Moving Checklists

We want your move to be as easy as possible

Moving into a new property comes with a laundry list of chores and responsibilities. We know the process can be stressful and we want to do everything we can to help make this a seamless transition. We've created the checklists below using the questions we frequently hear from tenants. Please read through the information on this page and if you still have questions, give us a call: (706­) 496-­8062

Move-in Checklist

Congratulations on your acceptance into a Lucky Star Property Management home. We're excited to welcome you onboard.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent payment, security deposit, and all other applicable fees need to be paid at your lease signing.

Move-in Date & Inspection

All information regarding your move-in, including the date, key exchange, and inspection details will be provided at the signing.

Utilities

We require all tenants to place the utility accounts for the rental home in their name immediately upon taking occupancy. Do this quickly to ensure you do not lose access to your utilities. If you fail to contact the utility provider and access is cut off, you will be responsible for all fees associated with restoring this access. 

Move-out Checklist

Preparing to leave your home? Take the right steps to leave on a good note.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

We ask all tenants to provide us with written notice of intent to vacate the premises. This gives our team time to begin making preparations for the next tenant.

Property Condition

You must return your rental home to us in rent-ready condition; in other words, it should be ready for someone to move in upon your departure. 

  • Rental Cleaning: Take the steps to properly clean the rental home. Remove all of your possessions, vacuum and sweep the floors, and sanitize appliances and hard surfaces.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you are responsible for ongoing lawn care and outdoor maintenance tasks, please address these once more immediately before moving.
  • Repairs: If any damage has occurred during your stay, take the necessary steps to repair the damage. This includes replacing burnt light bulbs, repainting rooms where you've changed the wall color, and patching nail and screw holes. For more significant damage, work with our team to find an amicable solution.

Security Deposit

The security deposit you pay at the outset of your lease serves as protection against damage that might occur during your stay. After you vacate the home, we conduct a final inspection to check for such damage. If we identify any, we will schedule repair visits. 

All expenses associated with these repairs will be deducted from your deposit. The remainder will be returned to you, along with an itemized statement.
