LANDLORD’s compliance with or responding to any oral request regarding security or any other matters does not waive the strict requirement for written notices under this LEASE. TENANT must promptly notify LANDLORD in writing of: water leaks; mold; electrical problems; malfunctioning lights; broken or missing locks or latches; and other conditions that pose a hazard to property, health, or safety. LANDLORD may change or install utility lines or equipment serving the UNIT if the work is done reasonably without substantially increasing TENANT’s utility costs. LANDLORD may turn off equipment and interrupt utilities as needed to avoid property damage or to perform work. If utilities malfunction or are damaged by fire, water or similar cause, TENANT must notify LANDLORD’s representative immediately. If air conditioning or other equipment malfunctions, TENANT must notify LANDLORD’s representative as soon as possible on a business day. LANDLORD will act with customary diligence to make repairs and reconnections, taking into consideration when casualty insurance proceeds are received. RENT will not abate in whole or in part.
If LANDLORD believes in its sole judgment that damage is substantial, or that performance of needed repairs poses a danger to TENANT, LANDLORD may terminate this LEASE without liability by giving TENANT at least five (5) days written notice. LANDLORD may also remove personal property if it causes a health or safety hazard. If the LEASE is so terminated, LANDLORD will refund prorated RENT and all deposits, less lawful deductions.
29. CHANGES TO THE PROPERTY.
TENANT must obtain written permission from LANDLORD before TENANT makes any changes, improvements or additions to the UNIT. TENANT agrees that LANDLORD will not pay for changes made to the UNIT unless LANDLORD agreed in writing to pay for such changes.
30. LAUNDRY FACILITIES.
An individual washer and dryer are included in each UNIT. TENANT is responsible for cleaning lint trap after each dryer use to prevent fire or malfunction.
31. TAKING OF PRIVATE PROPERTY.
a) Legal authorities are able to take property after paying for it. This is known as "condemnation".
b) TENANT agrees that if the PROPERTY, part of the PROPERTY, or the land on which the PROPERTY is located are taken:
1) LANDLORD can end this LEASE;
2) LANDLORD is not responsible for claims of TENANT for inconvenience or loss of use of the PROPERTY or any part of the PROPERTY; and
3) TENANT, by signing this LEASE, has assigned to LANDLORD any rights which TENANT may have to any money paid by the legal authorities for or relating to the taking of the PROPERTY.
32. UNENFORCEABLE LEASE CONDITIONS.
If any court determines that any condition or part of this LEASE is illegal or unenforceable, the rest of the LEASE shall continue in full force and effect.
33. SALE OF PROPERTY.
In the event of the sale of the Property by LANDLORD to a new owner, the new owner can end this LEASE by giving TENANT 90 days written notice.
34. ASSIGNMENT BY LANDLORD.
LANDLORD may assign this LEASE. If assigned, TENANT's obligations shall continue in full force and effect to the new LANDLORD. The new LANDLORD will have all of the rights that the current LANDLORD has under this LEASE. Upon assignment of the LEASE by LANDLORD to another party, LANDLORD is expressly released from all obligations under the LEASE. LANDLORD may transfer this LEASE without obtaining TENANT’s approval. TENANT MAY NOT ASSIGN ITS RIGHTS UNDER THE LEASE WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF LANDLORD, WHICH CONSENT LANDLORD MAY WITHHOLD FOR ANY REASON.
35. SECURITY DEVICES.
LANDLORD is NOT obligated to furnish security personnel, security lighting, security gates or fences, or other forms of security and LANDLORD can discontinue any such items at any time without notice.
36. DEFAULT BY TENANT.
TENANT shall be in default of this LEASE if TENANT:
a) fails to pay RENT or any other charges when due; or
b) does anything which is not permitted by this LEASE;
c) fails to do anything which is required by this LEASE; or
d) gives LANDLORD false information, including information or signatures on TENANT’s or the Guarantor’s/Co- signers rental application, on the LEASE or on the GUARANTEE; or
e) any of the utilities which are payable by TENANT or the other tenants of the UNIT are not paid in a timely manner or are disconnected or shut-off; or
f) TENANT fails to pay any fine within 10 days after it is levied in accordance with this LEASE or the Rules and Regulations.
