Moving Checklists

Getting ready to move? Take a look at our checklists below.

Face it: making a big move can be a tricky thing. From putting everything in the right box to handling the nonstop paperwork that comes with changing residences, there are plenty of different responsibilities on your shoulders. We often get questions from tenants who are preparing to move into or out of one of our homes. These checklists have been compiled to give you answers to common questions.

If you still need help, don't hesitate to call us: 904-254-2766

Move-in Checklist

Congratulations on your acceptance into a Rental Guys property! Please read through the information below and keep the following in mind.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent check, security deposit, and all other owed fees must be paid at the time of your lease signing. If you have any questions, please confirm with our team in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Our team will set your move-in date at your lease signing and all inspection information will be provided at that time.


Utility accounts for your rental property should be placed in your name as quickly as possible after signing the lease. Take care of this immediately to avoid temporary outages.

Move-out Checklist

As you get ready to move out of your current rental home, you'll want to review the following:

Notice of Intent to Vacate

You need to provide written notice of your intent to leave your home. Take a look at your lease if you have any questions about the length of your tenancy.

Property Condition

Your home must be returned to us in the same condition you originally rented it. To avoid cleaning and repair fees, take care of these steps:

  • Rental Cleaning: Thoroughly clean the rental home, remove all of your belongings, and dispose of the trash. If necessary, wipe down your counters and walls and mop/sweep/vacuum all floors.
  • Outdoor Space: If you are normally responsible for outdoor maintenance tasks, including landscaping chores, take care of these once more before moving out.
  • Repairs: If any damage has occurred during your stay, take the necessary steps to resolve the issue. Replace burnt lightbulbs and any broken glass planes. If more substantial damage has occurred, please work with our managers to resolve the problem.

Security Deposit

The security deposit for your property will be returned to you as quickly as possible after you move out of your home. If any damage has occurred, we will schedule repair visits. Any costs for these visits will be deducted from the deposit before the remainder is returned to you.
