Moving Checklists

Moving doesn't have to be stressful.

Moving into a new property can be a challenge, with plenty of different responsibilities on your shoulders. We've compiled helpful moving checklists to answer common questions we often hear from our tenants. If you're preparing for an upcoming moving, refer to the information below before getting in touch with us.

Of course, if you need any help, don't hesitate to contact our team: (209) 725-2110

Move-in Checklist

Congratulations on becoming a Red Brick Property Management tenant!

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first rent check and all applicable security deposits, including pet deposits, are due at the lease signing. Please confirm the amounts with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will provide all necessary move-in information and schedule the key exchange at the lease signing.

Utilities

As a Red Brick tenant, you must place all utility accounts in your name upon taking possession of the home. Failure to do so promptly may result in temporary outages and administrative fees.

Move-out Checklist

We're always sad to say goodbye to good tenants, but we wish you the very best moving forward. Please take care of the following before leaving your rental home.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

We kindly ask that you provide written confirmation of your intent to leave your rental property. Refer to your lease's end date. Remember, you are responsible for all rent for the duration of your lease.

Property Condition

Your home must be returned in good condition and all cleaning must be done before the keys are handed back.

  • Rental Cleaning: Remove all of your belongings from the rental home, in addition to all trash. Thoroughly mop, vacuum and sweep all floors. In the kitchen, sanitize food prep surfaces and appliances. Bathroom areas should also be thoroughly sanitized.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If your home has outdoor space, take care of any landscaping chores once more before leaving (mowing the lawn, trash disposal, etc.)
  • Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay, make arrangements for repairs. Burnt bulbs should be replaced, holes from nails and screws need to be patched, and broken glass should be replaced.

Security Deposit

Your security deposit serves as a safeguard against any damage that occurs during your stay. Please remember, you cannot use these funds to pay your final month's rent.

We will perform a final inspection after your departure. If any repairs are needed, we will schedule these and make deductions from your deposit. The remainder will be returned to you as quickly as possible.