37. LANDLORD'S RIGHTS.
LANDLORD shall have the following rights in addition to any other rights of LANDLORD under this LEASE or applicable law.
a) If TENANT breaks any condition of this LEASE, any Addendum to this LEASE, or the Rules and Regulations, LANDLORD can:
(i) collect any past due RENT and utility payments and
any sums which are due for the rest of the TERM from TENANT;
(ii) collect from TENANT for damages caused by TENANT or TENANT's breaking of any conditions of the LEASE or TENANT's doing of any act which is not permitted by the LEASE;
(iii) evict TENANT and take possession of the UNIT;
(iv) recover or file suit to recover:
(a) all RENT and additional charges which are due from TENANT;
(b) reimbursement for any damages; and,
(c) reasonable costs and expenses which are incurred by LANDLORD to enforce this LEASE, including, to the extent permitted by law, court costs, collection costs and attorneys' fees.
b) These are not the only rights LANDLORD has if TENANT breaks this LEASE. Besides ending this LEASE and getting a court order to evict TENANT, LANDLORD can sue TENANT for unpaid RENT and other damages, losses or injuries.
If LANDLORD obtains a money judgment against TENANT, LANDLORD may use the court process or any other available process to take TENANT'S personal goods, furniture, motor vehicles and other assets to the maximum extent allowed by law.
38. FIRE OR OTHER CASUALTY. If in LANDLORD’S reasonable judgment, the UNIT, the Bedroom, or the PROPERTY is materially damaged by fire or other casualty, LANDLORD may terminate this LEASE within a reasonable time after such determination by giving TENANT written notice of such termination. If LANDLORD does terminate the LEASE, and TENANT did not cause the loss, LANDLORD will refund prorated, prepaid RENT and the SECURITY DEPOSIT, less lawful deductions. If LANDLORD determines that material damage has not been caused to the UNIT, the Bedroom or the PROPERTY, or, if LANDLORD has elected not to terminate this LEASE, LANDLORD will, within a reasonable time, rebuild the damaged improvements, and, except as otherwise provided by law, this LEASE shall remain in full force and effect.
39. INTENTIONALLY DELETED.
40. OTHER REMEDIES.
In addition to all of LANDLORD’s other rights and remedies under Oklahoma law and this LEASE, if TENANT’s RENT is delinquent and LANDLORD gives TENANT 5 days’ prior written notice, LANDLORD may terminate electricity that LANDLORD has furnished at LANDLORD’S expense, unless applicable law provides otherwise. LANDLORD may report unpaid amounts to credit agencies. If TENANT defaults and moves out early, TENANT will pay LANDLORD any amounts stated to be rental amounts in Paragraph 3 for the entire TERM, in addition to other sums due. Upon TENANT’s default, LANDLORD reserves all other available legal remedies, including LEASE termination. Late charges are liquidated damages for LANDLORD’S time, inconvenience, and overhead in collecting late RENT (but are not for attorney’s fees and litigation costs). TENANT must pay all collection-agency fees if TENANT fails to pay all sums due within
10 days after LANDLORD mails TENANT a letter demanding payment and stating that collection agency fees will be added if TENANT fails to pay all sums by that deadline. LANDLORD may accelerate RENT (see Paragraph 47).
41. ENDING THE LEASE.
a) This LEASE will end at the time and date listed in Paragraph 2. LANDLORD may not extend the term of this LEASE without the written consent of TENANT. TENANT may not extend the term of this LEASE without the written consent of LANDLORD. Failure to vacate the UNIT at the end of LEASE shall be a violation of this LEASE.
b) If LANDLORD fails to repair or remedy a condition for which it is obligated, by law, to repair or remedy, TENANT may pursue remedies under Oklahoma law, including the possibility of terminating this LEASE, by following this procedure:
(1) TENANT must make a written request for repair or remedy of the condition – after which LANDLORD shall have a reasonable time for repair or remedy;
(2) if LANDLORD fails to do so, TENANT must make a second written request for the repair or remedy (to make sure that there has been no miscommunication) – after which LANDLORD will have a reasonable time for the repair or remedy; and
c) If TENANT does not vacate the UNIT upon expiration of the TERM, TENANT shall pay, in addition to the normal RENT, an additional charge of $200.00 per day until TENANT vacates. This additional charge is due for each day that TENANT stays in possession of the UNIT after expiration of the TERM. Nothing contained in this LEASE shall give TENANT the right to remain in possession of the UNIT following expiration of the TERM.
42. EARLY TERMINATION.
Except as otherwise expressly stated in this LEASE, and excepting cases of default by TENANT, this LEASE may not be terminated early unless it is agreed to in writing by both LANDLORD and TENANT. LANDLORD has no obligation to terminate this LEASE early. If LANDLORD agrees to any early termination of this LEASE, a termination charge may apply as part of any such agreement as specified by LANDLORD and must be paid before the LEASE is officially terminated. The Application Fee is never refundable.
