Feeling stressed about your move?

We know moving comes with a laundry list of different responsibilities; we've created these checklists to give you a simple reference point for the responsibilities on your plate. If after reading through the information below you still have questions, please call us: (410) 332-4432

Move-in Checklist

Congratulations on your acceptance into an UTZ Property Management home! We hope you'll have a great stay with us. Start your tenancy off right by following the details below.

First Month's Rent & Security Deposit

Your first month's rent check, security deposit, and any other fees owed should be paid at the lease signing. Be sure to confirm the amount in advance to avoid any problems.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your official move-in date and provide any necessary inspection information at the lease signing.


Please quickly place all of your rental home's utility accounts in your name. If you fail to do this after moving into your rental, you will lose access to utility service. You will be responsible for any fees associated with restoring access to the property.


Move-out Checklist

We're always sad to say goodbye to great tenants, but we hope you had a great time staying with us. Don't leave a single stone unturned; instead, be sure to take care of the following:

Notice of Intent to Vacate

All tenants need to provide written notice of intent to vacate. Refer to the terms and conditions of your lease to determine your agreed move-out date.

Property Condition

Your rental needs to be returned to its original condition before you turn in the keys. This includes:

  • Rental Cleaning: Properly clean your rental property, taking the time to sweep/mop all floors, wipe down hard surfaces, and sanitize the bathrooms. You also need to remove your belongings from the home.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you have an outdoor space where you generally mow, weed, please take care of these maintenance tasks once more before moving.
  • Repairs: If damage occurred during your stay, you'll need to repair these issues or find an amicable solution with our team.

Security Deposit

The security deposit serves as a protection against any damage that could occur during your stay. After you move, we'll conduct our final inspection to check for damage. If we identify any damage, we'll schedule repairs and deduct the costs for these repairs from the deposit.

We will return the deposit within 45 days, in accordance with Maryland tenant-landlord law.
