- Per paragraph 12C of the condominium Declarations, “No nuisances shall be allowed upon the Condominium Property, nor any use or practice that is the source of annoyance to residents or which interferes with the peaceful possession and proper use of the property by its residents.”
- Maintenance & Repair. Unit Owners and residents are required to maintain the interior of the unit at all times in a manner, which would prevent the development of mold, mildew, or similar toxic growth. Each unit owner will promptly perform all maintenance and repair work within his or her unit that, if omitted, would affect any common elements, any portion of the Condominium belonging to other owners, or the condominium project as a whole. This duty of inspection, maintenance and repair includes the personal property within each owner’s unit, including but not limited to HVAC systems, refrigerators, dishwashers, compactors, disposal, oven and stove, clothes washers and dryers, hot water heaters, and interior electrical and plumbing fixtures such as toilets, showers, tubs. Each unit owner will responsible for all damages and liabilities that any failure to maintain or repair these items may cause.
- Equipment Inspection and Failure. Unit Owners and residents are also required to inspect all appliances, and all related hoses and connections, on a regular basis in order to ensure that these are all in proper working order, and in order to prevent any leaks or other incidents which could cause damage to the condominium property. Equipment shall be used only for the purposes intended. Failure of any equipment shall be reported immediately to the association management regardless of the responsibility for maintenance in order that proper precautions may be taken to avoid damage of other equipment. Each unit owner shall be liable for all damage caused by misuse of equipment by the residents or guests of the owner’s unit.
- Running Water. Water will not be kept running for an unreasonable and unnecessary length of time.
- Water Shutoff. Unit owners MUST turn off the water to their unit if the unit is going to be vacant for more than 48 hours. If the unit is managed by a rental management company, then that owner’s contract with the management company must require an inspection at least every 48 hours if unit is vacant. (Leaving water on when there is no one in the unit that would notice a leak has been considered negligence by Florida courts. Florida Statute 718.111(11)(j) allows the association to charge the unit owner who has not complied with this rule the full cost of repairing damage due to a water leak stemming from their unit. Furthermore, owners must remember to turn the power off to the water heater as well. Should you or your management company need assistance, you may contact Owner Services
- Air Conditioning. When the air conditioning unit is operating, windows and doors are to be kept closed. Not only is this an economically sound practice but will reduce the admitting of moisture in the warm air and the resulting dampness and mildew in the unit. The air conditioning should be operated at all times practicable, and units that are unoccupied should have the air conditioning set to 78 degrees or cooler to prevent mold. This will help prevent the growth of mold and mildew caused by moisture in the unit.
- Unit Damage. Unit Owners or residents causing damage to any property in the condominium by reason of the installation, operation, neglect, or failure or breakage of any item, appliance, lines, or equipment located in his unit (including fixtures), as a result of the owner’s failure to properly maintain the item or equipment, or failure to comply with the requirements of these rules and regulations, shall be strictly liable to the owner of any other unit damaged, and to the Association as to the common elements or any unit components for which the Association is responsible, for all damages caused, without regard to the negligence or fault of the owner from whose unit the cause of the damage originated.
- Common Elements Damage. Unit Owners are responsible for damage, to the Common Elements or Limited Common Elements, caused by them, their renters, and others authorized by them or their renters to be on Association property. Necessary repairs to damaged Common Elements or Limited Common Elements shall be billed to the Unit Owner determined to have been responsible by the Association. Prompt payment is expected. Delay in payments will require the Association to institute appropriate collection procedures.
- Repairs or Replacement. If a unit owner or resident contends that the Association is responsible for the repair or replacement of any portion of the unit or limited common elements appurtenant to a unit, or any personal property located therein, such unit owner must immediately notify the Association of the occurrence of any such damage and allow the Association to inspect this damage before any repairs are undertaken. If emergency repairs must be undertaken before the Association can inspect such damage, the unit owner must take all possible steps to preserve any evidence relating to the damage by taking photographs and otherwise documenting the nature and cause of the damage. The owner must obtain at least two, and preferably three competitive bids or proposals, before seeking to hold the Association responsible for any costs incurred. Such bids and proposals must be retained by the unit owner and provided to the Association in connection with any claim.
- Owner’s Contact & Insurance. Each Unit Owner must provide the Association with emergency contact information, including persons other than the owner who can be contacted in the event of any emergency. Unit Owners must provide the Association with proof of insurance which the owner is required to maintain with regard to losses or damages affecting his unit, as well as with the name and telephone number of the insurance agent or the owner(s). Additionally, Unit Owners (or their guests), as well as contractors, must provide proof of liability insurance to the association prior to completing any repairs or renovations to their units.
- Interior Alterations. No interior of a Condominium Unit shall be altered in any manner as such would have any effect on the structural elements of the building or its electrical, mechanical, plumbing, or air conditioning systems or on any of the Common or Limited Common Elements without the proper written consent of the Association.
