Moving Checklists

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

Move-in Checklist

  • Holding Fee Agreement

    Upon being approved for one of our rental homes, you must complete the holding fee agreement and return it with a money order or cashier's check (payable to Details Property Management) to our office. 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. Any remaining deposit balance must be paid via cashier’s check or money order 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.

  • Key Pickup

    Your keys will be available for pickup in our offices, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:30PM on the start date of your lease. Call our office to schedule a key pickup time.

  • Utilities

    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 pick up your keys.

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 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.

  • Property Condition

    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.

3. Repairs
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.

  • Security Deposit

    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.
