Moving residents in and out of their homes is a major aspect of managing property assets. Below are just some of the details we manage on our owners’ behalf.
Attention to detail in handling a resident’s move-in and move-out is for the benefit of both the homeowner and the resident. But, this can also be a time of conflict between you and your residents. We help keep misunderstandings to a minimum by following our well-defined procedures.
Residents move in on the date noted in their lease as ‘Lease Term Begin Date.’
Prior to actually moving in furniture, a walk-through must be completed, and a condition report is to be filled out noting any existing property damage.
The same form will be used at move-out to note any damage that isn’t considered “normal wear and tear.”
The resident may accompany management in doing the move-out walk-thru. This walk-through is to document any damage that could result in partial or full forfeiture of deposit.
To receive a deposit refund, the resident must have all personal items out of the property and off the premises by 5pm of the last day of the lease.
Any personal items left in the property will be disposed of by management according to landlord-tenant law. There could be charges against deposits if there is a cost involved or disposal fee. The resident is to clean the home and return it to the condition it was in upon move-in.
Safe Harbor has helped property owners and residents for decades make the move-in, move-out process smooth. We can help you as well!
