9 Key Steps For A Successful Tenant Move Out

There will come a time when your tenants will move out and you will have to start the rental cycle all over again. We have a great deal of experience in the move out procedure and have defined nine key steps you can use to conduct a successful move out.

Step 1 – Make sure there is a 30 day written notice to vacate in the lease.

Step 2–  Send the tenant detailed instructions regarding the move out around the 15th of the month.

Step 3- Contact the utility companies to turn on services the day after the move out.

Step 4- Call tenant an hour before the move out to confirm important details regarding the move out.

Step 5- Make sure you bring a move out inspection form, your camera and for rent signs to the move out.

Step 6- Collect keys and remotes from tenant and advise the tenant to wait outside. This will allow you to focus with no distractions.

Step 7- Complete move out inspection using your detailed form and descriptive photos.

Step 8- Review the facts of move out and advise tenants of disposition process. Have tenants sign the move out form.

Step 9- Compare move out vs. move in to determine deposit disbursement.
