Moving Out of Faculty and Staff Housing
Once you have given notice of intent to vacate your rental unit will undergo a pre-vacate inspection within the next 10 working days. Housing Department Operations and or Grounds and Building Maintenance staff will perform this inspection in an effort to assess and plan ahead for the maintenance and housing work that will need to be performed in your rental unit after you leave. You do not need to be present for this inspection. The inspector(s) will leave an entry notice to confirm that the inspection has been completed. If you have pets or you require an appointment for this inspection please contact your superintendent who will coordinate the appointment with an inspector.
After you vacate your apartment Housing Department staff will inspect your apartment for cleanliness and condition.
The General Rule
Your apartment should be returned to the condition you found it when you moved in. You will not be charged for normal wear and tear, or holes in the wall the size of a pencil or smaller.
To Avoid Charges
The "Before You Go" Check List specifies your responsibility for cleaning your apartment and removing your property.
Charges for Repairs
Tenants will be charged if basic cleanliness and condition criteria are not met. Fees charged to tenants will be deducted from your security deposit. The most commonly charged items are:
- Cleaning fees for dirty ovens and stoves.
- Removal of abandoned items, including items left in garages and storage areas.
- Repairs of holes in walls, ceilings and floors.
- Reinstallation of windows which have been removed to install air conditioners.
- Cleaning fees for excessively dirty bathroom, floors and walls.
- Lock changes required because keys were not returned. (all keys that were signed out during your tenancy must be returned when you vacate your apartment.)
