Is your big day approaching? Long distance movers agree that moving out of a rental property is naturally stressful. As a tenant, you are expected to know what your responsibilities are before moving out. Fear not, by using our tenant move out checklist compiled by long distance movers, you are guaranteed a hassle-free relocation.
Check your lease agreement
As a lessee, it is crucial that you read your contract from start to finish to ensure you understand what your responsibilities are. The most important factor is that you are clear on how far in advance you are obligated to notify your landlord that you will be moving out. That way you can start preparing for your big move and book one of the best relocation companies (a.k.a. Master Movers) in advance.
Inspect the property for any damage
The golden rule is to leave the house in the same condition as you found it, or better. Often during your stay, you may have caused damage that you are unaware of. It is your responsibility as a tenant to repair any damage you may have caused, such as:
- Holes in the wall from hanging photo frames or artwork.
- Scratched or cracked tiles.
- Stains on the walls.
- Broken or missing light fixtures.
Pay up your bills
Without your landlord reminding you, it is your responsibility to settle all your unpaid bills. Remember to keep all your receipts as proof that you paid all of what you owe. Keep in mind the landlord may use your deposit to cover any unpaid accounts or damages to the property.
Clean the rental property
Cleaning will help get your mind off things and save you from unwanted conflict. Make sure before you move out that your rental property has been thoroughly cleaned. Follow this simple cleaning checklist and before you know it, your rental property will be spotless.
- Mop tiled floors and vacuum carpets.
- Wipe down light switches, outlets, and vents.
- Clean all the windows and wipe down window sills.
- Clear any clogged drain pipes.
- Thoroughly clean and sanitize the toilet bowl, sink, shower, and bathtub.
Remember to leave satellite dishes and curtain rails behind that do not belong to you.
