Move Out Guidelines

Requirements for cleaning Homes or Apartments for Move Out Inspection

You must schedule your move out inspection in person at our office.  Please schedule this in advance (1 to 2 weeks), because inspection dates and times get booked quickly.  You may be held liable for rent if the inspection cannot be performed by the move out date given on your notice because an appointment was not made in advance. 

Inspections are performed 9AM to 3:45PM on weekdays only.  All personal property must be removed for this inspection and keys will be surrendered to the inspector at the time of the inspection.  Failure to be ready at set time, will result in a reinspection fee and the appointment will be rescheduled.  The air conditioner (in Summer) or heater (in Winter) must be on and running for at least 1 hour prior to your scheduled inspection. Failure to comply will result in rescheduling the inspection. A re-inspection fee and possible rent charges will also be due. We appreciate your compliance with this matter. It is for the health and convenience of our inspection staff.

REQUIREMENTS:

City issued trash receptacles  must be empty, clean and inside garage or at side of building, regardless if trash service continues beyond your inspection date. Bulk trash left at property will result in removal fee.

Utilities (Electric, water, and gas) must be on at the inspection and must remain on for Five (5) business days following the inspection. Failure to do so will result in a charge to have utilities turned on and a reinspection fee to reschedule the appointment.  

Yard The whole yard must be freshly mowed, edged and trimmed not earlier than 1 day prior to the move out inspection. Bushes and trees must be trimmed.  Leaves must be removed from gutters.  Pools/hot tubs must be clean and ready for use.

Cleaning  The whole house/apartment from TOP TO BOTTOM must be cleaned and disinfected, including appliances, cabinets, garages, storage rooms, ceilings, floors, walls, windows, etc., must be free of dirt, grime, food stains, marks, hair, smudges, fireplace ashes, debris, dust, soap scum, etc.

Carpet Cleaning Carpets must be professionally cleaned.  A receipt must be provided to the inspector or it will be scheduled and performed by Hunter Rentals at the tenant's expense. If carpets do not appear to be cleaned satisfactorily, at our discretion, re-cleaning may be required at the tenant's expense. Providing a receipt does not guarantee a passed carpet cleaning at the move out inspection. 

Note: Living conditions affect your cleaning abilities.  Allow adequate time to clean your home. 8 hours is not nearly enough time to thoroughly clean a home for inspection.  Carpets may require a second cleaning to remove dirt. Pet hair, stains, or odor will result in an additional charge, as they are not considered normal cleaning. 

Other Stove drip pans and filter must be replaced.

All light bulbs must be installed and working

All doorstops must be serviceable.

Blinds must not have bent slats.

A/C filter must be replaced with a new filter.

Nails, hooks, decals, and screws must be removed from walls.

A few missed cleaning items will result in a a partial cleaning charge. The inspector does not assess charges for damages or cleaning. All prices are subject to change without notice.

You may choose to prepay for cleaning prior to vacating. The charges listed below are for NORMAL cleanings only and include sales tax.  Excessively dirty or larger homes will require an additional charge at our discretion. Pet hair and odor removal treatment will result in additional charges.

Advance payment is required for all cleaning. If any cleaning charges are deducted from security deposit, a fee of $50 will be assessed in addition to cleaning charges. If you are transferring from another property through Hunter Rentals, you will be required to prepay for cleaning with no exception.
