We simplify the move-in & move-out process.

We understand that moving house can be a stressful time, which is why we've crafted these helpful moving checklists to help streamline the process. Whether you're moving into a RentLife property or saying goodbye for now, these simple lists provide a blueprint for a successful move.

Move-in Checklist

We're excited to welcome you to your new home. Please use the checklist below as a guideline for a seamless introduction to your rental property:

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Please note, your first month's rent and your security deposit are both due at the lease signing. If you owe any other fees, these are also payable at that time. Confirm the amounts with us in advance, as we cannot give you access to the property without all funds in place.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your official move-in date. If necessary, an inspection will also be scheduled at this time.

Utilities

As a Landlord Property Management tenant, you are responsible for keeping all utility accounts current. Please call providers as quickly as possible after taking possession of the home to put the accounts in your name. Failure to do so promptly may result in outages or administrative fees associated with restoring access.

Move-out Checklist

All good things must come to an end. While we're sad to see you go, this move-out checklist should prove useful as you prepare to leave your RentLife rental.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

If you wish to leave your residence, you'll need to refer to the terms outlined in your lease. Certain fees may apply if you choose to break your lease. Please be sure to provide written notification of us your intent to vacate the premises, respecting the timeline in your lease.

Property Condition

You are responsible for returning your property to rent-ready condition. This includes addressing the following elements:

• Rental Cleaning: Your unit must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Please pay special attention to the kitchens and bathrooms, wiping countertops, cabinets, and appliances. You also need to vacuum and shampoo carpeted areas, wash windows, and remove all debris from the property. Any garbage left behind may result in an additional fee.

• Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: You must also return your outdoor living space to its original condition. Please ensure you've addressed all landscaping responsibilities, including trimming shrubs, mowing the lawn, weeding flowerbeds, and replacing missing or burnt out light bulbs.

• Repairs: Please be sure to address any damage that has occurred during your stay. This includes patching holes left from nails and screws, replacing light bulbs, and painting, where necessary. If your residence has substantial damage, contact our offices for assistance.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit to you as quickly as possible. Please note, any fees, back rent, and repair costs will be deducted from the security deposit.

Remember, you cannot use your deposit as your final month's rent. If you fail to pay rent for the last month of your stay, your delinquency will be reported to the appropriate credit bureaus. We may also pursue legal action for back rent owed.