REPLACEMENT RESIDENT. If departing or remaining tenants find a replacement tenant acceptable to LANDLORD and LANDLORD expressly consents to the replacement, or assignment, then a termination fee of $500 will be due, a rekeying fee will be due if rekeying is requested or required and TENANT must have no outstanding payments due.
Procedures for Replacement. If LANDLORD approves a replacement tenant, then the replacement tenant must sign a new lease contract. Unless LANDLORD agrees otherwise in writing, TENANT’s SECURITY DEPOSIT will automatically transfer to the replacement tenant as of the date LANDLORD approves such LEASE assignment. The departing tenant will no longer have a right to occupancy or in the case of a LEASE assignment, a SECURITY DEPOSIT refund. The replacement is not considered complete until the replacement lease contract is approved by LANDLORD and all fees are received.
UNLAWFUL EARLY MOVE-OUT. TENANT will be liable for a
$500 termination fee, in addition to all RENT, fees, and other charges due during the TERM, if TENANT:
(1) fails to move in, or fails to give written move-out notice;
(2) moves out without paying RENT in full for the entire TERM or renewal period;
(3) moves out at LANDLORD’s demand because of TENANT’s default; or
(4) is evicted.
NOT A RELEASE. The termination charge is not a cancellation fee or buyout fee. It is a liquidated amount covering only part of LANDLORD’s damages; that is, LANDLORD’s time, effort and expense in finding and/or processing a replacement. These damages are uncertain and difficult to ascertain—particularly those relating to make ready, inconvenience, paperwork, advertising, showing the UNIT, utilities for showing, checking prospects, overhead, marketing costs, and locator-service fees. TENANT agrees that the termination charge is a reasonable estimate of such damages and that the charge is due whether or not LANDLORD’s attempts to find a replacement are successful. Except as otherwise provided by law, the termination charge does not release TENANT from continued liability for: future or past-due RENT; charges for cleaning, repairing, repainting, unreturned keys, or other sums due. TENANT is expected to return the UNIT to the condition in which possession was taken in order to avoid incurring damage charges. LANDLORD will inspect the UNIT after TENANT vacates to assess damages and make any necessary repairs to the UNIT before a replacement TENANT moves in.
TENANT may not transfer this LEASE or sublet the UNIT, nor any part of the UNIT without LANDLORD’s prior written approval which may be granted or withheld in LANDLORD’s sole and absolute discretion.
If TENANT permits another person to live in UNIT or provides key to a person not named on this LEASE, TENANT will be subject to a $1,000 fine.
44. LEAVING THE UNIT.
DEPOSIT RETURN, SURRENDER, AND ABANDONMENT.
LANDLORD will mail TENANT’s SECURITY DEPOSIT refund
(less lawful deductions) and an itemized accounting of any deductions no later than 45 days after the termination of the tenancy, delivery of possession, and written demand therefore by the TENANT, which request shall provide TENANT’s new address.
TENANT will have surrendered the UNIT when: (1) the move-out date has passed and no one is living in the UNIT in LANDLORD’S reasonable judgment; or (2) all UNIT keys and access devices have been turned in where RENT is paid—whichever date occurs first.
TENANT will have abandoned the UNIT when all of the following have occurred: (1) all tenants appear to have moved out of the UNIT in LANDLORD’s reasonable judgment, and have been absent for at least seven (7) days; (2) clothes, furniture, and personal belongings have been substantially removed in LANDLORD’s reasonable judgment; (3) TENANT has been in default for non-payment of RENT for at least ten (10) days; and
(4) TENANT has not responded for five (5) days to LANDLORD’S notice left on the outside of the main entry door and mailed to TENANT, stating that LANDLORD considers the UNIT abandoned. A UNIT may also be “abandoned” as specified by applicable statute.
If TENANT abandons the UNIT, LANDLORD may take possession of the UNIT and its contents. LANDLORD may dispose of the contents in accordance with applicable statute and re-rent the UNIT without obligation to TENANT. Unless otherwise provided by law, TENANT must pay the cost for removal and other associated costs.
If LANDLORD sells the contents, TENANT will be credited with the actual amount received, less the cost of removal and sale. LANDLORD may destroy or otherwise dispose of some or all of the contents if LANDLORD reasonably determines that the value of the contents is so low that the cost of moving, storage and conducting a public sale exceeds the amount that would be realized from the sale.
TENANT must still pay the RENT for the entire TERM.
