Important Landlord Information

If you are an owner who leases your unit, we would like to make the leasing experience successful and positive for everyone by informing you of your responsibilities. This will help preserve your property value specifically and maintain the association's property value in general.

Your tenants may not be familiar with common-interest community living. Please take a few minutes to explain to them that living in a community association is very different from living in a rental apartment community. Specifically, your tenants, like all residents, are subject to the rules and regulations of the association, and it's up to you to educate them and see that they comply. The association will assist you in this area, but the responsibility lies with you. We recommend you provide your tenants with written copies of all policies and rules and advise them on the proper use of the association's facilities. You can obtain copies of these and other useful documents from your Association's website. Any violations of your tenants are your financial responsibility, so any violation fines will be YOUR responsibility.

We strongly recommend that you have a written lease agreement with your tenant. As a lessor (landlord) of a home in a community association, the lease you use must require tenants to comply with the Association's governing documents. In the event your tenant fails to comply with these documents, including the bylaws, or its rules and regulations, a representative of the association will first contact you in an attempt to remedy the problem. The association will also in certain situations, send you a copy of any notice sent to your tenant. You are ultimately the responsible party for your unit and the people in it. If your tenants do not follow the rules, it is the owner of the unit that will be fined in accordance with the rules and regulations.

We would also recommend that your tenant obtain a rental insurance policy.

If the tenant does not correct the violation, the association will contact you and expect you to remedy the violation using the recourse available to you through your lease agreement. If you are unable to correct the violation, the association may pursue appropriate legal action you.

The association asks that you provide the manager with the names and contact information of your tenants. This information will be used in case of emergency.

Follow these simple steps and you, the tenants and the Association will all have a positive Community Association living experience:

  • Provide your tenants with copies of Association rules.
  • Educate tenants about the need to follow Association rules, and see that they comply.
  • Advise tenants on the proper use of Association facilities.
  • Use a written lease agreement.
  • Make sure your lease requires tenants to comply with all Association governing documents.
  • Provide the Association with contact information for your tenants.
