Moving Checklists

Get the information you need for a successful move

Moving comes with a laundry list of responsibilities and tasks to handle. We want to make things as simple as possible for our tenants, which is why we've created the checklists below. Please read through the details on this page, and if you still have questions, simply let us know: 760-371-4282

Move-in Checklist

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent payment, security deposit, and any other unpaid fees must be taken care of at the lease signing. Without these funds, we cannot release the keys to the property.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will provide all information about your move-in, set the official date, and detail the first inspection with you at the lease signing.


Utility accounts for your rental property should be placed in your name as quickly as possible following the lease signing. Doing this promptly helps ensure that you won't lose access.

Move-out Checklist

Notice of Intent to Vacate

  • A written 30-day Notice to Vacate must be submitted to the management company at least 30 calendar days before vacating the property. You may submit this from your online tenant portal or via email.
  • Tenants who do not provide sufficient notice to vacate or deliberately break their lease,
    are responsible for the remaining rental period. Please consult your lease agreement for
    additional information.
  • You may ask for a pre-move out inspection to be done 48 hours before you vacate. Please refer to your lease agreement for more information.

Security Deposit Refund

Once you have completed moving out, Wellspring Property Management will complete any repairs and cleaning not noted on your initial walkthrough at beginning of occupancy and refund your remaining security deposit. WE CANNOT REFUND YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT ON THE SAME DAY YOU MOVE OUT. We must ensure all repairs and cleaning were completed; utilities have been transferred, etc.

Please make sure we have your forwarding address to send your security deposit refund. If we don’t have your address your refund will go to the last known address we have on file.

If the property was damaged or past due rent is owed in excess of your security deposit, you are responsible for the remaining balance. If you refuse to pay in full, we will take legal action and a judgment will be filed for the outstanding amount. Please refer to your rental agreement for more information.

Cleaning Checklist

We understand moving can be a stressful and busy time. However, there are some important items to consider when moving, which if done properly will save you time and money in the long run. There is a level of cleaning that is required to return the unit in the condition you received it. If you have any questions, please contact your property manager and be sure to reference the Move In/ Move Out checklist you received upon move in.


Reminder: Please remember the cleaning checklist provided with your rental agreement. This
will be what we reference when noting damages at move out. Note that carpets need to be
professionally cleaned and a copy of the receipt must be provided, as well as any other receipts
for professional services such as chimney sweeping.

Disclaimer: Management has the final authority to determine how much of the deposit shall be
refunded in accordance with the conditions set forth in the Rental Agreement.
