Moving In

September 1st is a very busy day in Boston, as most leases begin on this date. Moving vans and delivery trucks clog the streets as thousands of people move into apartments. Landlords and management companies are aware of this as well, and may let you move in a few days early, if the apartment is available. You might also consider holding off your move for a few days to allow the crowds to clear.

Inspect your apartment to confirm that repairs have been made. Use our Apartment Condition Checklist to assist you and your landlord in identifying any damage that already exists in the apartment. Don’t move into an unsafe or unsanitary apartment – contact your landlord immediately, or the Mayor’s Hotline by dialing 3-1-1!
