Park Rules and Regulations
We have designed a number of guidelines that we hope will maintain the Briarmeade community in such a way that you will be pleased to live here. As such, the following Rules and Regulations have been established for the benefit of all park residents, guests and other visitors of Briarmeade Estates and will be strictly enforced by the management. The park is private property and all persons who enter the park for any purpose shall be subject to these Rules and Regulations and any further amendments.
General: As a condition of residency in the park you agree to follow these Rules and Regulations at all times. You agree to be responsible for the actions of your guests and to make sure your guests fully understand the Rules of the park.
Rent: All rent is due on the first calendar day of the month and is paid on a month to month basis. Lot rent paid on the 6th day or after is considered late and is subject to a $50 Late Fee. Any waiver in late fees must be approved by the owner and will only be granted in the event of a dire circumstance. Note - Eviction filing may occur at any time after the 15th and you agree to pay all related filing fees and other costs. Contact the owner immediately to avoid any unnecessary expenses.
Payment of rent must be in the form of check or money order and made out to
Briarmeade Estates. NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED UNLESS HANDED DIRECTLY
TO THE LANDLORD. You will receive a receipt once payment is made. You can pay
Kim or Rusty Reeve either in person or you can use the drop box. Either way, it must be received by the 5th in order to avoid a late charge.
A fee of $20 will be charged for any check that is returned for insufficient funds.
Any balance will not be considered “paid in full” until all fees due have been paid. A partial payment is still subject to penalties until it is paid in full.
Single/Multiple Lots: Rent is assessed on a per lot basis. Any tenant wishing to occupy more than one lot for any reason must obtain approval from the park owner. Additional lot rent will be assessed accordingly.
Deposits: Occupancy in the park requires a Security Deposit equivalent to the first
month’s rent whether you are a renter or homeowner.
Homeowners are also required to provide an additional deposit to cover the costs
associated with skirting and decking their home prior to move-in. This deposit will be refunded once the home has either been properly skirted and decked or unless the park provides the service for the homeowner.
Security Deposits are refundable if there is no damage to the lot and/or rental unit, all rent and late fees are paid in full, and a minimum 30 day notice was given. There are no rent refunds.
Occupancy: All residents must have a completed Lease Agreement on file with
management. A copy of the signed Park Rules and Regulations must also be on file. No adult person shall move into the park unless an Application and a new Lease Agreement has been approved by the owner.
Children: Tenants are responsible for the activities of their children and their children’s guests (under 18 years old) while they are in the park. An adult must supervise young children at all times. Children’s toys are not to be left in the street or common areas when not in use.
Pets: Unfortunately, we do not allow pets in our Rental Homes at this time,
however pets are allowed in Tenant Owned Homes provided they fall under the
Domestic pets must be less than 30 pounds, housed inside the home, and kept on a leash when outside. Pet owners are required to clean up after their pets when outside. No more than 2 pets per household. No vicious breeds are allowed on the premises at any time, specifically to include but not limited to Rottweiler, Chow-Chow, Akita, Pit Bull, Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher, Wolf Hybrids, etc. Exotic animals and any animal with a propensity to bite, or that would pose a threat of injury to a human being, are not allowed on the premises.
Note - A Pet Agreement must be filled out for all animals living in your home
regardless if you rent or own. A copy of the Pet Agreement is being provided to each resident for your reference regardless if you have a pet or not. If you currently have a pet, please fill out the Pet Agreement and return it so it can be attached to your Lease Agreement. Remember, any violation of the Pet Rules will result in a $30 fee for the initial violation and an additional charge of $20 per day for each day afterward.
A Pet Deposit equivalent to one month’s rent will be required upon move-in for all new pet owners and for existing tenants that acquire a pet.
Documented service animals are not considered pets.
Utilities: Water, trash and sewer are included as part of the rent each month. Tenants are responsible for their own utilities including electric, gas, cable, etc. All utility deposits are the responsibility of the tenant. Homeowners are responsible for all electrical and plumbing hook up charges as well as all maintenance from the point of connection at the utility box/line to their mobile home.
