Moving Checklists

Make sure your move takes place as seamlessly as possible

We know moving is a stressful process

We've created the moving checklists on this page to answer some of the common questions we hear from our tenants. If after reading through the information on this page, you still have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our property management team: (360) 628-0000

Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent check and your security deposit are both due at the lease signing. Please confirm these amounts with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

Your move-in date will be set at the lease signing. We will also provide all relevant information about your initial inspection and key exchange at this time.


As a tenant in a Teck Property Management home, you are responsible for placing all utility accounts for your rental in your name. These accounts should be kept current throughout the duration of your lease.

Please take care of contacting the utility providers immediately upon signing your lease. Failure to promptly set up accounts may cause you to lose access to utilities in the home. You will be liable for any fees associated with restoring such access.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Planning to move out of your rental home? We ask all of our tenants to provide us with written notice of intent to vacate the premises. Refer to your lease to determine your legal move-out date.

Property Condition

Before you hand in the keys for your rental home, please take the necessary steps to bring the property back to rent-ready condition. This includes the following:

Rental Cleaning: Every unit in your home should be carefully cleaned, with your belongings removed and any garbaged properly thrown out. Make sure to pay careful attention in the kitchen and bathroom spaces, where you'll need to sanitize all hard surfaces. Floors throughout the rental should be vacuumed/mopped before you move out.
Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you typically handle landscaping chores, including mowing the lawn, please take care of these once more before you move out.
Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay with us, make every effort to repair these damages. This includes patching nail and screw holes, repainting damaged walls, and replacing burnt lightbulbs.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit to you after we have the chance to perform a final inspection of the rental. If we identify any new damages that need to be repaired, we will make the necessary arrangements and deduct the expenses from your deposit.

Please note, your security deposit cannot be used for your final rent bill.

If you don't pay your final bill promptly, the delinquency will be reported to the relevant credit bureaus and we will initiate collections efforts.
