Renting a home in Wellington Florida can be a challenge with the lack of inventory, so I have created a series “Wellington Florida Rental Tips,” which will hopefully guide you through the process of renting a condo, villa, townhome or single family home in Wellington Florida. If you are looking to rent an apartment in Wellington some of these tips may not apply.
Rental Tip #9: Move in Day!
The day of moving into your new Wellington FL home has finally arrived!The first thing you will want to do is complete a walk through of the home and note any broken, missing or damaged items. This is necessary in order to protect your security deposit. After you have completed the walk through you will want to have your agent, the listing agent and landlord sign off on the final walk through inspection addendum if at all possible. Although it’s common for landlords not to be present the day of move in, so make sure to have their agent sign off acknowledging these items.
If you have any unpaid balance due to the landlord you will pay the remaining amount due on the day of move in, which has to be in certified funds, such as a cashiers check.
The last step will be getting the keys to the unit, clubhouse and/or mailbox and make sure you have all of the landlords contact information; cell phone number, home phone number and/or e-mail address.
