Rules and Regulation

 

 

1.      All deliveries, move-ins, move-outs, and contract work must be scheduled with the front desk security guard who is available Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. PERMITS AND DEPOSITS ARE REQUIRED! Move-ins, move-outs, deliveries and work must be done Monday thru Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Holidays that fall in the week cannot be used for these purposes either. For some of the repairs you may be doing in your unit such as A/C or plumbing repairs, it may be necessary to give the other unit owners 48 hours notice. If there is an interruption in their service we must do this. All maintenance and repair work must be done a licensed company who carries insurance with Greenwich Association listed as the loss payee. This is for your protection since damage to other units is the unit owners responsibility if the contractor has no insurance. All work requiring a permit must have the permit issued prior to the start of work. All work must be scheduled through security. If they are not on the scheduled list, they will not be allowed entry to the building.  

2.      To receive guests, they must be able to call you from the front gate. Please provide your telephone number to the front desk. The Security guard at the gate will call you whenever you have a visitor. They must park on top of the parking garage. When they come to the building they will call you from the telebox by the front or back door. You will press 9 to let them in on your phone. Please advise your visitors that if they park in someones parking space, they may get towed. If you have visitors that you wish to have access to your unit when you are not at home, then they must have their own gate card and door key. We do not keep a list. We do not make exceptions. You must be at home to allow them in or provide them with keys. No keys, no entry.

3.      Dogs are allowed, but they must be 25 pounds or under. (yes, we do have bigger dogs, but they were grandfathered in. We no longer allow dogs of that size.) Dogs must always be on a leash. This includes puppies, tiny dogs, any age and size of dog must be on a leash and under control. If your dog behaves aggressively, he must be muzzled. Each condominium unit owner who shall own or maintain a pet within the condominium property shall indemnify the Association and hold harmless against any loss or liability or claim of any kind or character whatsoever arising out of or connected with the keeping of any animal or pet on the condominium property, against animal attacks or bites or any other incidents in connection therewith of like character. No owner shall be permitted to keep a pet upon the condominium property which shall become obnoxious or which will create a nuisance to any other unit owner.  Dogs are not allowed on passenger elevators. You must use the service elevator. The only exception to this rule is if the service elevator is being used for deliveries or work. Only then may you use the passenger elevator. Otherwise you must use the service elevator at all times. If your dog has an accident in the hallway, please clean it up. Other people may step in it and track it down the hall making a bigger mess. Please take your dog away from the building to go to the bathroom. Do not at any time allow the dog in the parking garage to go to the bathroom. Be respectful of others. Do not leave your dog on the balcony at any time. Dogs must be kept inside your unit. You are responsible for your dog at all times. If your dog disturbs others, you are responsible.

4.      No scooters or bikes allowed through the front door. Scooters and bikes must go in and out the back door only and must be carried in the service elevator located by the back door. Bikes may not be left in common areas or in the driveways.

5.      Monthly payments are due on the 1st, late on the 8th and charged a late fee, and sent for collection on the 20th. No exceptions. Payments must be made by check or money order. We do not accept cash. Each payment must include your unit number. Please state if the payment is for maintenance or assessment. You may mail your payment or put it through the slot in the office door. Do not give payments to porters or security guards.

6.      Any resident moving into the condominium must be approved through the Association. Unit owners and renters must go through the same approval process before moving in. Approval information can be obtained through the office. Unit owners will be held accountable for the behavior of their renters. Unit owners must be sure that their tenants observe all of the rules and regulations.

7.      All residents must have their own gate cards and keys. The guards are not allowed to open doors for people who do not have keys unless it is an emergency situation. All residents are expected to have keys and cards for themselves and their family members. If you need additional keys or cards please see Jose Perez (security). Gate cards are currently $25.00. Medeco Door keys are $75.00. Door keys can not be copied for security reasons. The gate cards also allow access to the pool area. The code for the racquetball court is 314. The panel is by the door. The front gate guards are under orders not to allow anyone into the property without a gate card, even if you have lived here for 20 years. Please do not be angry with them. This is their job. It is for everyones security. Just make sure you have the gate card you are supposed to have as well as the door key to eliminate problems.

8.      Pest control service is offered monthly. They come the 2nd Saturday of the month for the penthouse down to the 8th floor and the 4th Saturday of the month for the 7th floor to the lobby. They generally come both times between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. If you are not at home, then you will miss the service. They will not enter your home if you are not there to let them in.

9.      Storage rooms are to be used for boxes only. These boxes must be taped, sealed and clearly labeled with your name and unit number. Furniture, appliances and other large items are not allowed. The storage rooms are cleaned out periodically. If you place items that do not belong there, they will be thrown away. The Association is not responsible for anything in the storage room. If you wish to put anything in the storage room, you must sign out the key for that floor with the security guard on duty. Storage rooms are located in the laundry rooms on each floor. Due to the number of people who share the room we request that you do not take up more than your share of the room. If you have a great deal of items to be stored then you should get a private storage facility. Our storage rooms are fairly small and serve 16 units so that does not offer much room to spread around.

10.  Cars must not remain in the loading area or valet area over 20 minutes. Security logs in vehicles to these areas and violators may be towed. If an emergency arises or you have a physical limitation, please contact the manager. Parking in the fire lane is a violation of the law, and no one can give you permission to park there except the Fire Marshall. Cars parked in these areas will be fined and towed by the City of North Miami. No vehicle belonging to an owner or to a member of the family or to a guest, tenant or employee of an owner shall be parked in such a manner as to impede or prevent ready access to another owners unit or limited common elements or other parking spaces. The owners, their employees, servants, agents, visitors and licensees and the owners family will obey parking regulations posted.
