I'm moving out. 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
Your 28-Day Notice to Vacate
Notice to Vacate is a written notice provided to the community center by the Service Member or Spouse (authorized Power of Attorney required) informing us of your intent to vacate your home. A minimum of 28 day notice is required prior to vacating. This is per:
- Lease Agreement
- Soldiers Civil Relief Act
Can't Provide 28-Day
Contact the community center 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 28-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 28-day notice and do not have "short orders," you are financially responsible for the remainder of the 28-day requirement.
Placing Notice to Vacate
When placing your Notice to Vacate at the community center, you will receive a Move-Out Guide that outlines move-out expectations and the process. In addition, you will be scheduled for a Move-Out Information Session.
TMO Scheduling Reminder
To ensure that TMO can meet your familys departure timeline be sure to schedule your move as soon as you have orders.
Move-Out Information Session
One-hour sessions are held weekly at IPC community centers. The session offers an interactive group discussion surrounding requirements for clearing your home. Attending a session is highly recommended in order to fully understand the expectations and reduce final costs.
