GEM Realty’s Move Out Checklist

Please use the form below to submit your move out to our office.

Our policy, as indicated within your lease, is that you are required to give written notice to vacate. In order to determine how many days’ notice you must give (typically either 30 or 60), please refer to your lease agreement in your online portal.

Your account will be charged all rent through the end of the lease term OR for the indicated number of days from the date that the notice was received in accordance with your Lease Agreement.

If the notice period ends after the lease termination date, your account will be charged a prorated rent amount for the days you remained in possession of the keys that month. Please pay the last month’s rent in full and on time. Your security deposit cannot be used for rent at any time during the lease.

Move out procedures:

Any unpaid debt, repairs, repainting, cleaning/ trash removal, or any other expense associated with returning the condition of your home to the condition upon which you moved in will be deducted from your security deposit. Your security deposit will be mailed to the forwarding address you provide in accordance with the Virginia Residential Landlord-Tenant Act. It is very important to keep your home looking its best for prospective tenants. We may also place an GEM Realty sign in the front yard before you have completed your moved out. We will NOT send people by to see the inside of your home without previously scheduling any showings with you in a timely manner. We will inform prospective tenants that the home is only available for move-in after the date you have provided on your notice to vacate and can only be viewed if arranged with you. Again, we will NOT send people over to knock on your door and attempt to see the inside of your home without your permission.

We are sad to see you go but we wish you luck during your move!
