Before Submitting a Maintenance Requests review the table below for suggestions on resolving common issues:
Moving out can be a busy and sometimes stressful time. Coastal Pioneer Realty provides checklists and guides to help make your transition smoother, faster and more organized.
You must give proper notice prior to vacating the property, as outlined in your lease. Coastal Pioneer Realty will conduct a move-out inspection only after all of your personal property has been removed and the property is fully cleaned. We consider you still living at the property until you return the keys (and gate or garage door remote if applicable) to our office. You will not be allowed to re-enter the home after all keys have been turned into the office.
To assist us in making refunds to you promptly, we ask that you review the security deposit section of the Residential Lease Agreement that you signed when you moved in. This will clarify the refund procedure and explain any additional charges which you may incur.
The better the condition of the property when you leave, the faster the deposit can be returned to you, to the forwarding address you provide. If you vacate the property prior to the end of the lease term, you will still be responsible for paying the rent for the remainder of the lease however, we will do our best to try and lease the property.
