SECURING THE PROPERTY FOR MOVE IN - Pay Security Deposit within 24 hours of Application being approved
You will receive a text or email with a link to create your Resident Portal to pay your deposit.
If you have not received an invite to create your online portal, you may request one by clicking here: Pay Application Deposit
Your security deposit is only refundable on a case by case basis. Paying the security deposit to the property manager implies you are willing to rent the home in good faith and allows us to remove the home from the market and secure the property for your scheduled move in date.
START OF LEASE AGREEMENT - Rental property will not be held vacant for more than two (2) weeks, unless approved by Liberty Management, Inc.
Residents moving in before the 20th of the month pay prorated rent for that month.
Residents moving in on the 20th or after the 20th will need to pay the prorated rent and next month's rent at move-in.
Thereafter, rent is due on the 1st of each month and late by the 4th of the month.
LEASE SIGNING - You will receive an email with your lease agreement where you will be able to sign the lease using an electronic signature.
Review the Leasing Video prior to signing the lease by clicking the tile located in the resources above.
After you have signed the lease agreement, and we have signed your lease agreement both parties will receive a signed copy.
Once you pay your security deposit failure to sign a lease by your residency start date will result in the cancellation of the application, forfeiture of the application fee(s), and a $250 Cancellation Fee.
A charge for each day the property was off the market will be taken from the security deposit to compensate the homeowner. The charge will be assessed by dividing the total monthly rent by 30 days.
MOVE IN CONDITION REPORT - Your move in condition report must be completed and submitted to Liberty Management within 7 calendar days of the lease commencement date.
You may complete your move in condition report via MyWalkThru app. Please check your email or text messages for the invitation to download this app where you can take photos, make notes, and electronically submit this report straight from your mobile device.
The move in condition report is NOT a repair request. Any repair requests must be submitted separately and in writing according to your lease. Placing a work order via your Tenant Portal is the most efficient method.
UTILITIES SETUP - Please ensure your power, gas, water, garbage collection, etc. have been connected into your name by the start date of your lease agreement. This will ensure you do not have any disruption of utility services when you move in.
