Move-out Process

  • New York State law requires tenants to provide Dasa Properties with written notice 31 days in advance of intent to move
  • Your security deposit cannot be used as payment for your last month’s rent or to pay off any outstanding balances
  • Once informed of your intent to move, we will request that you allow us access to your unit with 24 hours' notice - for the purpose of securing prospective residents
  • Within 15 days of our receiving your written notice, we will contact you to confirm your move-out date and arrange a time for your final walk-thru so that any damages can be assessed
  • At the time of move out, your residence must be broom clean and in the same condition it was in when rented.

 To complete your move, all of your belongings need to be removed from the property and all keys relinquished to a Dasa employee
  • Please remember that rent will be accrued each day your possessions remain on the property even if you have physically vacated the premises
  • New York State law gives landlords reasonable time to evaluate the residence and provide written notice to the tenant’s last-known address of any damage in excess of normal wear and tear
