Looking to make a move? We make it easy.
Moving into a new rental home is an exciting time, but there are a number of responsibilities on your shoulders as you make this transition. We often hear questions from our tenants about different aspects of the process, which is why we've created these helpful checklists. Please read through the information below to get answers to your questions about moving.
If you still need help, don't hesitate to get in touch with us: (904) 236-4800
First Month's Rent & Security Deposit
You'll need to pay your first month's rent, your security deposit, and any other applicable fees at the time of the lease signing.
Move-in Date & Inspection
Your move-in inspection, key exchange, and other important details will all be discussed at the lease signing.
As a NestTenders Property Management tenant, you need to place all utility accounts for your rental home in your name. These should be kept in good standing throughout the duration of your tenancy.
Notice of Intent to Vacate
If you're planning to leave your rental at the end of your current lease, please provide us with written notice of your intent to vacate the premises. Remember, this notice does not invalidate your lease. You are responsible for paying rent through the date stipulated in your lease.
Before you return your keys to us, we ask that you take the steps necessary to bring your rental back to its original condition.
- Rental Cleaning: Carefully clean your property, taking the time to remove your belongings and any trash from the premises. You should also sanitize bathroom and kitchen spaces and vacuum/shampoo the floors.
- Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: Do you have outdoor space where you routinely address maintenance tasks like mowing, weeding, etc? If so, you need to handle these once more immediately before vacating.
- Repairs: If cosmetic damage has occurred within your rental home, take the steps necessary to resolve these issues. This includes patching nail and screw holes, replacing broken glass, and repainting if you've painted with unapproved colors.
Every tenant must pay a security deposit at the outset of the lease. This payment serves to protect against any damage that could occur during a tenant's stay.
After you return your keys, we will perform a final inspection to verify the condition of your property. If we identify any damage that needs to be repaired, we will deduct the associated expenses from your deposit.
The remainder, along with a detailed statement, will be returned within 60 days, as mandated by Florida law.