45. TENANT'S DUTIES AT END OF THE LEASE.
In addition to any other duties which TENANT has under this LEASE, TENANT will:
a) leave the UNIT when the LEASE ends and return all keys and access devices/remotes to LANDLORD;
b) return the UNIT:
1) clean and free of garbage or trash; and
2) in good order and repair, reasonable wear and tear excepted; and
c) comply with all other terms of this LEASE.
TENANT may be present at the time of the move-out inspection at the end of the TERM, if requested. TENANT must contact management to schedule an appointment for the inspection at least seven (7) days prior to the move out date assigned on page 1 of this LEASE.
46. SECURITY DEPOSIT TERMS.
a) Before moving into the UNIT, TENANT must pay the SECURITY DEPOSIT amount listed in Paragraph 5.
b) TENANT may not apply or use the SECURITY DEPOSIT for payment of RENT under the LEASE.
c) TENANT agrees that during the TERM or prior to returning the SECURITY DEPOSIT to the TENANT, LANDLORD may decide to use all or part of the SECURITY DEPOSIT:
1) to pay for damages caused by TENANT to the UNIT and/or the PROPERTY; and/or
2) to pay for any unpaid RENT or additional charges owing to LANDLORD.
If during the TERM all or part of the SECURITY DEPOSIT is used in the manner described above or for any other reason as permitted by law, TENANT will immediately deposit with LANDLORD the
amount needed to replenish the SECURITY DEPOSIT to equal the amount listed in Paragraph 5.
See Paragraph 43.
d) A copy of the move-out procedures, which detail the cleaning and UNIT standards as well as the potential charges, may be obtained from LANDLORD at TENANT’s request. TENANT is responsible for cleaning the UNIT, including all Common Areas, thoroughly and following all of LANDLORD’s cleaning instructions prior to move-out. If TENANT does not clean UNIT to LANDLORD’s specifications then LANDLORD will charge TENANT a reasonable fee for the cleaning of the UNIT. If UNIT is furnished, TENANT will be responsible for the cost, if any, for relocating the furniture in the UNIT to the appropriate place within the UNIT. Common Area damages will be split amongst all tenants in the UNIT. Bedroom damages will be split amongst all tenants who have leases for that specific bedroom.
e) A fifteen percent (15%) administrative charge will be added to all damage/cleaning/painting charges to the UNIT when resulting from damages caused by tenants. Charges for damages may occur at any time during the TERM.
The SECURITY DEPOSIT will not be LANDLORD’s limit of damages if TENANT violates this LEASE, and TENANT may be liable for damages in excess of the SECURITY DEPOSIT. Among other items, the cost of labor and materials for cleaning and repairs, in excess of “normal wear” and the amount of delinquent payments of RENT and other charges, and late charges, may be deducted by LANDLORD from the SECURITY DEPOSIT.
All monthly RENT for the rest of the LEASE contract will be accelerated automatically without notice or demand (before or after acceleration) and will be immediately due and delinquent if TENANT is evicted from the UNIT or abandons the UNIT.
48. LOSS OF LANDLORD'S RIGHTS.
LANDLORD does not give up or waive any rights by accepting RENT or any additional charges, or by delaying or not enforcing any term or condition of this LEASE.
49. NO JURY TRIAL.
To the extent permitted by law, LANDLORD and TENANT hereby waive their right to a jury trial in any lawsuit involving this LEASE.
50. WRITTEN CHANGES TO THE LEASE.
All of the promises and understandings between LANDLORD and TENANT are contained in this LEASE. There are no other promises or understandings between the parties. Any changes to this LEASE require writing and signature by LANDLORD and TENANT, or written notice delivered to TENANT 30 days prior to LEASE change effective date. Neither LANDLORD nor any of LANDLORD’s representatives have the authority to make any oral promises, representations or agreements. This LEASE is the entire agreement between LANDLORD and TENANT. LANDLORD’s representatives have no authority to waive, amend, or terminate this LEASE or any part of it, unless in writing and signed by LANDLORD, and no authority to make promises, representations or agreements that impose security duties or other obligations on LANDLORD or LANDLORD’S representatives shall be binding on LANDLORD unless in writing and signed by LANDLORD.

CORE Norman, LLC
STATE ON CAMPUS – RULES AND REGULATIONS ADDENDUM
The following RULES AND REGULATIONS are a binding part of TENANT’S LEASE. LANDLORD provides these RULES AND REGULATIONS for TENANT’S benefit and the benefit of the other tenants. Please understand that any violation of one of these RULES AND REGULATIONS by TENANT or TENANT’S guest constitutes a violation of this LEASE and LANDLORD may proceed with an eviction action or other legal proceedings provided for under this LEASE and provided by law. Defined terms used herein, which are not otherwise defined herein, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this LEASE.
