Please review this checklist when you’re preparing to move out of your rental home. It addresses your responsibilities and includes tips for helping your move go smoothly.

Do not shut off utilities. If you are vacating before your lease ends, you are still responsible for the property until your lease ends. This includes utilities, lawn care and snow removal (if applicable). Any damage resulting from unauthorized utility shutoff will be your responsibility.

Utility transfer. (If applicable) Contact all applicable utility companies (e.g., gas, electric) to transfer service to your new address and arrange for a final meter reading if necessary. Remember: Utility service must remain in your name through the end of your lease even if you are vacating early. Do not shut off utilities.

Personal items. Please remove all personal items.

Trash. Please remove all trash. You are responsible for the removal of any large items that don’t fit in the trash container. If trash service is your responsibility, please make arrangements for final pickup and bin removal.

Cleaning. Please leave the property in the same condition as when you moved in. 

Refrigerator. Please leave the refrigerator on the lowest setting. Do not turn it off.

Thermostat. During cooler weather (October-April), please set the thermostat at 65degrees. During warmer weather (May-September), please turn the thermostat off.

Windows and doors. Please close all windows and lock all doors the day you move out.

Keys and garage remotes. Please return all keys and garage remotes to our office the day you move out. Do not leave these items in the residence. There will be a charge if these items are not returned.

Inspection. Your residence will be inspected shortly after you move out. 

Change address. Remember to submit your new address to the U.S. Postal Service.

Provide new address to Silvernail Realty. Please provide your forwarding address to Silvernail Realty within four days of moving out, so we can return your security deposit and/or damage report.

Security deposit. Assuming we have your new address, we will return your security deposit and/or damage report within 30 days after you move out. The check for any refund of your security deposit will be paid to the order of the "head" tenant on the lease, unless all parties stipulate otherwise (in writing) before your move-out date.

We are sorry to see you go and wish you happiness in your new home. If you have any questions, please contact Silvernail Realty at 231-796-6329. Thank you!

It's almost time start your new lease with us and we would like to welcome you with a few friendly reminders for a smooth start.

Weekends. If you will be arriving on a weekend, please make sure to call ahead to schedule an appointment. We are NOT open on the weekends.

1st Month's Rent. When you check in, you will need to pay your pro-rated portion of your 1st month's rent for your new home that you are moving into. Please give our office a call if you need the pro-rated amount. 

Making A Payment. We accept Visa/MasterCard at our office or via phone. Any checks or money orders should be made out to "Glatz Management" and have your name and apartment number on it. This will expedite bookkeeping and insure that you get proper credit for what you have paid. 

PLEASE NOTE: Michigan law provides the receiver of a bad check to collect double the amount of the check from the maker. 

Utilities. If you are responsible for paying for your own utilities, you should decide between you and your roommates who will be putting the utility bills into their name. Call the company to make arrangements BEFORE your lease begin date. You will need to provide us with a confirmation number for the electric and gas to prove that they have been put into someone's name. 

Electric - Consumers Energy 1-800-477-5050

Gas - DTE Energy 1-800-477-4747

Cable TV/Internet - Charter Communications 1-888-438-2427

Water, Sewer, Trash - (Contact our office regarding deposit to the city) 

Inventory Check-In Sheet. You will be given your keys along with an inventory check-in sheet. This sheet needs to be completed by you within 3 days of your move-in date. Please be as detailed as possible. 

Checking In Past Start Date. If you are not going to be checking in on your move-in date, you will need to send in your 1st months pro-rated rent. 

Renter's Insurance. It is highly suggested that you obtain renters insurance. It can help you protect your stuff if something bad happens to it or your rental..

We look forward to having a great year together and wish you happiness in your new home. If you have any questions, please contact Silvernail Realty at 231-796-6329. Thank you!
