Moving Out

Tips for moving out of an apartment.

Moving out of an apartment is rarely as fun as moving in, but following these moving out tips will prevent it from becoming a nightmare.

When do I need to give my apartment notice if I plan to vacate?

If you rent month-to-month, notify your landlord in writing at least 30 days before your move. Leases usually include a clause about how much notice a landlord requires if you don't intend on renewing. If your lease doesn't specify, it might not be necessary, but it's a nice courtesy to give them at least 30 days of notice. They'll need that time to find a new occupant.

How can I avoid problems in getting back my security deposit?

Moving out of an apartment can be costly, so getting your security deposit back will help your budget. A security deposit may equate to one month's rent or more. As a rule, you should get it back within 30 days after you vacate. If you haven't received your deposit back after 30 days, contact your landlord and confirm that they have your forwarding address and are aware that you're owed a deposit.

A good relationship with your landlord works in your favor. It will help you get a timely return of your security deposit.

The landlord is not allowed to deduct for normal wear and tear, nor refuse to refund without a reason. Sometimes damage can occur when moving out. If you use a reputable mover, you won't have to worry. Your Atlas Agent, for example, carries insurance in the unlikely event your apartment is damaged in the moving process.