TENANT Accountability: The PROPERTY operates in a fun, yet adult atmosphere where most tenants will never find themselves involved with a disciplinary action. The majority of those who do require disciplinary attention will simply need a verbal warning. For those persons whose behavior is such that it requires further attention, any or all of the following may occur: A private meeting with the Property Manager, a written warning (with copies placed in file and sent to guarantors), restriction from areas or events, relocation within the community, fines, eviction or criminal and/or civil prosecution.
Violations of these RULES AND REGULATIONS will result in tenant fines as follows:
FIRST: A written warning in the form of a first breach of rental agreement will be issued to the TENANT stating the first breach. SECOND: A $100 charge will be assessed against the TENANT.
THIRD: A $250 charge will be assessed against the TENANT. FOURTH: Possible Eviction
Fines are never split amongst all TENANTS but may be assessed individually in their full amount to each TENANT of a UNIT in instances where more than one TENANT has been involved in a RULES AND REGULATIONS violation. The fines above may be increased at Manager’s discretion and manager may elect to EVICT TENANT for ANY SINGLE VIOLATION OF THE RULES AND REGULATION should manager reasonably believe the infraction was severe enough to warrant such action. ALL VIOLATIONS REGARDING THE THROWING OF ITEMS OFF BALCONIES OR FROM WINDOWS, THE TAMPERING OF LIFE SAFETY EQUIPMENT, or FIGHTING CARRY AN IMMEDIATE $1,000 FINE AND POSSIBLE EVICTION. Fines will double and/or
result in eviction in the event the TENANT is found to have lied to or deceived the LANDLORD when discussing the details of a lease violation.
The Common Areas or certain parts of the Common Areas of the PROPERTY may be monitored by either recorded or live surveillance devices. Any person or persons engaging in illegal activities, damaging actions, and/or vandalism may be subject to prosecution under Oklahoma statutes and legal action by LANDLORD. No cameras exist in any restroom or tanning bed room. These Common Areas are the only areas, besides the UNIT, on the PROPERTY where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy.
WINDOWS, DOORS & WINDOW COVERINGS
Windows and doors shall not be obstructed, and use of foil or other similar materials over windows is prohibited. If LANDLORD provides blinds on windows, TENANT may not remove such blinds. If TENANT installs draperies over the blinds, any damage will be repaired by TENANT or at TENANT’S expense. No article, sign, poster, decoration or thing may be hung or placed on the outside of a UNIT, or displayed on the inside of UNIT so as to be visible from the outside of UNIT. Screens, if provided, must remain permanently in place at all times and should never be removed. Nothing shall be thrown out of the windows.
Damage to property, including but not limited to paint, plaster, walls, appliances, doors, cabinets, carpet, floors or furniture, or damage to any part of the UNIT caused by leaving windows or doors open during inclement weather will be the responsibility of TENANT.
BALCONIES AND PATIOS
Balcony and patio areas (both front and rear) are to be kept clean and orderly. They are not to be used as storage areas and articles must not be hung over railings. No trash may be kept on balconies or patios at any time. Kegs are prohibited on the PROPERTY and within the UNIT, they are not to be permitted on balconies or patios. Additional lights are not permitted on the balconies or patios. Only bona fide patio furniture may be kept on balconies or patios. Only 1/3 of balcony space may be covered by patio furniture. TENANT hereby acknowledges that all gas and charcoal barbecue grills, patio torches, fire pits and chimneys are strictly prohibited on balconies and patios. It is agreed that LANDLORD shall have the right to remove barbecue grills and any other of TENANT’S personal items or to remove and dispose of rubbish left on any outdoor porch or in the yard at TENANT’S sole expense. There will be a $100.00 fine for each bag of trash for small debris removed from the balcony and $100 per large item that requires removal from the balcony. The TENANT further agrees that they will be responsible for any property damage or bodily injury liabilities and responsibilities arising from any violation of this rule. LANDLORD reserves the right to remove and discard any items stored in the balcony or patio area that is not permitted. Balcony fines will be assessed to the entire UNIT unless it can be proven that the belongings in violation are the sole responsibility of one or a fraction of the TENANTS occupying said UNIT.
Throwing objects from balconies, windows, sliding glass window/wall or any other area of the building are strictly prohibited. TENANT understands that in the event that ANY items are thrown from UNIT balcony or windows, TENANT will be subject to an immediate $1,000 fine and potential eviction and shall be subject to criminal prosecution. Items which may fall from the balcony are not allowed on the balcony and therefore any object which falls from a balcony will be treated the same as any that were thrown. Any investigation of alleged incidents will be reported to the TENANT’s school and the applicable authorities. In the event of abuse of the balcony or violation of this rule, LANDLORD reserves the right to secure the balcony door so that TENANT may not access the balcony.
