Notice to Vacate
The tenant must provide JWC with a written notice of surrender of the leased premises no less than 30 days prior to the expiration date of the lease. Failure to give the minimum 30 days written notice will make the tenant responsible for the payment in full of the following months rent under the terms of the lease. The vacate date is the date that the tenant has surrendered the keys to our office. Keys must be brought into our office and handed over to our staff.
Military Clause: A 30 day written notice is required and an official copy of military orders must accompany the tenant notice to vacate. We verify all PCS, ETS and Deployment orders for authenticity.

If something isn’t done to JWC standards we will attempt to recall your vendor only one time. IF they do not come and resolve the issue, JWC will have to send our own vendor out, which will result in you being assessed additional charges.
