Moving out

Check-out

The check-out takes place at the agreed time where BSN and the resident review the apartment, no later than 12:00 the day your contract expires. You are responsible for reserving a time no later than 30 days before the end of the contract. We recommend that reserve time as early as possible. It can quickly be fully booked on some days. After the handover, the tenant has no longer access to the residence. The apartment must be move in ready at the handover.

You can  reserve a time in the calendar here: booking calendar

If the apartment is handed over before the lease expires, electricity and hot water will end after the handover, but you still have to pay the rent until the contract expiration date.

What is expected from you

Moving and washing out is time consuming. How extensive it is depends on how well it is cleaned daily.

The whole apartment must be cleaned thoroughly including in common areas, balcony and stalls, Even if your roommate is staying or moving out later.

All of the stains and dirt should be removed and you must clean places that you do not normally clean during regular cleaning. Bathroom and kitchen must be cleaned thoroughly.

Injuries and defects must also be registered well in advance of inspection. So it can be remedied in the tenant's rental period. If this is registered too late, it can impose a rental income loss that the tenant will  be responsible for.

Tips before you start

Start with the tiles in the bathroom and kitchen well before the handover. Many find that they have to spend several rounds on this. It may be smart to take a thorough cleaning a few weeks before handing over. Remember to use the right products for different areas. In case of incorrect use you may risk making the starting point you first set with, worse.

Remember:

  • Leave the mailbox key hanging on the hook in your apartment.
  • The apartment must be completely emptied and cleaned before handover.
  • If you rent a parking space, this must be handed over at the same time. The booth must be emptied and swept
  • Your mailbox folder must be demolished
  • Outlets after using a washing machine must be sealed with a sealer
