Tenant Frequenty Asked Questions
Can I move in a day early? / Can I push my move in date back?
The move in date listed by you on your application will be the date approved for move in. If after approval you need to change the date of occupancy, you will need to contact our office to see if this is doable. Typically, changing your move in date to a different date than already approved; results in having to contact the owner for re-approval.
Can I pay out my security deposit? Is there a way around paying it up front?
Deposit(s) are due upon approval to take the home off the market. Until the deposit is paid, the home will remain on the market for other people to apply.
Do I get all my deposit back after I leave?
It is the hope and goal of your Landlord that you receive 100% of your security deposit after the end of your tenancy. Your Landlord has asked us to keep all security deposits in a real estate trust account. When it is time to leave we provide a list of instructions so you have every opportunity of getting 100% of your security deposit returned when you leave. If any damage is beyond normal wear and tear and not properly repaired then the expense to repair will be assessed in accordance with your lease and applicable laws. Any damages assessed to your account will be documented for you in an itemized accounting along with any refunded monies. We work with your Landlord to insure you are not charged for normal wear and tear.
