INSPECTION & REPAIRS

BEFORE YOU MOVE OUT

Wildwood staff will be performing preliminary unit inspections during your lease term. We will be inspecting for unreported maintenance that we can repair prior to your move out date. Wildwood Lubbock management will inform you of any upcoming inspections via e-mail.

  • You are not required to be present for these inspections, but please secure all pets and belongings during business hours when an inspection walk has been notified.
  • We are solely looking for damages to floors, doors, fixtures, appliances, furniture, etc., but we are not observing cleanliness or paint damage during this inspection.
  • Our maintenance staff and licensed vendors will return to perform repairs if any are needed after your unit is inspected.
  • Wildwood Lubbock reserves the right to bill for repairs to the apartment after these items have been fixed, from inspection walks during the lease term or as a final move-out walk.

PAINT & CLEAN

AFTER YOU MOVE OUT

Wildwood maintenance and licensed vendors will paint, clean, and steam clean the vacated rooms and common areas.

  • We will be looking for excessively dirty apartments (where no attempt was made to clean the unit upon move out), trash and personal items that have been left behind, and excessive paint, carpet, and maintenance related damages.
  • Every resident is sent a final move-out statement after the lease agreement term dates end. All final move-out statements will be surface mailed within 30-days of your move-out. All cleaning, damages, and repairs will be billed back per tenant. Please note that many move-out statements will have a final utility bill.
  • Once the final move-out statement is received by mail, if you have any disputes please take the route directed on the additional paperwork to ensure that we can work through any potential discrepancies.
  • If excessive cleaning, painting, carpet repair, or trash/personal belonging removal is required, additional charges WILL apply.
