RULES AND REGULATIONS

Rules and Regulations have been prepared and adopted to provide reasonable and uniform guidelines for the behavior and activities of all persons while on the condominium property.  The specific intent is to (1) protect equity in individual and common property, (2) maintain a comfortable, secure and healthy atmosphere and (3) ensure harmonious coexistence in a shared living and ownership environment.

 

Many residents have recurring concerns and questions concerning these rules and regulations.  The Valhalla Management Association has provided a complete set of governing documents and in the following would like to highlight areas of concern.

Animals

No person shall acquire or keep a dog, cat or other animal of any kind or nature except pet fish on the Property.  This policy also applies to pets belonging to visitors.

Resident Disputes

Members of the Master Board of Directors are under no special obligation to arbitrate disputes among neighbors, except to obtain compliance with Valhalla Management Association rules.  The complaining party should first attempt to obtain voluntary compliance by talking with the offender.  If that does not work, a formal written complaint must be submitted to the Master Board of Directors for consideration.

Balconies and Patios

Balconies and patios are part of the exterior architecture of each building, visible to the adjoining neighborhood as well as other residents.  Although they are an outdoor extension of the living space of each condominium, restricted use is required to maintain architectural consistency, project an aesthetically pleasing appearance and ensure the safety of the buildings.  In addition, there is to be absolutely no grilling or barbecuing on balconies or patios.  For additional rules, refer to the Additional Resident Policies for your individual building.

Trash Removal

Please follow instructions included in Additional Resident Policies for your individual building.

Advanced Disposal is schedule to pick-up

Garbage: Monday, Wednesday, & Friday

Unit Noise

Loud noises or other activities that will disturb neighbors are prohibited.  Noise due to a remodeling project in units is permitted from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.

Smoking

CHECK YOUR BUILDINGS SMOKING POLICY

Visitor Parking

Temporary parking is available for short tern visitors of residents. This is a half sheet and should be placed on the dash board of the visitor's car. These forms can be requested at the office. 

COMMON COURTESIES

Harmonious community life depends upon the willingness of neighbors to be considerate of each other.  Following are some suggestions, which may not have occurred to you, but can make a big contribution to condominium living.

  • Try to restrict noisy activities such as vacuuming, running the dishwasher, running the garbage disposal and running your clothes washer and dryer (if applicable) to times when it is least disturbing to your neighbors.
  • Locate your television and stereo equipment on an inner wall of your unit and not a wall that is shared with a neighbor.
  • Center your car in your parking stall to allow doors to open, loading and unloading, etc., for both you and your neighbors.
  • When sweeping or watering your plants on your balcony, be aware of people or property below.
  • Clean up spills (soap, plant soil, lint, etc.) on floors in entries, hallways, stairways and laundry rooms.
  • After a snowfall, please move your vehicle from the parking lot so the plows are able to do a better job of clearing the lot.  The job is completed more quickly and easily when the plows do not have to work around vehicles.  Snow removal is done the morning after a snowfall.

MISCELLANEOUS MAINTENANCE

Because Valhalla Park Condominiums is a condominium community, owners have maintenance responsibilities within their own units.  Following are some common maintenance problems.

  • Never leave your unit with the dishwasher or clothes washer (if applicable) running.  An unexpected malfunction could result in water damage to units below.  You will be liable for the resulting water damage.
  • If you have a water faucet dripping or toilet running, please call the Valhalla Management Office.
  • Be familiar with the location of your main water shut off valve for your individual unit and toilet and faucet shut off valves within your unit and how to operate them.  Contact the Valhalla Management Office if you do not know where these valves are in your unit.
  • When using the garbage disposal use plenty of cold water to help eliminate drain problems.
  • Windows and patio doors must be closed when it rains.  Failure to do so will result in water seeping through the walls and floors and into your neighbor’s unit.  You will be liable for the resulting water damage.
  • During the winter season, do not turn your heat off or set the thermostat below 60 degrees.  If you have a problem with your heat, contact the Valhalla Management Office.

PEST CONTROL

Valhalla Management Association handles pest control.  All common areas are treated on a monthly basis.  Should you discover pests (e.g. ants, bees, roaches, etc.) in your unit, or if you notice insects in interior common areas, contact the Valhalla Management Office.
