2. Park management does not permit the renting of any manufactured home.

3. No resident may sublease or permit anyone to occupy the manufactured home while the resident is not occupying the manufactured home. If a resident wishes to have a new individual occupy his or her manufactured home with them, the new individual must be 55+ years old and apply for residency and must pass a background check, then receive approval from management prior to moving in.

Any individual who stays in the park for a period of five or more consecutive calendar days is deemed a “long term guest.” Residents must register all long term guests with park management within seven calendar days of the first day of the visit. Consistent with the provisions of this paragraph, management has the right to reject any long term guest; (a) who is a registered sex offender or felon; (b) who has previously disturbed, threatened or harassed any resident in the park; (c) who has otherwise engaged in disruptive, violent or illegal conduct in the park; and /or (d) where other good cause exists to reject the proposed long term guest. If a long term guest registration has been rejected, the resident must require the long term guest to leave the park’s premises immediately upon notification of the rejection. (A background check will be required of anyone 18 and over living, (or staying longer than 5 days) at the home at a cost of $25 per individual).

The purchaser/new resident must meet all park rules and regulations, requirements, credit approval, personal character requirements, and background check of $25 per individual living in the home in order to keep the purchased home in the park. The purchaser/new resident must agree to all community rules and regulations and evidence that agreement in writing, prior to commencing occupancy in the home.

12. Any home that is being sold to a new purchaser must meet all federal, state and local code requirements including, but not limited to, electrical, health safety and building codes.

Park management reserves the right to maintain standards which regulate the quality and condition of the exterior and interior of any manufactured home within the park. Park management has the right to reject a prospective resident’s application to keep the purchased home in the park based upon the obsolescence or deterioration of the manufactured home.

All rent and other charges owed by the Resident must be paid prior to closing the sale of the home. No tenancy is transferable and Resident’s tenancy continues until the purchaser is approved and executes a lease with the Community.

13. Twin Lake Homes does not permit solicitation of any kind, whether door to door, or signs advertising any company, product or service. For Sale signs are considered advertising a product and sometimes a company, so for this reason, they are also not permitted. Signs are not permitted on the lot, in the windows, or on sheds of any of the homes within our community. Park management reserves the right to remove any such sign without a risk of loss or liability. Open House signs are permissible only during the hours of the open house for that home (maximum 2 hours).

16. Residents are to be 55 yrs. or older (unless grandfathered in before December 31, 2016).

17. Non-Sufficient Funds (Dishonored Checks). When a resident’s rent, late fee or other check is dishonored, management will charge an additional $30 (bank fee) that will need to be paid, along with a $50 late fee (if applicable).

If a resident fails to maintain his lawn, park management will notify the resident that the resident has three days to take such necessary actions to upgrade or maintain his lawn or yard. If the resident fails to take action within three days, park management may, but is not required to, perform all work such as mowing, clipping, leaf removal and other services necessary to upgrade or maintain the yard. Residents will be billed a charge of $50.00 per man hour plus the cost of material in the event that the park is required to mow their lawn and at reasonable rates for any additional material and labor provided in maintaining the resident’s lot,” which the resident agrees to pay as an additional fee.” *Blowing your grass clippings into the street is prohibited, as this clogs up our storm sewers. Grass and leave clippings are to be placed in paper lawn bags for curbside pickup. No landscape debris, grass or leaves should ever be placed in the ditch. All landscaping must be properly maintained by resident. If overgrown bushes, weeds, flower beds or pots are noticed by management, a 10 day notice will be given. If not corrected, a charge of $50/man hour will be charged to resident.

3. Landscaping is encouraged by the park management. Under no circumstances will weeping willows or similar trees be permitted. Park management will require all residents to contact the office before doing any digging to prevent damage to our underground utilities. OUPS (Call 811 before you dig) should be notified and is the resident’s responsibility. Sewer, water, gas, electric, cable and other underground facilities may be identified and properly protected and park aesthetics maintained. Should the resident choose to plant a tree, all of the maintenance for that tree will be the responsibility of the homeowner such as, trimming, pruning, and the removal if required during the term of the lease. If a tree requires removal, Community Management must be informed prior to the tree’s removal. *Landscaping, all shrubs, and any additional structures must be 2 ft. inside your lot line (unless otherwise approved by management), and must be able to be maintained on both sides. Landscaping is not permitted to in any way cover the gray water box located on the front of the home, obstructing the radio read of the utility meter.

Call the office first for approval along with calling OUPS 811 (Call before you dig).

Utilities

1. Residents must dispose of all trash, garbage, and other waste in a clean, safe and sanitary manner. Garbage cans must be kept out of site. Any garbage that does not fit into the blue container will not be picked up and must be disposed of by resident. Carpet sections and branches/twigs must be no larger than 4 ft. when left to the curb for pick up. Please make sure trash and recycle bins are never in the street.

2. Each resident must maintain in good repair any and all water, sewage, gas and electric lines or pipes outside the manufactured home up to the point of connection with park facilities. If a resident causes any line or pipe to become clogged or non-functional because of foreign matter including, but not limited to, wipes, sanitary napkins, rags or paper towels, toys, personal items etc. The resident must pay for restoring the line to the service.

3. Trash pickup is currently on Mondays. Should there be a change, the park office will notify the resident of the change.

4. Garbage and recycle will be collected by the current waste management company. Each resident will receive a blue container in which to place all their trash, garbage and waste and a green bin for recyclables. Said containers are to be put out no earlier than the night before pick-up and put away the same day. Garbage or trash may not be placed in anything other than the blue container. If resident damages or defaces his/her container, they will be charged to replace it. Blue bin is for trash, garbage, and waste. The following is a list of acceptable items that can be put in the Green bin for recycling (must be empty, clean, dry and loose): paperboard, steel cans, cardboard, magazines, household plastics #1-7, cereal boxes, mail, paper, phonebooks, aluminum cans, glass bottles. When waste and recycling bins are full, they are to be taken to the curb (not on the street) the night before or by 6 am the morning of collection day. They are not to sit full for days. These bins are to be brought in the same day after they have been emptied.
