Make a successful move with our team on your side

We're always excited to welcome new clients to the Bottom Line Property Management family. We've created the checklists on this page to help ensure you don't overlook any of the responsibilities on your plate. Please review the information below and if you still have questions, give us a call: (704­) 379-­7492

Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent payment, security deposit, and any other fees associated with the application and move-in process must be paid before you take possession of the keys.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your official move-in and provide all information about your first inspection at the lease signing.


You are responsible for putting utility accounts in your name immediately after signing the lease. Take care of this promptly to avoid losing access. You must also keep accounts current throughout the duration of your stay.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

Are you planning to move out of your rental home? Check the terms of your lease to determine your legal move-out date. We ask that you also provide us with written notice of your intent to leave the property at least 30 days in advance.

Property Condition

Before you move out of your rental home, you need to ensure the property is in good condition. Please take care of the following:

  • Rental Cleaning: Your rental home needs to be completely cleaned, with all of your possessions and garbage removed from the property.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you have outdoor space where you generally take care of landscaping chores, please do these once more before vacating the property.
  • Repairs: If any damage occurred in your rental home during your stay, please make the necessary repairs. For larger repairs, contact our team so we can find an amicable solution.

Security Deposit

We will return your security deposit after you vacate the home. Please remember, the security deposit serves as protection against any damage that happens during your stay. If we identify any damage after your departure, we will make repairs and deduct the expenses from the deposit amount.
