Before you move out of your Houston Montrose apartment home there are a few things you will want to do before you turn your keys back into the apartment office or manager. Remember you probably put down a deposit before you moved in or if you did not you still may be responsible for any damages that were incurred while you occupied the premises.
Is Your Apartment Home Clean
Although you won’t be directly responsible for any items there have undergone normal “wear” and “tear”, you should make every effort to leave your apartment home in the shape it was in when you moved in. That means cleaning out the refrigerator, mopping the floors, vacuuming the carpets, and anything else that need to be done in order to bring the apartment home back up to its current shape.
We recommend getting the name of a cleaning service that the apartment communities use to clean the apartment homes. Its not too expensive and you can be sure that you won’t be charged a cleaning fee.
What if you damaged something.
If you stained your carpet in your Houston Montrose apartments or you accidentally damaged a window or damaged your apartment home in some other way, expect the apartment community to deduct these fees from your deposit. You may want to discuss with the maintenance crew what can be repaired (for free), and what most likely will incur a fee.
If you were able to make friends with the maintenance manager you may be able to dodge certain fees that normally would be accessed.
Leave a Forwarding Address
Make sure you leave your forwarding address so the apartment community can mail you your deposit. You should receive it within 30 days by Texas law after your lease agreement has terminated.
If you were accessed damages you will receive an itemized list of what was subtracted and why.
