EAGLE’S LANDING – The Denton Eagle’s Landing Homeowners Association mandates the parking lot procedure which is subject to change. The parking lot is monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days a week by A-1 Towing (368-1199). Parking is for Residents ONLY-Permit Required-Adami & Associates, Inc. cannot guarantee that a parking space will be available to you at Eagle’s Landing.
Here are some helpful hints on landing a space:
(1) Residents may park anywhere on the lot. Spaces #1, #2, #3, #4 & #10 are designated by the Homeowner’s Association as RESERVED SPACES Monday – Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm for office visitors and service vehicles. Residents are asked not to park in these spaces during business hours.
(2) Visitor parking is located across the community on the side street (Sycamore St.) or in the permit parking lots (#15 & #16) next to Sycamore St.
(3) If an overflow situation does occur and you cannot find parking on the property, park across on the side street (Sycamore St) or you may want to check with the UNT Police Dept. for information regarding parking availability &/or permits for dorm or commuter lots. These permits will be obtained at the Resident’s expense.
(4) Word of warning: the police do monitor our parking lot and issue tickets for parking in the fire lane. These tickets will not be paid by Adami & Associates, Inc. or Eagle’s Landing Condominiums. We do not ask for this service. It is mandated by the City of Denton in order to insure a space for emergency vehicles should the need arise. DO NOT PARK IN THE FIRE LANES.
The sewer system is adequate to handle all normal drainage. The system is not designed to handle diapers, Q-Tips, paper towels, certain feminine products, potpourri or other such refuse. DO NOT use chemical products such as Liquid Plumber or Draino in the drains.
Per paragraphs 12 & 26 of the TAA Lease Contract, the resident is responsible for repair, replacement and damage costs on plumbing exclusively serving the Resident’s home/condo.
WATER SHUT OFF VALVES ARE LOCATED UNDER THE KITCHEN AND BATH SINKS AND BEHIND THE TOILETS. If water begins to overflow from toilets, dishwasher, or from broken water lines or faucets, turn off the water at the valve immediately and call the office. This action will prevent excessive damage and costly repairs which may be billed back to the resident.
19. Hot Water Heaters
Individual water heaters supply hot water to each home/condo. Thermostats are set to provide economical heating of the tank’s water capacity. Please do not try to adjust the thermostat yourself. Any unusual loss of hot water supply should be reported to the office.
20. Light Bulbs
Each condo will be equipped with electric light bulbs at the time of occupancy. After move-in, resident is responsible for replacing burned out bulbs. All bulbs should be working at move-out.
A breaker box is located in each condo and controls the electrical power in the unit. If you should experience a sudden loss of power, check the breaker panel to see if the breaker has been tripped. If this is the case, the power can be restored by flipping the breaker off and then back on. In the event of an electrical fire, sparking, or “popping” from any electrical outlet or appliance, immediately turn off the breakers and contact the office and/or fire department if such action is deemed necessary.
22. A/C Heating & Filters
Central Heat & Air Systems: To obtain maximum efficiency in a comfortable climate, set the thermostat on 68 degrees for heat and 72 degrees for air conditioning. Avoid extreme settings and while you’re away, adjust the thermostat instead of turning the unit off.
EAGLE’S LANDING & HICKORY TREE – For your comfort, each condo is equipped with individual central heat and air. The operation of your HVAC unit will be the largest part of your utility billing and misuse or damage to the unit will prove to be costly. Maintenance is scheduled to check HVAC units each month and replace filters on a regular basis. It is important that access to your condo be provided so maintenance personnel can monitor the operation of this equipment. For most efficient results, the filter should be kept clean and lint free by the resident.
23. Smoke Detector
In accordance with Article 5236, i, of the REVISED CIVIL STATUTE OF TEXAS, all multi-family dwelling units are required to have smoke detectors installed in all new and existing multi-family units. An operational smoke detector is in place in each leased condo at the time a resident moves in. It is agreed and understood that the resident (s) will be responsible for reporting any malfunctions of the smoke detector to the owner or owner’s representative in writing so repairs may be made. Resident(s) are responsible for checking the equipment to insure proper operation. It is recommended the equipment be tested consistently on a monthly basis.
APPLIANCES: CARE WILL BE TAKEN WHEN USING ALL APPLIANCES AND MALFUNCTIONS ARE TO BE REPORTED TO THE OFFICE (IN WRITING). MISUSE OR NEGLIGENCE THAT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT WILL BE AT THE RESIDENT’S EXPENSE.
