Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

You'll need to pay your first month's rent, security deposit, and any additional fees at the time of the lease signing. If you have any questions about the final amounts or accepted forms of payment, please contact us.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Your official move-in date and all relevant inspection information will be provided at the lease signing.

Utilities

Utilities for your rental property should be placed in your name as quickly as possible after receiving the keys. Please do this rapidly to avoid any outages or administrative fees associated with restoring access.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Before you vacate your rental home, please give us written notice of your intent to leave the premises. Please refer to your lease to determine your legal move-out date. Remember, you are responsible for your rent through this date.

Property Condition

Your home needs to be returned to us in its original condition. Please address these items:

  • Rental Cleaning: Your home needs to be carefully cleaned before you move out of your rental home. Please sweep or vacuum all of the floors, wipe down the countertops and hard surfaces, and sanitize the bathroom and kitchen areas.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you're generally responsible for the maintenance tasks outside of your home, such as mowing or weeding, please take care of these once more before you move out.
  • Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay, you'll need to resolve these issues . Take care of cosmetic problems like stained paint or holes left by nails or screws. You can also work with us directly to find an amicable solution for bigger problems.

Security Deposit

Your security deposit serves as protection against any damage that might occur during your stay. We conduct a final inspection after you move out, and if we identify any damage, we'll schedule repairs. All costs associated with these repairs will be deducted from your security deposit.

The remainder will be returned to you within 30 days, in accordance with South Carolina law.
