Your most important responsibility as a resident is to comply with the rental contract and policies relating to rental housing rules. If you do not, you may be asked to move out. Be sure to read and understand what is expected of you before you sign the rental agreement.

 

 

1. Purchase renters insurance. This gives you, the renter, protection for your personal belongings in case of fire, flood, burglary or other disasters. A landlord's insurance policy does not cover a renter's personal belongings. Also, if it was your negligence that caused the disaster, you could be held liable for any damage to the property of others. A renter's insurance policy normally provides personal liability coverage.

2. Pay rent on time. You should pay your rent on the day it is due. If you are in arrears in the payment of rent, the landlord may serve you with a written notice demanding that you pay the rent or move out of the unit within three (3) days. If you still fail to abide by the notice, eviction proceedings may begin.

3. Notify us when things go wrong. It is very important to notify the property manager, when things in your home are not operating properly or are broken. If necessary, put the notice in writing. Management One will be responsive to your request and will attempt to fix the problem as soon as possible. For repair items of a minor nature, less than $25, you should take care of the problem yourself, if possible, and submit the receipt to the property manager as this will keep costs down and reduce the need for rent increases.


4. Properly maintain your home. State law requires the owner to maintain the property in a habitable condition. It also requires you to properly maintain the property and keep it clean. so always:

-Keep the premises clean and sanitary.