When using your disposal, be sure to have the cold water turned on. It is important to maintain a sufficient flow of water to flush water through the drains, even after the disposal is turned off. Do not put bottle caps, glass, pine, foil, rags, bones, egg shells, string, potpourri or paper in the disposal. Any damage or costs for repairing the disposal due to negligence will be charged back to the resident at $50.00 per incident.
If the disposal does not operate, make sure the switch is turned off and the appliance unplugged, then: 1). Check the reset button located on the bottom of the unit; 2). Check for any foreign objects inside the unit. If the unit is still not operating contact the office for service.
In using your dishwasher, do not overload the unit. It is best to run the hot water in the kitchen sink faucet for a few minutes before starting the cycle. All dishes must be rinsed before going in the dishwasher as the drain is not equipped to flush food items. Only automatic dishwasher detergent is to be used.
Your refrigerator is frost free and requires minimal care. To keep the refrigerator cooling and freezing efficiently, do not overload and regularly discard food reaching the spoiling stage. Clean the interior and exterior surfaces with warm, soapy water using a soft cloth or sponge. Never use a sharp instrument to free food or ice as a puncture may result in the loss of refrigerant and require replacement of the appliance at the resident’s expense.
Compact washers and dryers are furnished in some condos. These appliances are small load capacity and must not be overloaded. To prevent damage to the motors, limit loads to 2 pairs of pants, 3-4 towels, 2 dresses, 4 blouses, etc. Do not wash heavy or bulky items such as rugs or bedspreads in these machines. Lint filters must be cleaned after each load of clothes and only approved laundry detergent is to be used. Please do not leave washer and dryer unattended.
Adequate telephone jacks are located in each unit. Additional wiring within the condo is not permitted. If separate phone lines are desired, we will furnish the phone company written permission to do the necessary wiring. Installations and wiring will be at the resident’s expense.
Please contact the local cable company to discuss fees and entertainment packages. Cable service will be at the resident’s expense. Additional antennas or wiring will not be allowed.
We strongly recommend that you obtain your own renters insurance. You are responsible for damage or loss of personal property from theft, vandalism, fire, and water damage occurring in your apartment.
31. Resident Safety
Resident’s may request in writing for 1) additional keyless night lock on exterior door 2) safety equipment on sliding glass door in addition to door latch and 3) change or re-key locks or latches – but the resident must pay for them in advance.
Immediately report to the management (in writing, dated and signed) any needed repairs of locks, latches, doors, windows, smoke detectors, and alarm systems, if any.
Immediately report to the management (in writing, dated and signed) any malfunctions of other safety devices outside your dwelling unit such as broken gate lock, latches or self-closing devices, burned-out lights in stairwells and parking lots, blocked passageways, broken railings, etc.
All residents have a right to expect “quiet enjoyment” of your new community without the intrusion of stereos and/or televisions. We suggest you take a moment to introduce yourself to your neighbors and possibly exchange phone numbers. This will open communication lines should a neighborly situation occur. You may consider placing your stereo speakers up off the floor on speaker boxes and away from common walls. This wall help eliminate the possible sound transfer between apartments.
If you are having problems with a noisy neighbor, you should do the following:
a.) Try knocking on their door and peacefully asking them to control the noise, b.) If the problem continues to occur, then contact the Police Department at 349-8181. They will come to the property and issue a “Disturbing the Peace” citation. The City of Denton has disturbance guidelines which state that after 10:00p.m. excessive noise should cease. Any person disturbing his/her neighbors can receive a citation for disturbing the peace. Per paragraph 13 in the Denton Eagle’s Landing Homeowner’s Rules & Regulations, if the police are dispatched to your condominium you will be charged a $100.00 fine for disturbing the peace, c.) after the police have been contacted, please notify our office of the problem so we may issue a violation notice. If it is after hours leave a message at the office.
Adami & Associates will take the following steps when noise complaints are received by our office.
1. The first time we receive a noise complaint, a 1st warning notice is issued in writing.
2. The second noise complaint, a 2nd written warning is issued and the lease guarantor is notified.
3. The third complaint received will result in our office asking the violator to relinquish the apartment to us and the right to occupancy will be terminated. This will not terminate the violator’s financial obligation to the lease agreement. The violator and the guarantor will be financially obligated to this lease agreement until the lease terms have been satisfied.
We hope that your stay with us will be enjoyable. Please contact our office should you have any questions or comments.
