Be sure you turn in your inspection sheet. Otherwise you may be held responsible for previous damage.
Repairs & Maintenance
Report all service call requests to the office as soon as possible. We try to take care of them as soon as possible, but we do not promise round-the-clock service. Residents that call outside service personnel are responsible for the bill without prior approval of the owner or manager.
Your lease states that no pets are allowed in your apartment without the written consent of the manager. If you are found to be in violation of this lease condition, you will be charged a fee of $100 and be charged $10 per day until the pet is removed. Cats are usually allowed, but dogs are not except in very few apartments.
Spraying for Bugs
Your unit will be exterminated quarterly by professional exterminators. Notification will be given two days in advance.
We highly recommend that you buy renters' insurance. Our property insurance does not protect, and we are not liable for your personal property in case of fire, etc. In fact, without renters' insurance you may be held liable for our property if you caused a fire.
We are very concerned about the safety of our residents. Fire can destroy your personal belongings and endanger your life. We hope that you take precautions to prevent fires. Most fires are caused by hot grease on the kitchen stove. Never pour water on a grease fire because this will cause the fire to scatter and spread. Use baking soda or flour to smother the flames. Do not attempt to remove a flaming pot or pan from the stove because you may easily spill the contents causing severe burns. Be sure to replace smoke detector batteries as needed.
Loud music and obnoxious behavior are prohibited. Our goal is to provide a pleasant and comfortable living experience for our residents.
Locks & Keys
Your locks may be rekeyed if you are willing to pay for it in advance. We recommend that you leave an extra key with a friend or neighbor.
Watch them closely when they are outside and keep them out of the parking lot. Drive responsibly in the parking lot.
Report any suspicious-looking person or stranger to the owner or manager. Keep your doors and windows locked.
Only certain items may be kept outside your apartment without the written consent of the manager. Check if you are unsure which items are acceptable. Keep toys and trash picked up. No maintenance or washing of vehicles is permitted. No barbeque grills are allowed on the patios.
Gas Pilot Lights
If you have a gas furnace and gas water heater the gas pilot lights will occasionally go out, usually for no apparent reason. To keep costs (and your rent) as low as possible, we expect you to light these pilots if necessary. This is a simple procedure and we will show you how to do it if you don't know how. Call our office for a demonstration. You may be charged for a service call if we have to do it and no other problem exists.
Pay Your Rent on Time
The rent is due on the first and a late fee will be charged if not paid by the fifth. Payments must be made by check or money order (no cash).
If You Don't Pay Your Rent
