Landlords are required to sign a landlord/tenant transfer card prior to any billing changes. Deposits will be applied to final bills when a tenant moves out or a land contract is paid off.

Tenants are required to call in when moving to give a forwarding address to receive any refund on deposit.

  • the vacation of the premises by a tenant;