NO SOLICITATION OR DISTRIBUTION OF MATERIALS
TENANT(S) may not distribute, post or hang any signs or notices in any portion of the PROPERTY, without written approval from LANDLORD. Solicitation shall not be permitted at the PROPERTY, either by TENANT or others.
LOCKS AND KEYS
Locks may not be changed or added by TENANT without prior written permission of LANDLORD. Locks must be left in place upon vacating the UNIT. LANDLORD must have keys to all changed locks. All keys and, if applicable, gate cards, fobs and remotes must be returned to LANDLORD upon termination of occupancy, or LANDLORD may charge actual replacement costs plus a 15% administrative fee.
If TENANT finds it necessary to have authorized personnel unlock UNIT or Bedroom, a $25.00 fee will apply after office hours, payable at the time service is rendered. LANDLORD will furnish TENANT with one key to the main entry door, one key to the Bedroom (if applicable), and one key to the mailbox. TENANT will be charged $50.00 per lost bedroom key, $50.00 per lost mailbox key, and $50.00 per key card not returned, or for those requiring replacement during the TERM of TENANT’S occupancy. Each TENANT may only possess one main entry door key; therefore, if the main entry door key is lost and TENANT requires a replacement, locks will be changed and TENANT will be charged $75.00 for the lock rotation. TENANT agrees that such keys are provided solely for TENANT’S own use; duplicates will not be made of such nor will keys be loaned to any person. LANDLORD reserves the right to suspend this service at any time.
TRASH AND TRASH CHUTE
TENANT must dispose of all trash in the proper bins in various collection areas on the PROPERTY. If property is equipped with a Trash Chute or Dumpster available to TENANT, then TENANT must use the Trash Chute or Dumpster to dispose of all waste. TENANT may NOT leave trash around the outside of TENANT’S UNIT or on the PROPERTY for ANY LENGTH OF TIME. LANDLORD will impose a fine of $100 per bag or item for violation of this policy as well as for any littering by TENANT or TENANT’S guests. TENANT agrees to bag all trash entering the garbage chute in accordance with applicable garbage and recycling principles followed in the building.

For any day with weather exceeding 100 degrees, TENANT must keep UNIT cooled to a temperature no higher than 85 degrees. TENANT is liable for damage to both LANDLORD’S and TENANT’S property and the property of others if the damage is the result of the utilities being turned off or because of broken water pipes due to TENANT’S violation of these requirements. All light bulbs must be operational at the time TENANT vacates the UNIT. Colored bulbs are not allowed in any exterior light fixtures.
Pets are not allowed in UNIT in any instance besides the use of a service animal or permitted by PROPERTY. In the case that TENANT utilizes a service animal, management should be made aware of the specifications of the animal.

The decision to drink alcohol, and how much to drink is a personal one. Alcohol related conduct, which infringes on the rights of others to a quiet, orderly living environment is not acceptable under any circumstances

Sweepings, rubbish, rag, or other foreign substances shall not be thrown in such plumbing apparatus. The cost of repairs/replacement resulting from any damage to such apparatus and the cost of cleaning or repairing plumbing resulting from misuse shall be borne by TENANT.
TENANT agrees to not place hard objects, such as bottle caps, tab tops, pits of fruit, etc. in the garbage disposal in order to avoid a jam. Fibrous materials such as cigarettes, paper, banana skins, etc. will plug the disposal. In the event LANDLORD is called to fix a disposal and such materials are found therein, LANDLORD reserves the right to charge TENANT for the expense incurred.

TENANT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF SECURITY POLICY
a) TENANT AND GUARANTORS acknowledge that neither LANDLORD, the management company, nor the agent for LANDLORD:

2. warrants or guarantees the safety or security of TENANT(S), or TENANT’S guests or invitees against the criminal or wrongful acts of third parties.
b) TENANT AND GUARANTORS acknowledge that:
1. each TENANT, guest or invitee is responsible for protecting his or her person and property;
2. the intercoms, building access systems and/or video camera systems, if any, are for convenience only and are not intended to be security systems. LANDLORD does not assure that intercoms, building access systems and/or video camera systems will continue to operate. If operation is interrupted for any reason, LANDLORD may either make repairs or abandon the intercom system, building access systems and/or video camera system;
3. security/monitoring devices or measures, if any, may fail or be thwarted by criminals or by electrical or mechanical malfunction and that TENANT should not rely on such devices or measures and should protect themselves and their property as if these devices or measures did not exist.
a) We recommend that you abide by the following guidelines and use common sense in practicing safe conduct. Inform all other OCCUPANTS in your UNIT, including any children you may have, about these guidelines.
b) PERSONAL SECURITY—WHILE INSIDE YOUR UNIT
1. Lock your doors and windows—even while you’re inside.
2. Engage the keyless deadbolts or door latches on all doors while you’re inside.
3. When answering the door, see who is there by looking through a window or peephole. If you don’t know the person, first talk with him or her without opening the door. Don’t open the door if you have any doubts.
