Move-in Checklist

We hope you're excited about moving into a Rincon Property Management home. Please keep the information below in mind as you prepare to move in.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

You'll need to pay the first month's rent for your property, along with the security deposit and any other fees at the lease signing. Speak to a member of our team beforehand to confirm the amounts due.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your move-in date and provide any necessary inspection information at the signing.


The utility accounts for your rental property need to be placed in your name immediately after the lease signing. Take care of this quickly to avoid any unnecessary fees or temporary outages.

Move-out Checklist

As you prepare to move out of your rental home, please keep the following in mind:

Notice of Intent to Vacate

All tenants are asked to provide written notice of intent to vacate before leaving. This gives our team adequate time to begin preparing for a new renter. Refer to the terms of your lease to determine the agreed upon move-out date.

Property Condition

  • Rental Cleaning: Please return your property to its original rental condition before handing in the keys. You'll need to remove all of your belongings from the unit, professionally clean the floors, and wipe down all hard surfaces.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you have outdoor space where you take care of routine landscaping chores, do these once more before you move out.
  • Repairs: If any cosmetic damage has occurred in your rental home, take the necessary steps to address this before vacating.

Security Deposit

Your security deposit serves as protection against any damage that could occur during your stay. The best way to ensure the full deposit is returned to is to make certain any damage is addressed before you move out.

If we do identify damage after your departure, we will make the repairs and charge you for all expenses associated with the work. The deductions will be made from your deposit.

The remainder will be returned to you as quickly as possible, along with an itemized invoice with the deductions detailed.
