Make Sure Your Account is in Good Standing
Before you transfer, you’ll want to be sure there isn’t a balance on your ledger. Please note that if you are transferring in the middle of your current lease, you will need to pay a transfer fee equal to one month’s rent.

Attend the Pre-Move Out Walk Through
For your convenience, we’ll schedule a pre-move out walk through in which one of our technicians will walk you through your home and make note of any blemishes that should be repair prior to your move. While your attendance is not required, we do encourage it so that you can maximize your security deposit refund.

Secure Your Dream Home
Once your transfer has been approved and you’ve found your new home, you’ll hear from your Application Coordinator to help finalize your move! You will want to pay the holding fee to secure the home before anyone else can do so. This fee is typically equal to one month’s rent. For your convenience, we also suggest reading through the Future Resident Guide as things may have changed since you first applied with us.

Review and Sign Your Lease and Transfer Agreement
Once your transfer has been approved, be sure to read through and sign your new Lease Agreement. You’ll also want to work with your Application Coordinator to schedule a move-in date and time.

Prepare to Move-Out
Our team will contact you to schedule a move-out date and time for your current home. You can expect to receive your security deposit within 30 days.

Pay Move-in Funds
Your new security deposit will be based off the initial credit history report that we ran when you first applied. These and any additional funds will need to be paid by certified funds at your local office or via the online Rent Café portal prior to when you move into your new home. Please note that your original security deposit will not transfer to your new home.
