Move-in Checklist

Welcome to your brand new rental home! Please keep the following in mind as you prepare for move-in day.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Both your first month's rent check and your security deposit are payable at the lease signing, along with any additional fees or deposits required. Please be sure to confirm the final amounts with a member of our team in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Your move-in date will be officially set at the lease signing. We will also provide inspection and move-in information at this time.


Please remember, as a TouchPoint Property Management tenant, you ar required to place all utility accounts in your name. Please be sure to do this immediately upon taking residency to avoid administrative fees and temporary outages.

Move-out Checklist

We're always sad to see our tenants move out, but we want to make the process as seamless as possible. Be sure to take the following important keys into account.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

We'll need to receive written notice of your intent to vacate your rental home. Refer to the terms and conditions outlined in your lease for more information.

Property Condition

All rental homes must be returned to their original condition. Remember the following:

  • Rental Cleaning: Thoroughly clean your property before returning your keys. You'll need to remove all personal belongings from the rental home. Mop and vacuum/sweep all floors, scrub down all hard surfaces, and replace burnt lightbulbs throughout the property.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you live in a rental home with outdoor space, take care of all chores such as mowing the lawn, gathering leaves, and disposing of garbage.
  • Repairs: Any damage that occurred during your stay should be repaired. This includes nail and screw holes, broken glass, and other small damages. If you've painted, you'll also need to return the walls to their original color.

Security Deposit

We will perform a final inspection of your home after you move out. Any damage identified during this visit will need to be repaired, and expenses for these repairs will be deducted from the security deposit. The remainder of your deposit will be returned to you as quickly as possible.
