
- Shut off Utilities: You don’t want to pay for the next resident’s power, so be sure to set a cut-off date for the utilities. We suggest the day after you move…just ion case
