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.
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.
