Your assistance in reporting violators of these Rules & Regulations is requested.
POLITE COMMUNICATION AND CONSIDERATE COOPERATION IS REQUIRED AMONG ALL RESIDENTS.
TRASH. No trash or food will be left out to cause a visual mess, an odor or attract pests anywhere on the premises - inside or outside. All trash will be separated into recyclable and other waste, and will be placed in the trash and recycling bins provided outside. The bins will be taken to and from the street according to the pick-up schedule established by the city. Tenant agrees to provide pest control inside the dwelling unit, as needed. Any infestation shall constitute a default of this Agreement.
CLEANLINESS. All cookware and dishes must be washed and put away immediately after use. Leftover food must be properly stored / put away in refrigerator immediately. If you drop it, spill it or make it dirty, clean it up. All residents must cooperate with one another so that the space for storage of personal items in common areas is fairly divided. Each roomer is responsible for the cleanliness of his/her own room. All must share in keeping the bathroom, kitchen and other common areas clean. Occasional use of a drain cleaner (such as Drano) if a drain begins to slow down, is considered routine cleaning/maintenance to be done by Roomers, in order to avoid a more serious stoppage of the plumbing.
Roomer will not invite any more than two guests into the dwelling unit at any time, and then only for a short period of time that does not interfere with other Tenants' quiet enjoyment of the premises. A guest may only be present when the Roomer is present, and will never be given the entrance door code or room key.
