The following tips will help you have an enjoyable tenancy:

Always pay your rent on time

Your rent pays for the housing services you receive. It's important that everyone pays their rent on time, so we can afford to give you the services you expect.

Look after your home

Keep it in good condition.

Keep your balcony or yard tidy

Please don't use your balcony or yard for storage.

Be a good neighbour

Ensure that your household and guests treat other tenants with courtesy, and obey the law.

24 hours notice

When we have given you a written Notice of Landlord's Intent to Enter at least 24 hours beforehand, please let our contractors into your home to do necessary repairs. Contractors can also enter your home without notice in an emergency such as a flood.

Home businesses

You may not run a business from your home.
