Aloha! We are sorry to hear that you plan on moving out and hope that you had a wonderful experience renting a property from us. Here is a step by step process to help prepare for your move:
Step 1: Provide us with a formal notice to vacate
Step 2: Preparing your belongings by organizing them and packing them neatly
Step 3: Contact a HappyDoors property management team member to schedule a final walk-through
Step 4: Setup mail forwarding with the post office: we recommend starting 2 business days before you move
Step 5: Repair any damage that may have been caused to the property
Step 6: Hire a landscaper to perform any needed yard work
Step 7: Arrange for the carpets to be professionally cleaned, you will need to provide us with a receipt
Step 8: Make arrangements for a professional maid service to clean the property
Step 9: Contact the utility companies to stop/transfer services the day after you move-out
To help make your transition easier, HappyDoors Property Management has prepared a list of items that need to be taken care of before leaving; please note that all items should be taken care of before the final walkthrough. Should you need to hire someone for assistance, please contact our Honolulu office and we would be happy to refer you to one of our preferred vendors.
Rent: Your last month’s rent is still due on the 1st, we cannot use the security deposit towards last month’s rent. If you have signed up for an automatic draft from your checking account, this will be disabled when your notice to vacate is received after which you must pay rent either online through our website, mailing the payment to our office, or dropping it off in person.
Utilities: In order to evaluate the rental property during the final walk-through, the utilities must remain on in your name until the day after walk-through.
