Inside Your Unit

The interior of your unit is your responsibility to maintain. This includes plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems in or outside your unit that serve just your unit. You also need to take care of your balcony or patio and your screen door. You are prohibited from doing anything inside or outside your unit that will change the exterior appearance of the building. Please take the time to read the rules and regulations included in this book for your information.

Pest Control

It is the owner’s responsibility to make sure that the unit is maintained in a clean and habitable condition. Pest extermination for roaches, silverfish, etc., is provided by the Association. To schedule extermination, contact the site office. Pest Control is provided to you by the Association at no charge to you.  You must, however, schedule the service through the Association office. 

Pets

No animals or reptiles of any kind may be raised, bred, or kept in any unit except small dogs, cats, and caged birds. Pets must be registered with the onsite office, and must be registered and inoculated as required by law. Pets are not permitted on the common elements unless under the control of an adult and carried or leashed. Pet owners are responsible for damage to common areas and disturbances to neighbors their pet may cause. Landlords are responsible for the actions of their tenants.

Major In-Unit Alterations

Owners may renovate, improve, or alter their units, provided that such renovation does not disturb or remove any structural or load-bearing wall within your unit.

Insurance

A master insurance policy is provided by the Association. If you need a certificate of insurance for your mortgage company, see the site office for the phone number to call at our insurance company.

Keys

The Bylaws require that each owner supply the Association with a working set of keys for emergency access and to perform other necessary duties. The keys are not a lock-out service, however, if you have provided the office with a key, the on-site manager can give you access to your unit during office hours. If your front and rear doors are keyed differently, you may want to provide both keys to the office in case an emergency blocks one door.

Mailbox keys are solely the responsibility of the Unit Owner. Neither the Association nor the Postal Service has a key for your individual mailbox. If your key is lost, the safest recourse is to replace the mailbox lock using the services of a locksmith.

Condominium Fees

The condominium fees, also known as condominium assessments, are your share of the cost of the common expenses: the repair, replacement, and maintenance of what are known as the "common elements" and payment of common utilities and Talltree South's share of the costs of the swimming pool. The "common elements" include the external grounds and parking lots, and the shared portions of the buildings such as the roofs and hallways. The condominium documents include a complete, legal definition of the common elements. A budget is prepared yearly and is provided to each unit owner.
