We want to make your move stress-free
Moving into a new home comes with a number of different responsibilities. We've created these checklists to ensure we're all on the same page. If after reading through the information below, you still have questions, give us a call: (360) 535-8104
Holding Fee Agreement
Upon being approved for one of our rental homes, you must complete the holding fee agreement that will be sent to you electronically. You will submit your Holding Fee payment via your new Tenant Portal. This must be completed within one business day. We will email you upon acceptance with additional information.
Security Deposit & Lease Signing
The funds from your holding fee agreement will be applied to your security deposit charges upon completing a lease agreement and moving into the property. Any remaining deposit balance must be paid before move in. Your lease will be sent to you electronically for review and signatures.
First Month's Rent
We will provide you with a pro-rated rental amount and a due date at the time of your acceptance into one of our homes. The pro-rated rent and move in charges will not appear in your Tenant Portal until all parties have signed the lease agreement. They must be paid in full before keys will be issued.
Utility accounts for your rental home must be placed in your name upon signing the lease. You’ll need to provide your account numbers in order to receive your keys.
Property Condition Report
A completed Property Condition Report will be sent to Resident electronically for signatures through DocuSign. A paper copy will be on the counter of the property for your use and review. If any changes or corrections are needed, the you have 3 days from move in to submit them to Details PM for review.
Your keys will be available for pickup at the property in a secured lockbox. The code will be sent to you the day your lease agreement starts if all necessary items have been completed.
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 Details 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 to us of your intent to vacate the premises, respecting the timeline in your lease.
Your home must be returned to us in the same condition you rented it. This involves the following:
1. 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, wash windows & tracks, and remove all trash from the property. Any garbage left behind may result in an additional fee. Please contact our office about required receipts such as carpet cleaning, chimney cleaning, etc.
2. 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, and replacing old lightbulbs.
Please be sure to address any damage that has occurred during your stay. This includes replacing lightbulbs and smoke/CO detector batteries, repairing any broken glass, wall patching and painting where necessary (please ask about nail holes before patching). If your residence has substantial damage, contact our office for assistance.
Your security deposit is meant to safeguard against any damage that could occur during your stay. We perform a final inspection after you move out. If we identify any damage, we will schedule repairs and use the deposit funds to cover these expenses.
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.
