It gets trickier when you move out a rented apartment and move into another rental. As a rule, you need to follow a list of strict rules. None of us wants to lose their security deposit just because they forgot about a small rule.
Well, we don’t forget about them! Through the years of our experience in moving out and in rentals, we have learnt and improved methods for providing utmost care about your and your landlord’s property.
We Help You Save Time & Money
How? Simple! We already know all strict regulations, which usually apply for the rentals, and we have a certain strategy that helps us prevent any damage to the rental and your own Goods.
Before we start the move out of the old rental apartment or the move in the new one, we always make sure to cover the doors, walls and corners with protective pads. We don’t ignore the elevators, as well, so that you don’t have to bear any property damage or lose your security deposit.
As for time savings, those are possible because we know how to do our job both effective and fast. So, you won’t need to spend as much time outside your apartment, as people usually spend when choosing to take care of their move on their own.
Our Checklist for Rental Move Out/in
Based on our vast experience, we have compiled a checklist, which can help you if you are a fresh renter or an experienced one. Of course, its main aim is to ensure that you don’t lose your security deposit and don’t have any dues in your new place.
- Don’t take anything you don’t need with you
The fastest option to deal with such things is to throw them away. However, you can also find organizations, which will happily accept your donations, or simply give them to people who might need them.
- Clean the place before you leave.
The majority of landlords will not accept a dirty rental and might charge you the entire security deposit, or part of it for a filthy space and visible damages to their property.
- Record the condition of your rental.
This step is better to be performed when you move in. Even if you didn’t do it then, do it now, when you are moving out – to make sure that you won’t have to pay for the damages, which you did not cause.
- Make sure to pack all your belongings, including those in special storage spaces.
Thus, you will not forget to take something with you or dispose things that you don’t need.
- Notify the landlord that you are moving out in advance.
The best way is to check the move-out rules of your rental and send your landlord a written notice that you plan to move out. Make sure not to miss the deadlines, so you don’t need to pay the next month rental fee or lose your deposit for improper notification.
- Make sure to pay all the bills and have them ready to present to the landlord.
This will save you from the need to pay something for the old rental while already living in your new rental apartment.
If you have anything to add to this checklist, we always welcome your suggestions. And you are always welcome to use this list for your future moves.
