Though moving from a rented apartment, house, or condominium is very similar to moving from an owned one, there are some special considerations to remember. First of all most renters must leave the home very clean and damage-free in order to get their full security deposit back. This includes removing any stains in the carpet and filling in all nail holes on the wall. In addition, permanent appliances such as refrigerators, microwaves, and washing machines should be left in clean and working order. Make sure to look over the specifics of your renter's contract before moving out, so you can be careful to meet all the requirements. When you do move out, make notes of the condition in which you leave the apartment, and take pictures if possible. These can be useful if any dispute later arises over your security deposit. Finally, if you are responsible for utilities, make prior arrangements to have them shut off, and on moving day record all utility meter readings. Contact a local moving company for more information on moving from an apartment or condo.
