*End of the year Check-out procedures

At the end of the spring semester, residents must vacate their apartment/suite by the end of May, at the latest.  Failure to do so may result in judicial and/or legal action being taken by the Management.

Each resident will need to make arrangements with Lancer Management Group, LLC to have their apartment/suite inspected for damage during the specified checkout hours.  All personal property must be removed prior to the time of inspection.  The resident must take all personal property with them upon their departure.  Any property left after vacating the apartment/suite will be considered abandoned and will become the property of LMG.  Items left will be disposed of as LMG sees fit.  Failure to remove items from the suite/apartment will result in removal charges and storage fees starting at $20 per item.

During the inspection, the resident will be required to return all keys and equipment that may have been issued to the resident by LMG.  Keys that are not returned at the time of checkout will result in a lock change fee of $100 and $5 for a mailbox.  Also, failure to complete the checkout processes will result in a minimum of $50 improper check out fee and any charges incurred for the removal of all personal property and possible storage charges.  Final apartment/suite inspections will be conducted by a professional staff member of LMG.

Damages outlined in the community guide handbook will be assessed within 30 days after checkout and notice of damage charges will be sent to the residents’ permanent address.  Any damages incurred by residents who will not return to Lancer Commons the following academic year will be taken from the security deposit.  Any remaining amount will be refunded to the resident.  Refunds are processed by LMG.  This process is timely and can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.  It is your responsibility to make sure you notify LMG of your forwarding address you want your refund check mailed to.

Current residents DO NOT need to submit another security deposit.
