Moving Checklists

We want to make your move as seamless as possible

Moving is often a complicated process, with a number of different responsibilities on your plate. We've created these helpful moving checklists to address some of the questions we hear most frequently from our tenants. Please review the details below and if you have any additional concerns that aren't addressed here, don't hesitate to give us a call: (323) 992-6130

Move-in Checklist

  • First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

    Your first month's rent and security deposit both must be paid in advance of your move-in. Please confirm the amounts with us before the lease signing.

  • Move-in Date & Inspection

    Your official move-in date will be set at the lease signing. We will also provide all information about the initial inspection visit.

  • Utilities

    All utilities must be placed in your name immediately following the lease signing. Take care of this promptly or you may lose access to utilities inside the home; you will be responsible for any fees associated with restoring access, should this occur.

Move-out Checklist

  • Notice of Intent to Vacate

    Planning to move out of your home? Please provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate. Refer to your lease for specific terms regarding the end of your stay with us.

  • Property Condition

    Before you hand in the keys for your rental property, it needs to be brought back to its original rent-ready condition. This includes taking care of the following:

    • Rental Cleaning: Your rental unit must be cleaned and sanitized before you leave. Please take the time to remove all garbage and personal belongings from the property. Go room-by-room, vacuuming/mopping floors, wiping down hard surfaces, and making repairs as necessary (see below).
    • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you typically take care of outdoor landscaping tasks, please don't forget these; make sure your outdoor space looks clean and tidy.
    • Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay, make every effort to repair these issues before moving out. This includes patching nail and screw holes, replacing any broken items, and ensuring smoke detectors/lightbulbs are all functional. For more serious repairs, contact our team to find an amicable solution.
  • Security Deposit

    Your security deposit covers damage that isn't repaired before your departure. We will perform a final inspection after you vacate the home; if we find any damage beyond normal wear and tear, we will schedule repairs and bill you for these expenses.

  • Remember, your deposit is not your final rent check. These funds are not available for use on your last month's rent. Failure to promptly pay your rent may result in administrative fees, legal action, and derogatory reporting to credit bureaus.
