As a result of our experience in property management, we have found that our residents desire the following rules and regulations. They are designed to insure the maximum enjoyment and privacy of all residents, to preserve the character and maintenance of buildings and grounds, and to develop a good enduring relationship between the residents and the management.

The failure of the resident to observe and fulfill any of the above obligations shall result in a termination of the Lease by the Management with resident remaining liable for rent and other obligations during the term of the lease.
