2023 Move-Out Information

2023 Move-Out Information
April 13, 2023 -

It’s almost time to start packing again as the school year comes to an end, your lease expires May 19, 2023. It has been a pleasure serving you this year and we look forward to making your move-out as smooth as possible! For your convenience, we start conducting move out inspections beginning May 15, 2023. However, you are welcome to schedule a time for May 19, 2023 (last day of your lease). To better serve our residents, we can even extend the move-out inspection day through May 22, 2023 for apartments which have graduates participating in commencement ceremonies on Sunday or for apartments which have international students who have confirmed with the CIE they will be traveling to the airport via the charter that Monday morning. Remember, personalized move-out appointments are scheduled on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please schedule your inspection soon.  

Tuesday April 25th & Wednesday April 26th: Schedule your Move-Out Inspection in-person in the Woods Leasing Office from 9:00 AM - NOON. Please designate ONE roommate to visit us on these days to schedule the apartment move-out inspection appointment.

Steps to take…

  1. Communicate with roommates and decide who will be last to move-out.
  2. Select a day/time that works best for everyone.
  3. Schedule a Move-Out Inspection time in our office between April 25-26th.

During the inspection date/time keys are collected, and you are presented with inspection results. No residents need to be physically present at inspection, but it’s always recommended.

*Your lease ends Friday May 19th

**Move-out inspections take 30 minutes and all personal belongings must be removed from the apartment prior to this appointment time unless you have re-signed for the Summer.

April 27, 2023: The Woods will assign a time for any apartments which did not schedule a move-out inspection.

How do I prepare my apartment for inspection? Below you will find a move-out preparation checklist with instructions, what our inspectors will look for, costs for damages, cleaning etc.  This year more than ever please make sure you follow the instructions on this checklist as pricing from our vendors (specifically cleaning and painting) have increased due to recent inflation and lack of current labor force.

Did you sign a Summer lease to stay in the same apartment?  Unless ALL current occupants are staying in the same apartment for the Summer, we still need to perform a move-out inspection with the roommates who are moving out. The last roommate to move out should schedule an appointment in-office on April 25th or April 26th to set-up a move-out inspection.

Are you a current Woods resident and moving to another Woods Apartment with a Summer lease? You will stay in your current apartment until your new apartment is ready for you. The Woods will contact you when your apartment is ready, and you will have 24 hours to transfer all of your personal items to the new apartment. This will be between May 23rd – June 3rd. A move-out inspection of your current apartment will be scheduled 24 hours after you collect keys for your new apartment. Please have everything packed/organized to make your move as easy as possible.
