Moving Checklists

Comprehensive information for your upcoming move

Moving into a new home comes with plenty of responsibilities. As you prepare to make a move, use the information in our checklists to guide your decisions. We've compiled these simple lists using questions we often hear from our tenants. If after reading through the checklists you still have questions, please call our offices: (520) 551-7247

Move-in Checklist

We're excited to welcome you to your new home. Please use the checklist below as a guideline for a seamless introduction to your rental property:

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

We require your first month's rent and security deposit at the lease signing. Your security deposit will be held as collateral throughout the duration of your lease.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your official move-in date at the lease signing. If necessary, an inspection will also be scheduled at this time.


All utilities must be placed in your name. To prevent a potential outage, be sure to place accounts under your name as quickly as possible. We recommend calling the utility companies five days before taking occupancy.

Move-out Checklist

We're always sad to say goodbye to good tenants. As you prepare to leave one of our properties, keep the following important keys in mind.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

You must provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate. Please check your lease to determine the move-out date.

Property Condition

To recover the full security deposit, your property should be returned to its initial condition:

  • Rental Cleaning: Thoroughly clean your rental unit, taking care to remove all garbage and personal possessions from the property. This should include sweeping/vacuuming/mopping floors and wiping down hard surfaces and walls. You may also want to consider contracting with a professional cleaner to ensure you don't leave anything undone.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas:Replace all lightbulbs and handle any outdoor maintenance tasks once more before moving out.
  • Repairs: Please take care of any cosmetic damage that occurred during your stay, including nail and screw holes. If substantial damage has occurred, please work with our team to resolve the problem amicably.

Security Deposit

A final inspection will be conducted after you move out. Any damage identified during this inspection will be repaired at your expense. Costs associated with repairing the home will be deducted from the security deposit.

We will make every effort to return the remainder as quickly as possible.
