Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Looking to vacate your rental home? Provide us with written notice of your upcoming departure. This gives us time to begin preparing for a new tenant.

Property Condition

You must return your home to its original condition before vacating your unit. This includes:

  • Rental Cleaning: Your home needs to be thoroughly cleaned before you leave. Remove all of your belongings, vacuum and shampoo the carpets, and wipe down all hard surfaces.
  • Repairs: Please take the necessary steps tor resolve cosmetic issues, such as nail and screw holes, broken glass, and unapproved paint colors.

Security Deposit

All tenants pay a security deposit before moving into a Cobalt Property Services unit. This deposit protects against potential damage. 

After you move out of your unit, we perform a final inspection. If damages are identified, we will use the deposit funds to make repairs. An itemized statement and the remainder will be returned to you.
