Property Rules & Policies

  • Satellite dishes and antennas are prohibited for all apartment buildings. For houses or townhouses ONLY, a dish may be placed on a pole in the yard behind the building.
     
  • Any changes to the property, other than hanging curtains or pictures, requires approval.
     
  • All persons living in the home must be approved and listed on the lease.
     
  • All vehicles parked on the property must have current registration, be in good working condition (NO broken/missing parts, substandard repairs, or body damage bigger than a baseball) and be parked in a designated parking space. Some properties require a parking permit or have assigned parking spaces. Vehicles not meeting these requirements will be towed at owner expense without warning.
  • Illegal activity is prohibited on the property and is grounds for lease termination.
     
  • The property must be used as a primary residence and not a business. Home businesses that require customers to visit the property are prohibited.
     
  • No loitering is allowed in the common areas or on the grounds of the property.
     
  • Per Ohio law, no smoking is allowed in the common areas. Smoking inside of apartments is allowed only if the resident has agreed to pay the Smoking Fee.
     
  • Exterior doors leading to common hallways and garage doors must remain closed and locked at all times. Doors must not be propped open.
  • At properties with boiler heat, we maintain a temperature within 68deg to 72deg during the winter. Residents who prefer a higher temperature may supplement the heat with a newer "ceramic" type space heater set to "low" and plugged directly to an outlet (no extension cords).
  • Grills, firepits, and other open flame devices are prohibited.

The postmark date or the date on the check, whichever is later, determines whether the payment is on-time.
