|WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOUR MOVE-IN DATE
Your move-in date is approaching--are you sure you have everything completed? Review our handy checklist so
that you can be sure your move-in date will go smoothly.
1. UTILITY CONFIRMATION
Before you move-in, you must be able to provide confirmation numbers from all applicable utility companies. All
residents are required to have electricity billing in their name on their move-in date; some residents will also need to
have the gas and/or water utility in their name as well.
Each utility company will provide you with either a confirmation number or an account number after you have called
to have the billing switched; you will need to provide these to the Meadowbrook office when you come in to pick up
your keys. Sometimes there can be a substantial wait time to speak with a customer service representative; we
suggest contacting the required utility company(s) several days or weeks before your move-in date.

You may also wish to contact one of several internet/television/phone companies; these services are not required by
Meadowbrook, so there is no need to provide us with confirmation numbers or account numbers.

If you will be moving in with other people, be aware that not all roommates need to be present to pick up keys on
your move-in day; however, WE MUST HAVE ALL REQUIRED CONFIRMATION NUMBERS BEFORE WE WILL
GIVE OUT ANY KEYS. This means that whomever is present on move-in day must have all confirmation numbers.
Your first month's rent payment is due on the day you pick up your keys, and will be pro-rated to your move-in date.
(If your lease begins after the first of a month, you will not pay a full month's rent.) Your leasing agent can give you
the correct amount of rent to pay when you come to move-in; if you owe other fees (pet, covered parking, utility
charges, etc.) these will be pro-rated along with your rent.
You can pay rent with a personal check, cashier's check, money order, Visa or Mastercard (debit or credit). WE DO
NOT ACCEPT CASH. If you had previously planned on bringing cash with you, please make arrangements to get a
money order or cashier's check.
THE ENTIRE PRO-RATED AMOUNT MUST BE PAID BEFORE WE WILL GIVE OUT ANY KEYS TO THE
APARTMENT OR TOWNHOME. If you or one of your roommates will not be present at move-in, make sure that he
or she has made arrangements to pay rent. A check can be sent with whomever will be picking up keys, or rent can
be called in by credit card (Visa/Mastercard) over the phone. We have a secure computer program that allows us to
safely process credit card payments.
After you move-in, rent will always be due on the first of the month. We will not send out statements to remind you of
your monthly rent. Any rent received after the 5th of the month will accrue late fees.
3. SET UP CHECK-IN APPOINTMENT (MOVE-IN INSPECTION)
When you pick up your keys, we will set up your move-in inspection. This "check-in" must be done within five days of
your move-in date, so please make time for this as you are scheduling the first few days in your apartment. The
check-in protects you from responsibility for any minor damages that may already be present in the apartment (i.e. a
stain on the carpet, scratches on the countertop, etc.)
If there are several roommates living in the apartment, please know that only one roommate needs to be present for
the check-in; however, all roommates should carefully inspect their areas to ensure that you have an accurate
