MOVING OUT

Thank you for having chosen one of our buildings as your home! We hope you enjoyed your time with us. Customer service is what sets us apart and we hope that we lived up to your expectations.

Here are some important reminders about the move-out process:

***If you are currently set up with auto-pay through our tenant portal, you will need to log on and cancel the auto-pay option. If you neglect to do this, your account will automatically be charged a full months rent instead of the pro-rated amount.***

If you are in a month to month contract, you are required to give a 30 day written notice of your intentions to vacate the unit to your manager. You can download an official 30 day notice in the ‘Forms and Info’ section with in the ‘Resident Resources’ Tab.

If you are in a lease and need to break your lease, contact your manager about a move-out date and pay the lease break fee which is 1.5X your rent.

Please remember to include your forwarding address as we need this to be able to send you your deposit and move-out accounting.

The security deposit is not your last month’s rent. It is held until after you move out in case there are any potential damages. Last months rent is due during the last month of occupancy.

We pro-rate everything based on a 30 day calendar month. Divide your rent by 30 and then multiply that number by the number of days. For example, if your rent is $1500/mo and you will be out on the 15th. You would divide 1500/30=50 then 50X15= $750

Leave the entire apartment clean. This also includes appliances, cabinets, floors and removal of nails (please do not patch holes). Please review the checklist below that is used by our professional cleaning staff when they clean a vacancy. You may find it useful as a guideline when you are cleaning your apartment.

You can download a printable version of this list in the ‘Forms and Info’ section of the ‘Resident Resources’ tab on this site.

Replace light bulbs that are out.

Once you have removed all of your belongings and cleaned the apartment, please drop your keys where your manager has instructed you to do so. Make sure they are in an envelope clearly labeled with your name and address.

Moving should be done during daytime or early evening hours and never between 10PM and 9AM. Any damage to the building occurring during the move is your responsibility. All boxes must be broken down for recycling.

It is your responsibility to properly dispose of all unwanted items. Removal of any furniture, garbage or other items left in the apartment or on the grounds at the time you vacate will be charged directly to you. Filling trash receptacles with unwanted items will result in an additional charge.

Any refund and list of charges of the security deposit will be mailed within 30 days of move-out. Please provide us with your forwarding address.

Refund checks will be in the name of all residents on the lease.

As you begin the process of applying to rent elsewhere, please note that all rental references / inquiries about your time with us, must be faxed to our main office. The office Fax number is 503.227.1074

You do not need to schedule a move out inspection with your manager. Your unit will be inspected shortly after your move out is completed.

Please contact your manager if you have any further questions. Thank you again for choosing to live in one of our classic properties!
