All tenants are required to turn in a formal written 30 day notice in person at RE/MAX Real Estate Partners on 119 Mayfair Rd, Hattiesburg, MS 39402.

The RE/MAX staff will date and time-stamp receipt and should provide you with a copy for your records and provide you with a move-out checklist.  Please see below for the items that need to be fully completed to refund your security deposit.  Remember that all utilities must remain turned on throughout the full term of your lease.  Early shutoff could result in a deposit charge as well as additional cleaning fees.  If lawn maintenance is your responsibility, don't forget to weed eat and make sure the flowerbeds are clean as well.
