Moving Tips: Make sure apartment is set before leaving

Make sure everything is taken from your apartment before leaving.

Make sure everything is taken from your apartment before leaving.

While you may be excited to finish packing and give your items to your moving company, it is necessary to take care of some precautions before leaving for your new home or apartment.

It is also important that you take anything from any cabinets and closets that are yours. It can be easy to forget about pots and pans as well as towels, vacuums and other important items. However, if you take a quick scan of all areas that aren't completely visible, you may be able to find some things that need to be taken. Forgetting some of these items could cost you extra money you didn't plan on paying for when arriving at your new residence.

One of the most important items to take care of when getting ready to leave is to ensure that you have all of your important information packed away. This could include passwords or financial documents that could be in various parts of your home. You may have hidden some items away in inconspicuous places, but you will need to double-check to make sure that everything has been taken.

Take one last scan of the apartment for damage. Be mindful that any damage could take away from your security deposit that you will be receiving at some point after you move out. If there were issues there beforehand, take photos so that you can inform your landlord again that the issue wasn't caused by you and that it is no worse than when you arrived.

When you do leave your apartment, be sure to bring your keys to your landlord. This can be a pain if they did not inform you to leave the keys somewhere, but it will ensure that you receive your security deposit more quickly. It is also a good way to be courteous to your landlord.

Don't leave anything behind for the next tenant to clean up. This means you should make the refrigerator is clean, as well as anything in it. In addition, don't leave items that belong to you unless you informed your landlord or the future tenant. If you don't take your furniture, it will be the problem of your landlord and the new tenant.
