Move-in Checklist

Let us be the first to welcome you to your new home. Before you officially move in, take a moment to make certain you've addressed the following important steps:

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

You must pay your first month's rent and the security deposit for your rental home at the lease signing. Please confirm the amounts with our team before your scheduled meeting.

Move-in Date & Inspection

If an inspection is necessary, we'll schedule one with you on the move-in date. The date will also be officially set at the lease signing and information will be provided regarding the keys.

Utilities

As a tenant with Robert C. White, you are responsible for placing your utility accounts in your name. Please be sure to take care of this several days before taking occupancy. We recommend calling local providers at least five days in advance, which should prevent administrative fees or temporary outages due to an inactive account.

Move-out Checklist

While we're sad to see you go, it's important not to overlook any of your responsibilities as you prepare to say goodbye to your rental home with Robert C. White & Company.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Please note, we require written notice of your intent to vacate your home. You must notify us at least 45 days in advance. Provide notice online.

Property Condition

Your home needs to be returned to the condition in which you originally rented it. Be sure to take care of the following:

  • Rental Cleaning: After removing your belongings from your rental property, thoroughly clean all rooms in your home. Your floors must be swept and mopped or vacuumed. Wipe down all surfaces and pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your home has outdoor living space or a backyard, be sure to take care of landscaping chores like mowing the lawn, replacing burnt lightbulbs, and weeding flowerbeds before vacating the premises.
  • Repairs: All damage that occurred during your stay must be repaired. Patch nail and screw holes, repaint walls if necessary, and replace burnt bulbs. If more substantial damage is present, speak to one of our managers to find an amicable resolution.

Security Deposit

We strive to return security deposits quickly. After leaving your rental home, our team will conduct a final inspection of the property. If damage has occurred, we will schedule repairs and deduct expenses from your deposit before returning it to you.

Remember, you are liable for your last month's rent and cannot use your deposit to cover this expense. Failure to make your final payment will result in collections action.
