Landlords and Tenants

A number of the owners at Talltree South have decided to rent their units. This section highlights a few of the responsibilities of landlords and tenants.

Tenant Education

Landlords must make their tenants aware of all rules and regulations of the Association before they move in. This includes, but is not limited to, providing them with the most recent copy of the Handbook and making them aware of this website.

Lease Agreement

Landlords must file a copy of their lease agreement with the Association office. The lease must include the following addendum:

"Lessee hereby acknowledges that he has read and understands the Fairfax Heritage X (TallTree South) Amended Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and Board Resolutions. Lessee agrees to abide by above documents and other rules regulations, and resolutions promulgated by the TallTree South Association or Board of Directors. Failure to abide will constitute a breach of this lease and will be cause for eviction."

Tenant Registration

Landlords must register their tenants with the Association. Tenant registration forms are available from the Association office. The Association must be provided with the names and contact information for all people living in the unit.

Just think: If there were a fire, we would need to make sure that everyone got out.

Change Notices

A form must be submitted when there is a change in tenants, an address or phone number change for you, or a change in agents who may be managing your property. Change notices are available from the Association office.

Landlord Address and Phone

If you are a landlord, you must provide your current address and daytime and evening telephone numbers and cell phone numbers to the Association to ensure that all notices from the Association reach you directly and that you can be reached in case of emergency.

Non-receipt of an invoice or payment coupon does not relieve you of the obligation to pay an assessment or charge by the due date.

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. Read more ...
