Parking & Vehicle Information

All residents must register their cars with the rental office and may be required to demonstrate proof of vehicle insurance depending on the policy of the property.  Resident(s) shall maintain insurance that covers loss and damage to resident’s personal property and/or vehicle and provides liability insurance coverage to adequately cover any claims of other personal property that could cause liability claims. Cars that are parked illegally or in restricted areas or violate the policies below will be towed away at the owner’s expense.

 Below are some regulations specific to the type of parking available at your property.  For all types of parking, the use of the garage by resident(s) is solely at the risk of resident(s).  Management is not responsible for any damage or injury that is done to resident(s) or his/her property, guests, invitees, or other third parties invited to the community by resident or their property.  Management’s insurance does not provide any coverage or compensation to resident(s) for loss or damage to personal property, casualty, or other harms that are not management’s fault.  Management is not responsible for the actions of, or for any damages, injury, or harm caused by third parties (such as other residents, guests, intruders or trespassers) who are not under management’s control.

 INDIVIDUAL RESIDENT GARAGES (if applicable)

Garage doors must be kept closed and locked at all times except when moving vehicle in or out of the garage. Garages are to be used exclusively for the storage of a motor vehicle.  The garages are not intended or rented for use as general storage space for personal property furnishings, appliances, boxes, or miscellaneous personal property.  Residents are specifically prohibited from storing any flammable, combustible, hazardous or other illegal, stolen, or regulated or dangerous materials in the garage.  Storage of propane gas containers, firearms, toxic chemicals, gasoline, kerosene, camp stoves, illegal, stolen, dangerous, regulated, or hazardous materials in garage, or report of storage of such materials, is grounds for management to enter the garage, or to give law enforcement or other governmental authorities access to the garage, and confiscate items without prior written notice. Residents may not use, run or maintain electricity in or to the garage or attempt to heat the garage in any manner.

 Management advises resident that the rental of a garage space is solely for purpose of parking a motorized vehicle such as a car or motorcycle, a boat, a trailer, a bicycle, or like vehicle that can safely be exposed to temperature changes, water, and the elements.  Management hereby advises resident that the garage spaces are not waterproof and that it is possible, and at times likely, that water may get into the garage space by roof leaks and/or through the bottom of the garage space during heavy rains or at other high water times.  Resident(s) specifically agree(s) and acknowledge(s) that resident(s) may not store any other personal belongings such as boxes of personal items, furniture, appliances, etc., in the garage.  If a resident does store any personal belongings in a garage space in violation of this agreement, that storage is strictly at the resident’s sole risk.  Residents shall be responsible for any damages, whether or not the fault of resident, caused by resident’s vehicle or personal property in the garage area.  For example, should the vehicle of resident catch on fire and damage the garage or the property of other residents, resident shall be responsible for damage.

 Residents may not conduct any business activity, including any “garage sales” in the garage space. Residents may not do repair or service work on resident’s auto, or any other auto or equipment in garage. Residents, resident’s guests, children, visitors or other may not use the garage for purposes other than parking a vehicle.  Social and recreational activities are not permitted in garages.  Example:  Resident may not use the garage as a gathering space, “man cave,” exercise or sports space (i.e., no bouncing balls off the walls).

 Resident agrees to periodically inspect and maintain the garage.  Resident shall inspect the garage immediately after any severe weather event, including lengthy periods of precipitation, with other inspections to occur on at least a monthly basis, and to report any repair or service request to management.  Failure by resident to inspect the garage on at least a monthly basis, and immediately following severe or lengthy wet weather, and to report any necessary work or service that results in damage to the garage or to any adjoining garage, property or area shall result in resident being responsible for any costs of repairs, service or damages.

 Residents shall notify management in writing of any condition that may cause injury, require repair, or affect the habitability of the garage.  Residents may not make efforts to “repair” door, springs, rollers or other of the garage. Residents may not install or attach any shelving, fixtures, or improvements or alterations to any wall, door, ceiling or other surface in the garage.  Any substance or activity that could stain or damage the garage floor, door or any other part of the structure is prohibited.

 Residents shall not park any vehicle in front of any garage at any time. Residents must remove snow from entry of garage within 24 hours after any snow or ice event.  Failure to remove snow from an area one foot in front of the length of the garage door may result in management’s staff removing the snow and billing Residents for these services.  Failure to remove snow and treat ice in a prompt manner can result in the garage door and closing mechanism freezing and the door or opening track system incurring damage, the repair of which will be of the resident’s financial responsibility for failure to comply with the terms of this paragraph.

