The security deposit cannot be used for the last month’s rent payment.

A: We would be happy to meet you to conduct a move-out inspection on or before the last day of your lease. It is necessary to return all keys at the time of the inspection. All personal items must be removed from the property and cleaning and damage repairs completed before the scheduled inspection. To avoid move-out charges the following list details, but does not limit what is expected of you.

  1. The stove should be cleaned thoroughly. This includes drip pans, the broiler pan (if applicable), racks and the inside of the oven. If you use oven cleaner, take necessary precautions to protect yourself, the floor, cabinets and anything surrounding the stove. DO NOT USE OVEN CLEANER ON MICROWAVES OR CONTINUOUS CLEAN OVENS.
     
  2.  The refrigerator interior and exterior should be cleaned with a mild detergent. Clean all shelves, drawers and the freezer. The ice trays, butter dish and egg carton should be cleaned and left in the refrigerator. Clean under and beside the refrigerator also. KEEP REFRIGERATOR ON.
     
  3. The dishwasher should be cleaned inside and outside. Be sure no items have fallen through the racks and lay on a heating element or near the drain.
     
  4. Wipe off all kitchen cabinet shelves and doors. Remove all loose shelf paper. Clean countertops and sink. Ensure that the disposal is working properly and no food remains in it.
     
  5. Clean and dust all windows. Blinds, draperies (if applicable), baseboards/chair railing, and door tops. Smoke alarms should be operable (replace battery if needed).
