Tips on Move-In Procedures

A few things to note when renting from Lincolnshire Properties:

  • Your key to your unit will be issued to you upon receipt of both your deposit and first month rent checks. 
  • A checklist will be in your unit when you arrive. It becomes the basis for the return of your damage deposit. You must complete it and turn it in to our offices within two weeks of moving in. 
  • Use the information at right to contact and set-up your utilities. While gas, electric, phone and cable companies each have their own lead-time for disconnect/connect notification, a good rule of thumb is to contact their customer service departments at least two weeks prior to your move-in date. Arrange to have utility services up and running at your new residence at least a day before you move in!
