Moving Out of Your Flat

Moving Out of Your Flat

Moving out of your flat:

 

Now that the academic year has come to an end many of you will be leaving our properties to go home for the summer or maybe, now that you have graduated, you are off to travel the world. Either way, we will miss you. But before you go, there’s a few things you need to do so we thought we’d put all the important information in one place.

Tell everyone

Once you have given us notice, it’s time to let everyone else involved know too. For example, you should give notice to your utility companies so that they stop billing you and make sure to cancel your telephone and television subscriptions if you have any. You may also want to consider having your post forwarded to your new address to avoid missing anything important!

Plan your packing

To those of you moving further afield, you may want to consider planning your packing ahead of time. Don’t leave it till the last day as you may come to realise after you’ve left that you forgot to check that last set of drawers and have left something important behind. This is particularly important if you are living with others as you may need to decide what’s going to happen to the TV you all chipped in for.

Protect your deposit

In order to get your deposit back in full, you will need to ensure the property is left in the same condition as when you moved in. If you have given us your notice, we will be sending you over a cleaning guide to help you ensure that you get back every penny of that deposit as well as a list of contractors who will be able to help. After an inspection of the property we will notify the deposit scheme provider to release your deposit. Much like your packing, leaving the cleaning till the last minute is not a good idea, also, if you are living with others be sure to delegate tasks before everyone leaves to help share the responsibilities.

 

Good luck moving out of your flat - we hope that our tips help you make the process as smooth as possible!
