Additional Resources

We understand that life can throw a curve ball at you from time to time. These curve balls can cause financial hardships that can place you in a bind for a long period of time. We have reached out and cultivated relationships with many different charities that can help many different financial needs, weather that comes in the form of additional money for rent, utilities, food, clothing, or if you just need someone to lean on. The process we have refined with these charities for rent payments is designed to keep you from getting behind. In order for you to be successful, we need you to contact us before the first of the month so we can intercede and prevent additional fees from accruing. Please click the link below for a complete list of the charities in Dallas County. Additionally, please contact your property manager for more information and guidance.


Notice to Vacate

We understand that your rental house is not always your forever house and you might move because of new jobs, changes in your family, or just wanting a new place to live. Our 30 Day Notice to Vacate process was designed to make sure that both parties are well informed of their obligations to ensure there is no confusion on expectations. The 30 Day Notice to Vacate has a complete list of requirements for a successful notice to vacate. Below are some of the more important requirements for a 30 Day Notice to Vacate:

  • Must be written on our 30 Day Notice to Vacate, which can be retrieved from an Alden Short associate
  • Must be cross signed by an Alden Short associate so both parties understand, agree, and acknowledge the terms of the 30 Day Notice to Vacate
  • Cannot break a current lease
  • Must be at least 30 days prior to the end of the lease
  • Must fulfill the terms of the 30 Day Notice to Vacate

We have found successful tenant transitions have the following activities:

  • Keys are returned to an Alden Short associate and a receipt for the keys is signed by both parties on or before the move-out date
  • Vacate the property by the agreed date
  • Left the property in good clean condition, this includes making sure all trash has been removed from the property ,yards mowed, and all lease obligations are fulfilled
  • A forwarding address was supplied on the 30 Day Notice to Vacate
  • Only one 30 Day Notice to Vacate is submitted. Multiple notices causes confusion on intent

We understand the excitement of moving to a new location, but please take time and make sure you have thought through your timeline and process. Doing this will ensure an easier transition. If you have questions about a 30 Day Notice to Vacate or wish to obtain a 30 Day Notice to Vacate please visit one of Alden Short’s locations and talk with an associate.
