Starting up utilities

Please refer to your rental agreement for details about your utilities. Telephone and television reception are tenant responsibility. This list is provided for your convenience only. It does not represent any services provided by the landlord.

Due to City Classification of many of the houses, some are zoned duplexes, triplexes, and rooming houses, etc. They therefore have multiple gas and electric, and water accounts. It is the tenant's responsibility to have all these accounts put in their name with a starting date of August 1.

At the start of the lease term:

August rent check needs to be received on or before August 1 in order for you to pick up keys to the property. Exterior keys are provided. Interior keys and locks are the tenant's responsibility. No window air conditioners are provided or repaired by landlord.

No early entrance into units is allowed unless previous arrangements have been made.

If you are not moving in on August 1, please (a) make arrangements to have rent paid on or before August 1 (late fees still apply even if you have not moved in); (b) establish utilities in your name; and (c) make contact with the office in writing that you will be arriving late and what arrangements you would like to make to pick up keys.

When you are preparing to move out:

Security Deposit: Your security deposit will not be used for your last month's rent. If you do not submit rent for the last month, legal proceedings will be taken to collect the rent. Please pay rent as you normally do.

It is expected that the dwelling will be left in a condition suitable for a new tenant to move into. Any cleaning, repairs that are in excess of "normal wear and tear," personal belongings left behind, possession of unit/keys past deadline, etc., are costs that will be charged back to you.

Cleaning tips:

Here are some suggestions for cleaning and checking out of your unit that you may be required to do in order to get 100% of your security deposit back. Bear in mind that there may be other things that you may be required to do which may not appear on this list.

- You must have the utilities in your name when you pick up keys.

- Utilities may be disconnected as soon as August 2 if you have not done so.
