Keys should be returned to our office, and we will need your forwarding address so that your security deposit can be returned to you.

Our Move Out Procedures will assist you in leaving your apartment in move-in condition.


Q: I have moved out, but how do I get my security deposit back?

Real Property Management Inc has 45 days from the day your lease ends to return your security deposit (if applicable).

If you were a resident of a multi-tenant apartment or house, the security deposit will be returned to the resident that returned keys and supplied their forwarding address on the key return envelope, regardless of whether or not it was paid by that person. That resident will be responsible for distributing the security deposit to his or her roommates.
