Occupants of the units have contributed to the following information and rules, and have input and/or agree to any amendments or additions.
No alterations are to be undertaken without the prior approval of the Company.
The Furnishings are the responsibility of the resident, however the Company will provide a stove, hot-water unit, clothes drier, electric heater, floor coverings and fire equipment at both sites.
Residents are responsible for the costs involved with electricity, telephone, ambulance, fumigation of the unit, insurance of personal effects, furnishings and the like. They are also responsible for any unfair wear and tear of items of furnishings provided by the Company.
Residents are asked to ensure that all visitors park their cars in a manner that will not inconvenience other residents.
The Company is required to convene a Disputed Committee to hear and mediate on disputes that may arise within the Villages.
The Disputes Committee will comprise:
Residents are welcome to have houseguests on a short-term basis.
Electric heating is installed in all units. In the interests of safety kerosene heaters are not permitted.
Residents are requested to advise the company if they will be absent for holidays or other purposes. This will avoid unnecessary concern for the company and residents.
The company reserves the right to inspect the Units but only after giving notice, and with the resident or his or her representative present.
A set of master keys to all front screen and main doors is kept at the company office. On occupancy residents will be issued with two sets of keys.
Each unit is fitted with a Safety Link personal alarm system which is activated in an emergency by the resident pressing a device worn by the resident. Residents must check their alarm systems regularly (this should include the fire alarms in each unit). The committee will assist as required.
The company requires details of the resident’s doctor and next of kin for use in emergencies. These details are to be lodged with the company and kept up to date.
Except for a small caged bird, pets are not permitted. However if a resident owns a cat prior to occupancy the cat may accompany the resident, but is not to be replaced.
Residents are requested not to feed wild birds as these may become a nuisance to other residents.
Noise should be kept to a reasonable level. Should a resident be hard of hearing, he or she should consider using an earphone for television, radio or stereo especially at night.
If a unit is vacated permanently, it must be cleared of all effects and handed back to the company within seven days. Maintenance fees will continue until this happens.
Residents are encouraged to exercise self-reliance in matters relating to their personal, domestic and financial matters. The company will be pleased to discuss any item for which residents may need further information or clarification.
