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

We require your first month's rent and security deposit at the lease signing. Your security deposit will be held as collateral throughout the duration of your lease.

Move-in Date & Inspection

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

Utilities

All utilities must be placed in your name. To prevent a potential outage, be sure to place accounts under your name as quickly as possible. We recommend calling the utility companies five days before taking occupancy. Utility Concierge Form

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 CloverLeaf Property Management 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 and professionally maid cleaned and carpet/tile/grout 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 refuse 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 mowing the lawn, weeding flowerbeds, free of all debris and replacing burnt out exterior lightbulbs.
  • Repairs: Please be sure to address any damage that has occurred during your stay. This includes patching holes left from nails and screws, replacing lightbulbs, and painting, where necessary. If your residence has substantial damage, contact our offices for assistance.

Key Return

Door keys must be left in the lockbox provided at time of move in, if you are unable to locate the lockbox, pleas let us know and one will be provided. All garage remotes, amenity access devices, and all other remotes must be left in a kitchen drawer.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit to you within the 30 days explained in the lease contract. 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.
