Move-in Checklist

Before you make a Cision Realty property your home, please make certain you understand the following.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent check, security deposit, and any applicable fees or additional deposits are due at the signing. Please confirm the amounts with us in advance, as we cannot turn over the keys without the full funds.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We'll provide all relevant information about your move-in at the lease signing.

Utilities

Utility accounts for the rental property need to be placed in your name as quickly as possible after taking occupancy. This will ensure you don't lose utilities or encounter administrative fees for restoring access.

Move-out Checklist

We hope you've had a great stay in your Cision Realty home. Please take care of the steps below as you prepare to move out.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

You'll need to provide our team with written notice of your intent to vacate the rental property. Your lease outlines the move-out date. You will be responsible for rent through that date, even if you choose to vacate early.

Property Condition

Your home must remain in good condition throughout the duration of your lease.

  • Rental Cleaning: Before you move out, thoroughly clean your rental home and remove all of your personal belongings. You'll need to deep clean the bathroom and kitchen, and you may need to have the floors professionally serviced. Please speak to our team for cleaner recommendations.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your home has outdoor space where you regularly address maintenance chores, take care of these responsibilities once more before moving out.
  • Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay with us, take the necessary measures to repair these damages. This includes cosmetic issues like nail and screw holes or broken glass.

Security Deposit

The security deposit you pay at the outset of your lease serves as a safeguard against any damage that could occur during your stay. When you move out, we will conduct a final inspection to identify any problems.

If repair visits are necessary, we will schedule these and use your deposit to pay the associated fees.

The remainder of your deposit will be returned to you with an itemized statement.

Please note: You cannot use your deposit to pay your final month's rent. Any failure to pay rent bills will result in collections action.