4. If children (who are old enough to take care of themselves) are left alone in your UNIT, tell them to use the keyless deadbolt
and refuse to let anyone inside while you are gone—regardless of whether the person is a stranger or an apartment maintenance or management employee.
5. Do not put your name, address, or phone number on your key ring.
6. If you are concerned because you have lost your key or because someone you distrust has a key, ask LANDLORD to re- key the locks. You have a statutory right to have that done, as long as you pay for the re-keying.
7. Dial 911 for emergencies. If the 911 number does not operate in your area, keep phone numbers handy for the police, fire, and emergency medical services If an emergency arises, call the appropriate governmental authorities first, then call LANDLORD.
8. Check your smoke detector monthly to make sure it is working properly and the batteries are still okay.
9. Check your door lock, window latches, and other security devices regularly to be sure they are working properly.
10. If your doors or windows are unsecure due to break-ins or malfunctioning locks or latches, stay with friends or neighbors until the problem is fixed.
11. Immediately report to LANDLORD – in writing, dated, and signed – any needed repairs of locks, latches, doors, windows, smoke detectors, and alarm systems.
12. Immediately report to LANDLORD – in writing, dated, and signed – any malfunction of other safety devices outside your UNIT, such as broken gate locks, burned-out lights in stairwells and parking lots, blocked passages, broken railings, etc.
13. Close curtains, blinds, and window shades at night.
14. Mark or engrave your driver’s license number or other identification on valuable personal property.
c) PERSONAL SECURITY – WHILE OUTSIDE YOUR UNIT
1. Lock your doors while you’re gone. Lock any door handle lock, keyed deadbolt lock, sliding door pin lock, sliding door handle latch, and sliding door security bar that you have.
2. Leave a radio or TV playing softly while you’re gone.
3. Close and latch your windows while you’re gone, particularly when you’re on vacation.
4. Tell your roommate or spouse where you’re going and when you’ll be back.
5. Don’t walk alone at night. Don’t allow your family to do so.
6. Don’t hide a key under the doormat or a nearby flowerpot. These are the first places a burglar will look.
7. Don’t give entry keys, codes or electronic gate cards to anyone.
8. Use lamp timers when you go out in the evening or go away on vacation. They can be purchased at most hardware stores.
9. Let the LANDLORD and your friends know if you’ll be gone for an extended time. Ask your neighbors to watch your UNIT since the LANDLORD cannot assume that responsibility.
10. While on vacation, temporarily stop your newspaper and mail delivery, or have your mail and newspaper picked up daily by a friend.
11. Carry your door key in your hand, whether it is daylight or dark, when walking to your entry door. You are more vulnerable when looking for your keys at the door.
d) PERSONAL SECURITY—WHILE USING YOUR CAR
1. Lock your car doors while driving. Lock your car doors and roll up the windows when leaving your car parked.
2. Don’t leave exposed items in your car, such as CDs, mp3 players, wrapped packages, briefcases, or purses.
3. Don’t leave your keys in the car.
4. Carry your key ring in your hand whenever you are walking to your car.
5. Always park in a well-lighted area. If possible, try to park your car in an off-street parking area rather than on the street.
6. Check the backseat before getting into your car.
7. Be careful when stopping at gas stations or automatic-teller machines at night – or anytime when you suspect danger.
No security system is failsafe. Even the best system can’t prevent crime. Always act as if security systems don’t exist since they are subject to malfunction, tampering and human error. We disclaim any express or implied warranties of security. The best safety measures are the ones you perform as a matter of common sense and habit.

It is our goal to maintain the highest quality living environment for our tenants. The LANDLORD has inspected the UNIT prior to lease and knows of no bed bug infestation. Tenants have an important role in preventing and controlling bed bugs. While the presence of bed bugs is not always related to personal cleanliness or housekeeping, good housekeeping will help control the problem by identifying bed bugs, minimizing an infestation, and limiting its spread.
