Submit your dispute in writing within 60 days from the date that you vacated the dwelling unit.
We will send you a letter notifying you of a balance due and detailed documentation regarding any charges. Payment will be expected promptly to prevent further action.
We will immediately perform a move-out inspection to assess the condition of your apartment, comparing it to the inspection report form you completed when you moved in. We will provide you with an itemized list of damages within 30 days, sent to your new address. We will return your security deposit and required interest, if any, minus unpaid rent and expenses for damages, within 45 days.
Security deposits cannot be used as payment for last month’s rent, unless written authorization from our office has been obtained.
Any outstanding charges will be turned over to a collection agency for processing and will become part of your permanent credit history.
Turn in your keys on or before noon the day your lease expires to the location or representative specified by Winnemac Properties. If keys are not turned in, you will be charged $250.00 for lock replacement.
You are contractually obligated to vacate your unit by noon on the last day of your lease. If you have not vacated the premises and returned all keys by this time, you may be charged double the monthly rent for the period that you retain possession of the apartment following the end of your lease.
Make sure there is no damage to your apartment beyond normal wear and tear. The entirety of your apartment should be restored to the condition in which you rented it – including paint color and appliances. Clean your entire apartment, including the range top, oven, refrigerator, bathroom, closets and cabinets. Floors must be vacuumed or swept. All debris and unwanted materials should be placed in the proper trash containers within designated areas.
If you need to make changes to your move-out date, they must be completed in writing and agreed upon by both parties. We will make all efforts to accommodate you. However, in the event that we have pre-leased your apartment, we will be unable to honor this change.
You must give 60 days’ notice to vacate in writing to Winnemac Properties prior to the end of your lease or if you are on a month-to-month lease, 60 days prior to when you plan to move. All leases terminate at the last day of the month, so if you notify us on the 15th day of the month, for example, your lease would terminate 60 days from the next month end and not from the 15th.
