Move-in Checklist

We are happy to welcome you to a HomeVault Property Management rental and we hope you will enjoy your stay with us.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Please note, your first month's rent, security deposit, and any other applicable fees are all due at your lease signing. If necessary, confirm the amount with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will provide all necessary information about your move-in, including the date and any inspection details, at the signing.


Be sure to place all utility accounts for your rental home in your name as quickly as possible. Failure to do this may result in outages and you will be responsible for all fees associated with restoring access.

Move-out Checklist

As you get ready to leave a HomeVault Property Management rental, keep the following important steps in mind.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

We ask all tenants to provide us with written notice of intent to vacate. This gives us time to begin marketing the home again and taking care of any administrative tasks associated with the moving process.

Property Condition

Your home needs to be returned to its original condition before you hand in the keys.

  • Rental Cleaning: Remove all personal belongings and trash from the rental. Carefully clean each room, paying special attention in the bathrooms and kitchen spaces.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you normally handle lawn care and landscaping for the property, be sure to take care of these tasks once more before moving out.
  • Repairs: If any cosmetic damage has occurred during your stay with us, take the steps necessary to address the problems. Patch nail and screw holes, repaint, and replace broken glass, if necessary.

Security Deposit

Your security deposit protects against any damage that could potentially occur during your stay. After you vacate the home, our management team will perform one final inspection.

If we identify any damage, we will schedule repair visits and deduct the expenses from your deposit. The remainder will be returned to you, along with an itemized statement, within 60 days, in accordance with Colorado law.