TENANT(s) represent(s) that all furnishings and other personal property that will be moved into the unit are free of bed bugs.
TENANT agrees to maintain the premises in a manner that prevents the occurrence of a bed bug infestation in the premises. TENANT agrees to uphold this responsibility in part by complying with the following list of responsibilities:
1. TENANT shall practice good housekeeping, including the following:
TENANT shall remove clutter. Bed bugs like dark, concealed places, such as in and around piles of clothing, shoes, stuffed animals, laundry, and especially under the bed and in closets. Reducing clutter also makes it easier to carry out housekeeping.
TENANT shall keep the unit clean. Vacuum and dust regularly, particularly in bedrooms, being especially thorough around and under beds, drapes, and furniture. Use a brush attachment to vacuum furniture legs, headboards, and in and around nightstands. While cleaning, look for signs of bed bugs and report these immediately.
TENANT shall avoid using secondhand furnishings that have not been thoroughly inspected for the presence of bed bugs, especially bed frames, mattresses, and box springs. If rental furnishings are used, make sure that the furniture rental company has established procedures for the inspection and identification of bed bugs or other pests. This process should include inspection of rental furniture inventory and trucks used to transport rental furniture. It should also include a pre-delivery and pre-pickup inspection by the furniture and rental truck company of the premises to which the rental furniture is being delivered. Never accept an item that shows signs of bed bugs. Never take discarded items from the curbside.
Management strongly recommends that TENANT cover mattresses and box springs with zippered covers that are impermeable to bed bugs. These are relatively inexpensive and can prevent bed bugs from getting inside the mattress, their favorite nesting spot. The covers will also prevent any bugs inside from getting out; they will eventually die inside the sealed cover (though this may take many months). Thicker covers will last longer.
TENANT shall arrange furniture to minimize bed bug hiding places. If possible, keep beds and upholstered furniture several inches away from the walls. Bed bugs can jump as far as three (3) inches.
TENANT shall check for hitchhiking bed bugs. If you stay in a hotel or another home, inspect your clothing, luggage, shoes, and belongings for signs of bed bugs before you enter your apartment. Check backpacks, shoes, and clothing after visits to neighbors, friends, and family, theaters, or after using public transportation. After guests visit, inspect beds, bedding, and upholstered furniture.
2. TENANT shall report any problems immediately. Specifically, TENANT shall:
Report any signs of bed bugs immediately. Do not wait. Even a few bugs can rapidly multiply to create a major infestation that can spread from unit to unit.
Report any maintenance needs immediately. Bed bugs like cracks, crevices, holes, and other openings. Request that all openings be sealed to prevent the movement of bed bugs from room to room.
3. TENANT shall cooperate with pest control efforts.
If your unit (or a neighbor’s unit) is infested with bed bugs, a pest management professional may be called in to apply pesticides. The treatment is more likely to be effective if your unit is properly prepared. TENANT agrees to comply with the recommendations from the pest management professional, including:
• Removing all bedding (bed skirts too), drapes, curtains, and small rugs; bag these for transport to the laundry or dry cleaner.
• Checking mattresses carefully: Those with minimal infestation may be cleaned, encased in vinyl covers, and returned to service. Heavily infested mattresses are not salvageable; seal these in plastic and dispose of them properly.
• Emptying dressers, nightstands, and closets. Remove all items from floors and surfaces. Inspect every item for signs of bed bugs. Using sturdy plastic bags, bag all clothing, shoes, boxes, toys, stored goods, etc. Bag washable and non-washable items separately. Take care not to tear the bags and seal them well. Used bags must be discarded properly.
• Vacuuming floors, including inside closets. Pay special attention to corners, cracks, and dark places.
• Vacuuming all furniture, including inside drawers and nightstands. Vacuum mattresses, box springs, and upholstered furniture, being sure to remove and vacuum all sides of loose cushions, as well as the undersides of furniture.
• Carefully removing vacuum bags, sealing in plastic, and discarding.
• Cleaning all machine-washable bedding, drapes, clothing, etc. Use the hottest water the machine provides and dry at highest heat setting. Take other items to a dry cleaner, but be sure to advise the dry cleaner that the items are infested. Discard any items that cannot be decontaminated.
• Moving furniture toward the center of the room so that technicians can easily treat carpet edges where bed bugs congregate, as well as walls and furniture surfaces. Be sure to leave easy access to closets.
4. TENANT agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the LANDLORD from any actions, claims, losses, damages, and expenses, including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees that LANDLORD may sustain or incur as a result of the negligence of the TENANT or any guest or other person living in, occupying, or using the premises.
