Turn In Keys & Move Out Form

Move-out time is July 25th before 12:00 noon. When you are ready to check out, lock your bedroom door behind you and visit the clubhouse to return your keys.

If you are moving out after hours, please fill out the Move Out Form so that we have documentation of you turning in your keys & wristband, and a permanent forwarding address. Below is a list of replacement charges.

  • Door Key $25
  • Mail Key $25
  • Wristband $4

Change Of Address

Please change your address with the sender for any mail you may be expecting.

The USPS considers all residents at the Woodlands to have the same address.  We cannot allow residents to forward their mail because USPS does not divide mail based on the unit number – ALL mail addressed to the entire property would be forwarded.  The Woodlands does not offer mail forwarding services.  

Instead of using the USPS move out form, change your address with the sender.  If you are expecting a package that has been sent but not arrived, contact the carrier (FedEx, UPS, etc) to see if you can change the delivery address.
