It protects your personal property if anything happens, and can pay for any damage or loss to the apartment property. Like everyone at Northview, you are responsible for damage or loss to apartment property, and your person caused by fire, vandalism, water damage, and other injurious acts or crime.

Caring For Your Apartment
- Residents may not order any outside service or repair to any fixture or equipment belonging to Management. Any such expense incurred will be borne by Resident unless pre-authorized in writing by Management.
- Cleaning of your range and refrigerator must be done at least weekly. Exercise care to prevent chipping/scratching/burning appliances and countertops. Always use a cutting board and hot pads.

- Your garbage disposal will accommodate leafy fruits and vegetables and soft garbage only. Absolutely no bones, grease, coffee grounds, orange peels, onion peels, fruit seeds or other fibrous material may be placed in the disposal. Grease must be accumulated in a jar with a lid and disposed of in the nearest trash receptacle. When used properly, the disposal will operate efficiently and effectively. If the disposal becomes clogged due to improper use, you will be charged for the service call. To operate disposal, first run cold water then slowly put small amounts of food into the disposal, allowing the food to be ground and drained before adding more food. Run cold water before, during and after disposing. To keep disposal blades sharp, empty a tray of ice cubes down the disposal once every two weeks.

The cost of repair or replacement of other equipment or furnishings of Management will be charged to you.

Caring For Your Community
One of the things our residents find most attractive about Northview Apartments is the simplicity, consistency and cleanliness of how our buildings look. Maintaining that look requires everyone’s cooperation, and as a result, the community does not allow the installation of wires, aerials, radio, clotheslines, or other lines on roofs, patios, balconies, windows, or any part of the building or premises.
Please refrain from excessive volume when playing your stereo, radio and television. Your conduct should be such so as not to become embarrassing, offensive, or disturbing to other residents or to Management. Management wants you to enjoy yourself, but please not at the expense of your neighbor’s comfort and rights.
The residents and members of their family, visitors and guest shall at all times conduct themselves in such a manner so as not to interfere with the enjoyment, comfort and safety of other residents. Your apartment is your home, free from interruption by Management, unless you or your guests disturb other residents of the Northview community. Televisions, stereo or photograph units, radios or any other sound producing system, musical instruments or other equipment are not to be operated or played at such volume, at unreasonable times or in any manner detrimental to the enjoyment and comfort of the residents in other apartments. The Resident understands that there will be a certain level of ordinary noise such as from footsteps, doors, pets, stereos, appliances and conversation.
If you are experiencing a noise concern, please let our leasing staff know and we will address the issue promptly.
Please insure that your trash is put in plastic bags and securely tied before placing them inside the dumpsters. Do not place trash outside the dumpster areas. Please do not leave trash bags or boxes in hallway for later disposal. Residents are responsible for taking all trash to the dumpster located nearest to them on the property and place the trash inside the Dumpster. Residents moving in and out may not use the dumpster for excessive boxes, or for any furniture, appliances, or large items. All boxes of any size should be folded flat before being placed in the compactor.
We try to keep the grounds and public areas clean, neat and attractive for everyone to enjoy. Some basic community guidelines to help us stay beautiful are:
- Please make sure your garbage goes straight from your apartment to the community trash receptacle. We do not allow bags of trash to be left in hallways or common areas.
- Please take care to clear personal belongings from outside your front door. We love to see a standard front door mat, potted plant, and seasonal decor gracing your entry, but anything else doesn’t really help in our community efforts to keep things looking neat and clean.
- Please remember that smoking is not allowed in our common areas, hallways or elevators.
- Finally, please show respect for landscaped areas, shrubbery, and trees. We work hard to keep the grounds looking great and appreciate your help in keeping them that way.
All balconies or patios must be kept clean and clear of storage items. Hanging of clothes, garments or rugs over railing of balconies or patios will not be permitted. Patios or balconies should not be used for anything except patio furniture, flower boxes and plants; they are not to be used for storage under any circumstances. For safety, please do not place plants on balcony railings.
For your peace of mind, door-to-door solicitation isn’t allowed. If a solicitor makes it to your door, please refer them to our office. We’ll take care of it.
Displaying or discharging fireworks, guns, slingshots, or any type of firearm or weapon is strictly prohibited. Violation of this policy by any resident, occupant, or guest may result in the immediate termination of the lease contract.

Rent Payment And Lease Agreement
Please make your rent payments by personal check, certified check or money order, or through our online payment system. You are welcome to drop off rent checks in the office, or for after-hours payment, please use our rent drop box.
- Cash and partial payments cannot be accepted.
- Remember to clearly write your apartment number on the check or money order.
- Delinquent rent payments are subject to late charges, as well as, legal fees and court costs. If rent has not been received by the 5th day of the month, a late fee of $50 will be due on the morning of the 6th day. If rent has not been received by the 15th day of the month, the account will be submitted for eviction and will be subject to legal fees.
- Bank returned checks will not be re-deposited. In addition to late charges, the resident incurs a N.S.F. charge of $50 over and above the amount of the check as well as the late fees.
- Checks returned by the bank must be redeemed within 48 hours with a cashier’s check or money order. Two returned checks will necessitate that for a period of 12 months, rent payments are made only by cashier’s check or money order.
Resident is responsible for paying all utilities.
We will contact you in advance of your lease expiration date to introduce renewal options and explain any changes to lease terms and rental rates. The lengths of renewal lease terms vary, but usually do not exceed thirteen months. If you choose to continue residency on a month-to-month basis at the end of your original lease term, you may be required to pay monthly rent premiums over and about the stated market rent. If you choose not to renew, your lease requires a 60-day written notice to vacate.
We want you to stay with us for a long time, so if you find your current home no longer meets your needs, consider transferring to another apartment home within the community. We will be happy to assist you in finding an apartment that will meet your new requirements.
Roommates are jointly responsible for all rental payments and lease terms. As a result, a notice to move out from one roommate is considered as a notice from all roommates residing in the apartment.
Upon move-out, the security deposit refund check (if one is owed) will be made out in the names of all residents listed on the lease agreement and mailed to the forwarding address provided. That means roommates will have to decide when and how to divide the deposit appropriately.
At Northview Apartments, we are committed to
the principles of Fair Housing. We will not discriminate in the leasing and management of our community on the basis of sex, age, marital status, race, creed, ancestry, color, religion, national origin, gender, handicap, sexual orientation, or familial status.
These principles are guaranteed by law, meaning that we cannot and will not provide different adult and family sections of the apartment community nor require one set of rules for certain residents and another set of rules for others.
We promise to provide all residents and guests with the same courteous treatment and application of company and community guidelines.
To assure a quality lifestyle for all residents, we have established occupancy guidelines for the maximum number of persons that can occupy each floor plan type: Two occupants in a one bedroom and four occupants in a two bedroom. If you experience a change in family size that puts your family outside the guidelines, please contact the office to assist you with the transition.
