Departing Residents

I'm moving. What now?

We understand that moving can be a very stressful time. Take a look at some of our tips below to help eliminate the headaches that often come with moving. 
 
Your 30-Day Notice to Vacate
A Notice to Vacate is written notice provided to the leasing office by the Service Member 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 Timbers staff 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 leasing office you will receive a Move-Out Guide brochure that outlines move-out expectations and the process.
 
Scheduling Reminder
To ensure that we can meet your departure timeline be sure to schedule your move as soon as you have orders.
 
When you schedule your final inspection, a Timbers representative will go through the cleaning standards with you. You can also find full details in your Move-Out Brochure. For the Final Inspection the home must be fully emptied and cleaned. The Resident will receive a final utility bill and will turn the keys over to the Timbers representative. If any monies are owed, they will be paid by the Resident at the Leasing Office prior to departure. ALL utility payments are to be made to Harris Consulting Engineering, Inc. at 1-877-530-7373.
 
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.
