Moving Checklists

Helpful information for your move

Moving into a new home marks an exciting new season, but it does come with unique challenges and responsibilities. Whether you're a new tenant looking for some pointers or you're getting ready to leave your rental home, we've created the checklists below to answer the questions we hear from our tenants most frequently.

If you still have questions after reading through the details below, give us a call: (817) ­200-­7982

Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

You'll need to pay you first month's rent bill, your security deposit, and any administrative fees at the lease signing. Speak with a member of our management team before coming to the meeting to confirm the totals.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Our team will provide all move-in information, including details of your initial inspection, at your lease signing.


You must place all utility accounts for your rental home in your name. Do this as soon as you can after signing the lease. If you wait too long, you may lose access to your utilities. You will be responsible for any fees associated with restoring access. 

Remember, you are also responsible for keeping your utility accounts current. Failure to do so could put your lease in jeopardy. 

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

We hope you've enjoyed your stay at a Green Light Property Management home. As you prepare to move out, please provide us with written notification of your intent to vacate.

Property Condition

You must return your rental home to its original condition before you hand in the keys:

  • Rental Cleaning: Take the time to carefully clean each room in the property. All of your belongings and personal possessions should be removed. You also must wipe down hard surfaces, mop/vacuum the floors, and address any cosmetic damage (see below).
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: Does your home have outdoor space where you regularly take care of maintenance chores like lawn care? If so, please do these immediately before you vacate.
  • Repairs: Please patch all nail and screw holes, replace burnt light bulbs in your fixtures, and repaint any areas that were not previously approved by our team.

Security Deposit

The security deposit paid at the beginning of your lease protects against any damage you cause during your stay. Our team will perform a final inspection upon your departure; if we find anything amiss, we'll repair the problem and use the deposit to cover the related expenses. The remainder will be returned to you. 

Please remember, you cannot use the security deposit to pay your last month's rent.
