Notify Your Landlord Days Before Moving Out

Giving your landlord enough notice will make moving out much easier and hassle free. Some landlord or apartment complexes require written statement about your plans of not renewing your rent. Some apartments might charge you an extra fee if you fail to notify them ahead of time.  So to avoid any kind of trouble with your landlord, make sure that you notify them few days before your planned departure.

Change Your Address

If you already found a new place, make sure to point all of your important mails (bank statements, bills, etc.) to your new address. Change them all before completely leaving your apartment. Besides, you don’t want a total stranger (tenants of your old apartment) to take a peek of your financial statements, right?

Transfer or Shut Off All Services

Although there are apartments that handle the utility and services cancelation, there are some that doesn’t. So before leaving your apartment, make sure that you already canceled all the services under your account or name. If possible, you can just request for your account to be transferred to your new address.
