Moving Out


Moving is an exhausting process, from finding a new place to live to hiring reputable movers to boxing your belongings and unpacking. So it’s easy to understand why many renters tend to overlook important details before they they move out.

Cleaning

What are your obligations as a tenant? Do you have to leave it as spotless as it was when you moved in? (That question assumes that your unit was adequately cleaned, of course.) The answer is yes.

Err on the side of “too clean” in order to prevent your deposit from being reduced. Click Here for the Check Out Procedures

Carpet

All tenants of PPM Realty are required to have the carpets professionally cleaned by the truck mounted steam extraction method. We have partnered up with Kemper Carpet Care to get you the best rate and make the cleaning of the carpets go as easy as possible. Kemper’s number is 412-835-2202

Painting

Generally, you don’t have to repaint your walls unless you changed the paint color while you lived in your apartment or there is excessive damage due to smoking or excessive holes.

If you’ve caused damage to your apartment during the time you’ve lived there, you’re going to face either a considerable deduction from your deposit, or you may not receive any of your deposit back. If the PPM decides the cost of the damage exceeds the amount of your deposit, it’s within his/her/their rights to sue you for the difference. Owning up to the damage and paying for it immediately is the best way to avoid major headaches — not to mention a “black mark” on your renter’s record.

Some reckless renters who know they’ve caused considerable damage to their homes and know that the dollar amount will exceed their deposits have elected to hit the road suddenly and without warning.

While some tenants may have gotten away with it, many haven’t. And the consequences of such actions — including the real possibility of a lawsuit filed from PPM to gain compensation of the rent they lost when you fled, plus compensation for damages, is far more expensive than accepting responsibility for the damage you caused.

Accidents and even occasional bouts of stupidity happen. Owning up to these incidents will pave a smooth path to your next home. Believe it or not, PPM does call on a prospective tenant’s former management company/landlord. Moving is hassle enough.

In the renters’ world, those tried-and-true rules you learned as a kid apply: Clean up after yourself, take responsibility for your actions, and you’ll be well-received. Mom always did know best, didn’t she?
