Your 30-Day Notice to Vacate
A Notice to Vacate is written notice provided to the Community Center Office by the Service Member or Spouse (authorized Power of Attorney required) informing us of your intent to vacate your home. A minimum of 30-days’ notice is required prior to vacating. This is per:
- Lease Agreement
- Soldiers Civil Relief Act
Can't Provide 30-Day Notice?
Contact the Community Center Office immediately and we can review your circumstances.
Short Orders are defined as orders that are received/dated with a report-no-late-date that is less than 30-days (Resident must visit and place a written notice within 72-hours of receiving orders).
Vacation and Permissive TDY are not reasons for short notices
If you choose to move prior to fulfilling the 30-notice date and do not have “short orders” you are financially responsible for the remainder of the 30-day requirement.
Placing Notice to Vacate
When placing your Notice to Vacate at the Community Center Office you will receive a Move-Out Guide brochure that outlines move-out expectations and the process. In addition you will be scheduled for a Move-Out Information Session.
To ensure that we can meet your family’s departure timeline be sure to schedule your move as soon as you have orders.
Move-Out Information Session
Move-Out Information Sessions are held at each community center every week.
Adirondack Creek, Wednesdays at 3PM
Crescent Woods, Thursdays at 3PM
Monument Ridge, Fridays at 9AM
Rhicard Hills, Tuesdays at 9AM
The session offers interactive group discussions regarding the requirements associated with clearing your home. Attending a workshop is highly recommended in order to fully understand the expectations and reduce final costs.
Self-Clean: A resident may choose to clean their home to the expectations described in the Move-Out Guidelines. This is a very doable option for those who have maintained their home during residency.
Hire Your Own Cleaning Company: This is another viable cleaning option. Please remember, the home must still be cleaned to the expectations described in the Move-Out Guidelines.
The Final Inspection Procedure
All final inspections are scheduled Monday through Thursday.
- All personal belongings and trash must be removed.
- Home is cleaned to expectations as stated in the Move-Out Guide.
- All keys and garage remotes that were issued are collected.
- Resident is provided a detailed list of charges (if applicable), prorated BAH amount and amount of refund (if applicable).
- Resident is provided a Termination Letter.
Please note: refunds are issued after the BAH allotment is received and damage charges (if applicable) have been deducted. Reminder, the BAH allotment is collected at the end of the month for that month. The refund check is mailed to the forwarding address that you provide. Refund checks typically arrive within 14-business days after the BAH allotment is received.
