Semi Annual Safety Inspections
After six months of residency, we would like to meet with tenants for safety updates. A form will be provided with a checklist of property conditions.
After a year, a walk through should coincide so that we may visually verify the checklist.
Here are some examples of the types of things we want to know about: garage roof leaks, excessive mildew in rear bedroom closet, fuses blow out frequently, door lock sticks, water comes out too hot in shower, exhaust fan above stove doesn’t work, smoke alarm malfunctions, peeling paint, and mice in basement. Please point out any potential safety and security problems in the neighborhood and anything you consider a serious nuisance.
Please use the vent fan in the bathroom every time you shower!
Pets are normally not allowed. During the application process, exceptions for pets would be looked at by using the following considerations: Aquatic set ups of no more than 20 gallons. Caged animal set-ups would be small and well contained. Land animals would preferably weigh under 20lbs. Well behaved, quiet pets, who – would not disturb neighbors, guests, or neighboring pets – are without destructive or aggressive tendencies – and are potty trained. Should we make an exception to approve a specific pet, these are the rules that most be followed: Additional pet deposit is required, equaling 1/2 the amount of initial cleaning deposit. Only the pet named in the Agreement can be allowed on the property. Aquatic and caged set ups must be well contained, with reliable measures to prevent spills and debris. With Indoor/Outdoor “land” animals – it’s tenants responsibility to provide fence containment, pet access doors, and other accommodations if existing ones are not adequate for your situation. Plans for such alterations are subject to approval – upon which time, terms for share of cost will be determined. All landscaping dug up or flattened will be repaired and/or replanted at tenants expense. Should scratches to walls, floors, etc. occur, tenants are responsible for immediate repairs. Pet should not defecate anywhere on the property, or inside any building. If he/she does, it must be picked up and disposed of promptly.