 Residents will be furnished with one key to the garage space rented.  Resident may not duplicate the key provided.  Resident is not permitted to change the lock(s) or install any security or other devices without first obtaining written consent of the management and must furnish management with the keys for any changed lock and/or codes and/or operating device instructions prior to installation.  Resident is responsible to restore the garage to its original condition upon move out or as requested by management.  Resident will be charged for any additional keys or replacement keys.  If it is necessary for management to replace lock(s), resident agrees to pay these charges.

 Management shall have the right to enter resident’s garage space for purposes of performing inspection, conducting repairs, doing maintenance, or to show the garage to prospective tenants, buyers, lenders, insurers, or other inspectors.  Where building-wide inspections are being conducted, posted notice of inspections or notice delivered in any newsletter or flyer of management shall be sufficient.

 Resident must vacate the garage at the end of their lease term. Resident must leave the garage in a clean and undamaged condition, ordinary wear and tear accepted.  Extra cleaning, trash removal, sheet rock or door removal, or treatment required for stains on the garage concrete slab, will be charged to resident, and deducted from resident’s security deposit.

 If garages are rented separately from apartments at a property and there are not enough garages available for all of the residents, management reserves the right to restrict, limit, or terminate garage use if residents are not using a garage for an operable vehicle used on a regular basis for personal transportation.

 UNDERGROUND PARKING GARAGE REGULATIONS (if applicable)

 Management advises resident that the rental of a parking garage space is solely for purpose of parking a motorized vehicle such as a car or motorcycle, a boat, a trailer, a bicycle, or like vehicle that can safely be exposed to temperature changes, water, and the elements.  Management hereby advises resident that the parking garage spaces are not waterproof and that it is possible, and at times likely, that water may get into the garages through leaks or other means.  Resident(s) specifically agree(s) and acknowledge(s) that resident(s) may not store any other personal belongings such as boxes of personal items, furniture, appliances, etc., in the parking garage space.  If a resident does store any personal belongings in a garage space in violation of this agreement, that storage is strictly at the resident’s sole risk. 

 The use of the garage by resident(s) is solely at the risk of resident(s).  Management is not responsible for any damage or injury that is done to resident(s) or his/her property, guests, invitees, or other third parties invited to the community by resident or their property.  Management’s insurance does not provide any coverage or compensation to resident(s) for loss or damage to personal property, casualty, or other harms that are not management’s fault.  Management is not responsible for the actions of, or for any damages, injury, or harm caused by third parties (such as other residents, guests, intruders or trespassers) who are not under management’s control.

 Resident(s) shall maintain insurance that covers loss and damage to resident’s personal property and/or vehicle and provides liability insurance coverage to adequately cover any claims of other personal property that could cause liability claims.

 OUTSIDE PARKING LOT (if applicable)

 At some properties, residents are given assigned spaces in the outside parking lot and visitors are given designated spaces to park in.  Vehicles parked improperly in spaces assigned to other residents may be towed at the owner’s expense.

 If it snows over two inches, you are responsible for moving your vehicle to one of the cleared spaces.  Residents will receive only one written notice for the entire winter season.  Residents are not given snow removal notices with each snow event, but are expected to proactively make arrangements to remove their vehicles to allow proper plowing and clearing of the lot.  If you are absent from the property, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with another family member, or neighbor, or otherwise, to move your vehicle after any snow event to allow the lot to be plowed.  The snow removal contract limits the number of times a company will return to plow the lot per snowfall and will result in additional charges or higher fees, thereby resulting in higher rents.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

 Residents may not do repair or service work on resident’s auto, or any other auto or equipment in the parking lot. Residents, residents’ guests, children, visitors or other may not use the parking lot for purposes other than parking a vehicle.  Social and recreational activities are not permitted in any outdoor parking area.  Cars that have any fluid leaks must be removed and/or repaired at once so that fluids do not leak, stain, or damage surface parking areas.  You will be responsible for any treatment or repair from fluid leakage or damage caused by your vehicle.  Residents are also not allowed to wash or wax their cars in the outside parking lot. Any outside water source at a property is strictly reserved for landscaping, lawn watering or other use by management.

 Outdoor surface parking is available only for vehicles with current tabs, that are operable, and are regularly moved and in actual use.  Outdoor surface parking is not available for storage.  Individual properties may limit or restrict outdoor parking to use of standard vehicles and light duty trucks, and restrict or prohibit any commercial vehicles, oversized vehicles, vans or trucks that are not of standard size.

 At some properties management may add additional outdoor parking lot restrictions including, but not limited to, limiting the number of vehicles a household can park in the lot and requiring residents to display permits in order to park in the outdoor parking lot.
