- Over 30% of all occupied homes in Kansas are rentals. Yet, most tenants are unaware of their basic rights in the housing contract. To protect your interest as a resident, we recommend you review the Kansas Tenant Handbook.
- If you are a current tenant of a Mid-Kansas CAP or Vintage Apartments At Hillsboro Property and need a repair, or have another issue requiring attention in your home, please complete and submit work order.
- If you are a current tenant about to move OUT of a Mid-Kansas CAP or Vintage Apartments At Hillsboro Property, don’t forget to prepare for your Inspection! Review the Unit Inspection Checklist.
- Moving into a new apartment is a hard but fun and exciting process. However, you still have obligations to your current landlord, the largest of which is apartment cleaning. Landlords want to rent out your old unit as soon as possible, therefore, you need to deep clean the apartment before your move-out inspection. If you don’t, you risk losing your security deposit.
- If you leave your apartment trashed, you’ll not only lose your security deposit, it will reflect poorly on you. Some people think it doesn’t matter because you’ve already signed a lease at a new place. But what if you need a reference? Most managers will call your last two landlords. That landlord can say the unit was not left in good condition and that may disqualify you from renting another home in the future.
- If cleaning and repairs exceed the security deposit the landlord will send an itemized bill stating what you owe. If you choose not to pay the bill, it will be sent to collections. This will lower your credit score and make it more difficult to rent another unit, obtain a loan, and can possibly hurt a job search. Don’t go down that path.
- Cleaning up your unit for your move-out inspection is not the most glamorous thing in the world. However, it’s very important that you leave your old unit in the same condition as when you first rented it. It takes time, but is fairly simple when you have an itemized list. The last thing you want to do is risk your reputation and security deposit. It’s not worth it.
