Moving out checklist - Private Renters in Camden

Moving out checklist

  • Find your tenancy agreement and any attachments 
  • Find your move-in inventory 
  • Clean the property and make sure it is in the same condition as when you moved in, apart from fair wear and tear.  
  • Attend move-out inventory inspection 
  • Pay your bills 
    • Make sure you pay all your bills before moving out – gas, electric, broadband, council tax , water etc. 
    • Take photos of your electric and gas meter readings when you leave. 
    • Contact all companies you pay before you move out to tell them date you will be leaving. This should prevent you being charged for anything once you leave.
