Move Out Inspections
It is your responsibility to schedule your move-out inspection. Asking for a same day inspection is impossible, as the property managers have a full schedule. You may be present, but please do not follow the manager through the house. We give you the privilege of completing your initial report without Management looking over your shoulder; please give us the same consideration. If you are not present, Management’s report is final.
Inspections are made from 9:00am-4:00pm Monday through Friday. Please do not plan on an inspection to be made on weekends or holidays. They take up to an hour, depending on the size of the home.
All utilities are to remain on for 72 hours after the inspection. This enables you to have utilities for any additional work if all is not acceptable the first time through.
Inspections are made only after you have completely vacated the unit, carpets have been professionally cleaned and dry (receipt required), yard is mowed, landscaping clean and trimmed, all trash is hauled off, and you are ready to turn over keys at the time of the inspection.
A room-by-room check will be made, including interior, exterior, grounds, appliances, windows, curtains, blinds, etc.
A re-inspection fee of $50.00 will be charged for each return trip that is required after the first appointment. If the Inspector arrives for the appointment and the house is not ready and/or the utilities are not on, the inspector will leave. You will be charged for all subsequent trips.
