Review our checklists before your move
If you're getting ready to make a move, there are a number of different things you need to address. We often hear questions from our clients about various steps of the moving process. We've created these checklists to answer commonly asked questions; please read through the information below before moving into or out of one of our homes.
If you have additional questions, feel free to get in touch with us: (719) 481-4000
First Month's Rent & Security Deposit
Your first month's rent check and security deposit must be provided at the lease signing. Confirm the amounts with us in advance.
Move-in Date & Inspection
All details of your move-in will be reviewed with you at the lease signing, including information about your initial inspection.
Utility accounts for your property need to be placed in your name immediately upon moving into the home. Ignoring this could result in losing access to power, gas, and water.
Notice of Intent to Vacate
Planning to leave your rental home? First, check your lease to determine your legal move-out date. You are responsible for paying rent through that date.
Next, provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate the premises.
Your home needs to be returned to us in rent-ready condition. This includes taking care of the following:
- Rental Cleaning: Properly clean every room in your property, taking the time to remove your belongings and any trash from the premises. We recommend working with a professional cleaning team for a deep clean. If the property hasn't been sufficiently cleaned upon move out, you will be charged for cleaning services.
- Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your property has outdoor space and you routinely address maintenance like landscaping, take care of this once more before vacating.
- Repairs: If any cosmetic damage has occurred inside your rental home, please resolve these problems before moving out. This includes replacing broken glass, repainting discolored walls and ceilings, and replacing burnt light bulbs.
The security deposit you pay at the outset of your lease protects against damage that could occur during your stay. We will conduct a final inspection after you leave the premises. If we identify any damage, we will schedule repairs and use funds from your deposit to cover the expenses.
We will return the remainder of the deposit to you with an itemized receipt.
