Frequently Asked Questions for Prospective Tenants

Experience the Carolina Moves Property Management Difference.

Carolina Moves has put together a list of the most frequently asked questions for prospective tenants in the hope that we will be able to alleviate some of your initial concerns. However, you are welcome to contact us directly to discuss anything at any time.

All currently available rental properties will be found on our Available Properties page and on several other websites, including but not limited to: Hotpads, Trulia, Zillow, Lovely, Apartment Guide, RentPath, Rentals.com and Rent.com.

At Carolina Moves, we do all showings with a showing specialist present. To schedule a showing please call us at 864.475.1234 or We will set you up with a knowledgeable Carolina Moves agent that will meet you directly at the desired rental property and be available to answer any questions you might have.

When you look at any of our Carolina Moves properties you will see an Available Now icon, which indicates that you could move into the property immediately or an availability date that will indicate the earliest move-in date for the property.

All of our applications are available online directly through our Carolina Moves Property Management website. Click here to APPLY NOW or you can find a link at the top of each page as well as in the detail section of each available property.

There is a $40 non-refundable application fee per applicant over the age of 18.

Normally, once all information is received along with your application fee(s), the application process is completed within one business day.

All prospective tenants of a Carolina Moves rental property must be 18 years of age or older and must submit an application for tenancy and pay a $40 non-refundable application fee. In considering whether or not to approve an applicant, Carolina Moves considers the following key factors:


All properties are subject to the Federal Fair Housing Act which makes it illegal to advertise any preferences, limitation or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, country of national origin, handicap, or familial status.

Even if you don't have any credit history, you will still be required to submit an application. If everything else in your background checks out, then you will need a guarantor to co-sign with you. Applications will then be reviewed on a case by case basis. A cosigner is someone whose credit and background would qualify them for the property and who will co-sign the lease and take responsibility for all payments should you fail to make them. If a co-signor is necessary, he or she will have to complete a separate application and pay the $40 application fee.

No, we do not permit day cares or any other businesses to be run out of a Carolina Moves residential rental property.

Yes, pets of non-restricted breeds are allowed only in our pet friendly properties and with a $250 non-refundable pet fee (per pet) due on your move in date. Some additional size and breed restrictions may apply to a specific property and will be noted in the property description.


Once your application is approved, you will be notified by a Carolina Moves Property Manager. At this time you will be required to sign a Carolina Moves Rental Agreement and submit security deposit funds equal to, at minimum, one month's rent.

Yes, Carolina Moves requires a security deposit equal to at least 1 month's rent. Security deposits are considered the property of the tenant and are placed in a Carolina Moves Trust Account and will remain in a Carolina Moves Trust Account until such a time as the tenant vacates the property. At that time, Carolina Moves reserves the right to disperse the tenant's security deposit, as necessary by the tenant's lease terms and law, within 30 days.

A move out inspection will be performed when you vacate the property and any damages beyond normal wear and tear or any unpaid balances on your account will be deducted from your security deposit at that time. You are entitled to an accounting of any deductions from your security deposit, as well as a refund of remaining funds and that will be provided to you within 30 days of your move out.

Unless specifically indicated in the property description, it is the responsibility of the tenant to set up all utility and public service accounts in the tenant's name and provide proof of transfer. Carolina Moves requires utility account information to show that such accounts have been placed in the name of the tenant prior to the tenant taking possession of the rental property.

No, unfortunately, security deposits that are paid upon approval of tenancy are non-refundable, even if you decided not to move into the property. However, if you never accepted tenancy and didn't obtain keys to the property, you will not be charged any additional damages above and beyond the security deposit you originally put down.

Yes.

Yes, the landlord's insurance will only cover the structure of the rental property; it does not cover any of your personal belongings. Carolina Moves requires you to have proof of Renter's Insurance prior to the start date of your lease agreement and before your keys are released for occupancy.

Carolina Moves Property Management 5-Star Reviews
"I love the flat fee service they provide too instead of a percentage of the rent too which is great when you have a mix of cheaper and more expensive rentals. Carolina Moves was a life changer for me and now I just sit back and collect mailbox money with zero hassles. Also, with the increase in rents Matt was able to achieve, I basically take home the same net income I did before when I managed the properties myself!! Definitely give them a call. You will not be disappointed."

"Carolina Moves has streamlined the management of my property, saved me money, and customer service has been outstanding. I would highly recommend exploring their services if you currently work with someone else and are looking for cost saving opportunities, or if you're managing your own property(s) and want to enjoy more free time. The team at Carolina Moves is 5-star and getting better every day!"

"The hands-down, best property management company in the Upstate. This isn't just one person, although the owner, Matt Foster is extremely hands on and will help answer any question you have. Here is why they rocked our socks: Had a quick work related move and needed to have our house rented. Called the office, talked to several ladies who were extremely knowledgeable and walked us through the process/sent us documents electronically (sped up the process significantly). They scheduled a meeting at our house with Matt. He did a detailed walk-through and sat down/gave us his sage advice. He is detail oriented, passionate, and moves fast! Had our pictures for home taken that day and the same evening our home was listed online. Within 72 hours our home was rented by an extremely well qualified tenant. Thank you Carolina Moves team! "

"We just recently relocated to the area and Carolina moves has certainly made this a very pleasant experience for us. Everyone at the company has been extremely helpful and caring. Moving out of state can be very stressful, but thanks to Carolina moves, they eased up alot of that stress for us. Thank you Carolina moves, we are very happy in our home so far. Jennifer Arter even did a Skype showing for us as we relocated from 800 miles away! this made it very convenient and upon arrival it was everything we hoped for and then some."
