  • UTILITIES: Have the utilities taken out of your name and put into the name of Jacob Grant PM effective the day after your move out date. Unless this is an early termination then you are responsible until the unit is re-rented.

Security Deposit Return

Getting your security deposit refund begins at the beginning of your lease. All terms of the lease must be followed including giving at least 30 days of written notice. Here are some more helpful hints:

  • Give yourself plenty of time to move.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to clean. Moving is stressful. Thought of hiring someone to clean when you are moved? Hiring and organizing your own housekeeper can save you $$$.
  • Read your lease to remind you of all hourly cleaning and repair rates.
