Preparing For Your Move

It's almost time start your new lease with us and we would like to welcome you with a few friendly reminders for a smooth start.

Weekends. If you will be arriving on a weekend, please make sure to call ahead to schedule an appointment. We are NOT open on the weekends.

1st Month's Rent. When you check in, you will need to pay your pro-rated portion of your 1st month's rent for your new home that you are moving into. Please give our office a call if you need the pro-rated amount. 

Making A PaymentWe accept Visa/MasterCard at our office or via phone. Any checks or money orders should be made out to "Glatz Management" and have your name and apartment number on it. This will expedite bookkeeping and insure that you get proper credit for what you have paid. PLEASE NOTE: Michigan law provides the receiver of a bad check to collect double the amount of the check from the maker. 

Utilities. If you are responsible for paying for your own utilities, you should decide between you and your roommates who will be putting the utility bills into their name. Call the company to make arrangements BEFORE your lease begin date. You will need to provide us with a confirmation number for the electric and gas to prove that they have been put into someone's name. 

Electric - Consumers Energy 1-800-477-5050

Gas - DTE Energy 1-800-477-4747

Cable TV/Internet - Charter Communications 1-888-438-2427

Water, Sewer, Trash - (Contact our office regarding deposit to the city) 

Inventory Check-In Sheet. You will be given your keys along with an inventory check-in sheet. This sheet needs to be completed by you within 3 days of your move-in date. Please be as detailed as possible. 

Checking In Past Start Date. If you are not going to be checking in on your move-in date, you will need to send in your 1st months pro-rated rent. 

Renter's Insurance. It is highly suggested that you obtain renters insurance. It can help you protect your stuff if something bad happens to it or your rental..

We look forward to having a great year together and wish you happiness in your new home. If you have any questions, please contact Silvernail Realty at 231-796-6329. Thank you!
