Move Out Process

Idoni Management expects that, aside from normal wear and tear over the course of the lease, that our properties be surrendered at the end of the lease in a similar condition as at the beginning of the lease.

Please fill out and submit this form to officially notify us of your intent to move out.

Within 30 days of your surrender of the property, you will receive the following items: Your security deposit less any repair, cleaning, maintenance deductions as noted by an itemized list of items and their respective costs.

This is the primary purpose of security deposits. In order for us to refund as much of your security deposit as possible without make-ready deductions, please review the following move-out guidelines. These guidelines are subject to the written terms of the lease and CT landlord tenant law.

Your security deposit does not apply to your last month’s rent.

• The full term of the lease contract has been met or the full rental balance of the lease has been paid in full.

• Written notice to vacate has been received per the terms of the written lease along with forwarding addresses.

• Deduction from your security deposit will be made for any damages incurred during the term of the lease beyond normal wear and tear.
