What happens when my lease is up?


When a tenant has decided not to renew their Lease, we send them a move out inspection report via email prior to their Lease expiration. We typically do a final walk through and document it with photographs and a move out inspection report and go over any potential deductions during the walk through.




I am moving out, when will I get my deposit back?


By law we have up to 30 days to send the deposit back. However, our goal is to get residents their security deposits back as quickly as possible once they move out. We do need to inspect the property after residents move out and we typically are able to have the security deposit in mail between the 15-30 day window. PLEASE NOTE: Residents can expedite getting their security deposits back by ensuring they provide a forwarding address upon moving out. Residents MUST provide a forwarding address before we can mail the security deposit back.

No modifications can be made without express written permission from Dahlia Homes. If you have a modification request please email us or submit a request through the Resident Portal.




What happens if I need to terminate my lease early for some reason ?


In the event that you wish to terminate your lease early, you must notify Dahlia Homes ASAP. Once notified, we will actively begin to market the property for rent. You will be responsible for rent for the entire lease term unless Dahlia Homes is able to secure a new lease with a qualified applicant. If we are able to secure a new lease with a qualified applicant, then you will be relieved from your rental obligation as of the date that the new lease starts but will lose all of your security deposit in addition to a fee in the amount of one month's rent.
