Are you moving out of your apartment soon?

As a renter, you have the responsibility to vacate the premises in good condition.  Also, there is a couple hundred dollars of your money that would be awesome to get back.  Here are some tips to help you get the most of your money when you move out:

Check your lease agreement for your landlord’s deposit refund requirements.

Common Mistakes:

Losing your key or forgetting to return it. Landlords have the right to charge you for changing all the door locks. Sometimes, this could cost you a couple hundred bucks or your whole deposit!
Haphazard cleaning. Landlords can charge you absurd rates for re-cleaning.  Take the time to clean well because this will heavily influence your deposit.
