Moving Checklists

We simplify the move-in & move-out process.

We understand that moving can be a stressful time. That's why we've crafted these helpful moving checklists to help streamline the process.

Whether you're moving into a Designation Property Management property or saying goodbye for now, these simple lists provide a blueprint for a successful move. If you need extra assistance, give our team a call: (323) 452-6027.

Move-in Checklist

We're excited to welcome you to your new home.

Please use the checklist below as a guideline for a seamless introduction to your rental property: 

First Month's Rent & Deposit

We require your first month's rent at the lease signing. Your security deposit will be held as collateral throughout the duration of your lease.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your official move-in date when your security deposit is received. A link to an on line inspection  complete with photos will be in your lease documents

Utilities

Check your lease for which utilities must be placed in your name. To prevent a potential outage, be sure to place accounts under your name as quickly as possible. We recommend calling the utility companies five days before taking occupancy.

Move-out Checklist

All good things must come to an end.

While we're sad to see you go, this move-out checklist should prove useful as you prepare to leave your Designation Property Management rental.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

If you wish to leave your residence, you'll need to refer to the terms outlined in your lease. Certain fees may apply if you choose to break your lease. Please be sure to provide written notification of us your intent to vacate the premises, respecting the timeline in your lease.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit to you as quickly as possible. Please note, any fees, back rent, and repair costs will be deducted from the security deposit.

Remember, you cannot use your deposit as your final month's rent. If you fail to pay rent for the last month of your stay, your delinquency will be reported to the appropriate credit bureaus. We may also pursue legal action for back rent owed.

Property Condition

You are responsible for returning your property to rent-ready condition. This includes addressing the following elements:

  • Rental Cleaning: Your unit must be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Please refer to the instructions sent with your move out package. Any garbage left behind may result in an additional fee.
  • Outdoor Areas: You must also return your outdoor living space to its original condition.
  • Repairs: Please be sure to address any damage that has occurred during your stay. This includes patching holes left from nails and screws, replacing lightbulbs, and painting, where necessary, only if you have the orginal brand, color and type of paint.  If your residence has substantial damage, contact our offices for assistance.
