Move-in Checklist

As you prepare to move into an LVA apartment unit, please be sure to keep the following important keys in mind.

First Month’s Rent & Security Deposit

You will need to pay your first month’s rent and your security deposit at the time of your lease signing. If any other fees are due, these also need to be paid at that time. Confirm the total amounts with us in advance.

Move-in Date & Inspection

We will schedule your move-in date and provide additional information about the move-in inspection and key exchange at the lease signing.


You’ll need to place all utility accounts for your rental property in your name upon moving into the unit. Please review the utility contact information to locate the providers who service your home.

Move-out Checklist

We’re always sad when renters move on, but we hope you’re heading on to greener pastures. Please take care of these steps before you leave.

Notice of Intent to Vacate

You need to provide us with a 60 day written notice of your intent to vacate your Las Vegas rental. Please refer to your lease to determine your move out date. You can email us at: with your property address and unit number in the subject line.

Property Condition

Before you return the keys to us, you are responsible for bringing the rental property back to it’s original condition.

  • Rental Cleaning: Remove all of your possessions and belongings from the unit. Carefully clean every room in the home, taking the time to wash the walls and clean the floors (mop/vacuum/sweep). In the bathrooms and kitchen space, you will need to sanitize all hard surfaces, clean appliances inside and out, and wash all sinks.
  • Landscaping & Outdoor Areas: If you have outdoor space, be sure to address any maintenance responsibilities before you leave the home.
  • Repairs: If any damage occurred during your stay, take the necessary measures to rectify the problems. Patch holes left in the walls (even nail and screw holes), replace burnt light bulbs, and repaint if necessary. You must return the unit back to us in rent-ready condition.

Security Deposit

The security deposit you provide at the beginning of your lease serves to safeguard against damage that might occur during your stay. After you leave, we will conduct a final review of the home’s condition.

If we notice any damage that needs to be addressed, we will schedule repair visits and all costs for such visits will be deducted from the deposit. The remainder will be returned to you. Once you have done the walk through with an LVA manager you can email us at: with your property address and unit number in the subject line requesting your deposit back. We prefer to refund deposits quickly so please include your PayPal or Venmo username. You can also send us a Zelle payment request once we have determined what your exact refund will be. If we have to mail you a check, we can only do so using Fedex which will be at your expense.

Please note, the security deposit cannot be used to pay your final rent payment.
