Welcome to your new home. We at Kreative Management are pleased to call you our neighbor. One of the many features that make our properties fantastic is our residents’ willingness to adhere to the community rules.
Please conduct your activities in and around the premises so you do not interfere with the rights, comforts or conveniences of fellow residents.
The following rules are part of your lease and must be followed. Noncompliance with these rules may be grounds for termination of your lease.
The Tenant shall not use any appliance in addition to those supplied by the Landlord without first obtaining the written consent of the Landlord. The Tenant shall properly care for all appliances supplied by the Landlord and notify the Landlord if such appliances require repair; further, any damage to such appliances shall be paid for by the Tenant.
Balconies or patios may not be used for storage or hanging clothes. No carpeting of balconies/patios is allowed unless approved by Management. In accordance with local laws and safety concerns, no gas or charcoal BBQ's are permitted on balconies, patios or garages. Plants are permitted but Residents are expected to put protection under plants to prevent water or dirt from staining the balcony or patio area or leaking to any other balcony or patio area. Residents will be responsible for any water or material falling from a balcony area or damage done to a balcony or patio. Care should be taken with pots to use natural dirt and planting material that is not flammable. Some fertilizers and potting material are combustible when placed in heat or sun and should not be used in the balcony or patio area.
Please always have consideration for your neighbors by keeping the noise level down. Residents are encouraged to handle complaints between themselves. However, if Resident communication does not work, please contact the landlord. Please remember you are responsible for your guests and their conduct.
Individual apartments, and the apartment community, are to be used exclusively as a private residence. All business and commercial uses are prohibited. Residents are expected to have periodic guests and visitors at their apartment for social and family purposes. If the number of guests and visitors is excessive in terms of total number or its tendency to disturb fellow Residents, then Owner may ask Resident to restrict or limit the number of visitors. Excessive traffic from visitors or visits at unusual hours is a disturbance and violation of the Community Rules

In case of fire, evacuate the premises and call 911.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the emergency procedures posted in the building. If you have a maintenance emergency that could result in personal and/or property damage, contact management immediately.
Management reserves the right to exclude Resident’s guests from the community by giving such guests a trespass notice and advising Residents that such guests are no longer permitted at the Resident’s home or the community. A no-trespass notice may be given for persons or guests that formerly lived at the community, or were visitors at the community, and were asked to vacate by Management or if such guests pose or are reasonably believed to pose a danger to the health, safety, morals, or quiet enjoyment of the community or employees of Management.
Guests must be accompanied by the host adult Resident when using any of the facilities. Management exercises the right to limit/prohibit guests.

Generally, there is no charge for repairs and maintenance; however, if the repair is above normal wear and tear or due to Resident negligence or misuse, the Resident will be assessed the cost of repair and labor.
