Park Rules

ELGEN COMMUNITY RULES

For Communities operated by Elgen Homes throughout NY State

RULES AND REGULATIONS AS OF JANUARY 14, 2019

 

INTRODUCTION:

These Rules and Regulations are in effect for communities operated by Elgen Homes throughout New York State.  They are designed to set a tone for mutual respect and understanding of others, in order to make our communities a pleasant and fulfilling place for our residents to live, as well as for the protection of the park and to promote compliance with law. At all times, the Rules and Regulations will be interpreted in a reasonable fashion consistent with the mobile home residency laws, and as such may change from time to time.  If any of these rules are unclear, contact the Park Manager for an explanation.  We hope that you will study these Rules and Regulations and comply with them enthusiastically and voluntarily.  Residency in the Community is based on your word that the Rules and Regulations will not be violated.  If you have a signed written lease covering your homesite, these Rules and Regulations are hereby incorporated in and made part of that lease.  If you are occupying your homesite without a lease and on a month to month basis, these Rules and Regulations shall be in effect independently and your month to month occupancy shall be subject to your ongoing and continued compliance with them. 

 

  1. BASIC RULE AND TYPICAL RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD STANDARD. As a general rule, our Communities are like other typical residential neighborhoods of similar quality and population makeup in our geographic area. Just like any other typical residential area, you and the other residents are expected to accept a reasonable amount of disturbances and other activity by your neighbors and others which won't be to your liking. For example, periodically your neighbors may give a party, run their lawn mowers or other noisy equipment earlier than you'd like, make too much noise when they start their car, or do other things which commonly occur in any other neighborhood which will disturb you.

     

  2. If a park resident or his or her guest is unreasonably disturbing you or others, you agree to affirmatively contact the person and make reasonable efforts to resolve it. If the problem is one reasonably proper for seeking intervention of police or other public authorities, it is required that appropriate contact be initiated and a complaint filed. If you can't resolve a problem with a neighbor, and you are materially disturbed or annoyed, Management may attempt to take reasonable steps to try to resolve the problem. Because of these and other similar considerations, you are agreeing that by continuing to live in our Park, we will not be liable to you or others for normal, routine disturbances or other kinds of things which one should commonly expect, nor will we be liable to you for our inconsistent or lack of enforcement of these Rules and Regulations.

     

  3. Compliance with Law and Lease or Rental Agreement. You and your guests may only be present in the common areas of the Park and use our facilities if you comply with these Rules and Regulations and our other conditions of tenancy. No violation of any federal, state, or local law or regulation or administrative, order by you or your guests is allowed. Also prohibited is any violation of any term, condition, or other provision of the lease or rental agreement applicable to anyone's tenancy or residency in the Park or these Rules and Regulations.

     

  4. Enforcing Compliance. Although we will make a reasonable effort and try and have residents and guests comply with these Rules and Regulations, we may not always be successful. We are not committing to you that our Park will be any different than another typical single-family residential neighborhood of similar quality and population make-up.

 

 1. PAYMENTS:

 

A. Rental Payments and Late Charges:  The rent is due the 1st day of each month. If you choose to mail your rent, it must be in our office by 5:00 o’clock on the 10th of each month to avoid late charges. A five percent late fee will be applied and a 30-day notice for non-payment will be issued.  

 

B. Method of Rental Payments: Payments may be made by maiI, in person, or via ACH.  The preferred method for payment is ACH, which stands for AUTOMATIC CLEARING HOUSE.  In this case the funds are electronically transferred from your bank account to ours on a date and an amount prescribed by you. Signing up for ACH can be done on our website (WWW.ELGENHOMES.COM).  Checks and money orders will need your name, address and lot number, as well as your community name.  Cash will not be accepted.  Partial payments will not be accepted.  Please click on your community page to see the appropriate mailing address for your park.   

 

C. Habitual Late Payment of Rent:  Habitual in this case means when paying your rent after the 10th of the month more than three times in a twelve-month period.  When this occurs, we may cancel your tenancy and you will have to remove your home from the park.   

 

D. Returned Checks: If a personal check you submitted to us in payment of the rent is returned by the bank unpaid, we may elect to electronically submit your check up to two additional times. You shall be responsible for an additional returned check fee of $20.00 for each time it is returned. If such checks are returned on two occasions, we shall no longer accept your personal checks and all subsequent rental payments by you shall be by cashier’s check or money order.  

 

E. Eviction for Non-Payment, Attorney's Fees and Added Rent: If you fail to pay the rent and/or added rent by the 10th day of any month, we may at any time thereafter sue you for the rent and institute proceedings to evict you and your home from the premises or use any other legal remedy available to us to collect the money or acquire possession of the property. If we proceed with an eviction action, we shall have the right to have rent and any other monies due as well as attorney’s fees, all of which are called “added rent” and must be paid by you. In addition, in the event we proceed with any formal action to collect any amount due and owing from you, you agree to pay attorney’s fees in connection with that action, plus all actual costs expended by us in connection with that collection action. The attorney’s fees and costs incurred in a collection action are also called “added rent”. Payments must be in form of a money order or certified check, no personal checks will be acceptedIf you want to have eviction action dismissed, you must pay in full all rent, “added rent” and attorney fees. 

 

F. Home and Site Maintenance. You are responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and site. Your home, approved additions and porches, sheds, and steps must be properly maintained at all times and must be painted as required. In the sole and subjective opinion of Elgen Management, your Homesite shall be maintained in a superior condition. Repeated failure to maintain your home and site will be cause for termination of your tenancy.

2.   LANDSCAPING, DRAINAGE AND MAINTENANCE:

A. Prior Approval.

We have certain requirements and restrictions regarding landscaping and other related items. Prior to beginning any landscaping project, including changes to existing landscaping, you must discuss your landscaping plans with us and obtain our approval. Any landscaping installed without our approval shall be removed by you within fourteen (14) days of written notice.

B.  Description of Landscaping.

Because of the infinite variety of living and non-living objects which may be used in landscaping, it is impossible to describe all things we will or will not accept. Consequently, our Landscaping standards are listed only to assist you in preliminary planning. You are cautioned that there are spaces in the Park with landscaping which no longer conforms with our present standards; therefore, do not assume your plans will be approved because they conform to existing landscaping.

C.  General Standards.

Our general standards are as follows. If landscaping in violation of the following now exists on your Space, then: (A) If it was in violation of our rules when it was originally installed, it must be promptly removed. (B) If it was not in violation of our rules when it was originally installed, it may remain until it dies or is otherwise removed when It may only be replaced with landscaping which does meet the following requirements:

(1) All landscaping must be clean and attractive in appearance.

(2) Evergreen grasses, ground cover, flowers and shrubs are generally acceptable. In most cases, trees which when mature will not exceed ten feet will also be acceptable.

(3) Small stone generally makes a good ground cover, however it may be no larger than 3/4" and the soil under the stone must be covered with heavy gauge fabric to prevent weed intrusion.

(4) You must check with us prior to digging or driving rods or stakes into the ground as they might damage underground utilities. You may not plant anything which has roots which will damage anyone's property. You shall bear the cost of repairs to any utilities damaged by you.

(5) Trees and plant material must be trimmed to present a neat appearance and must not encroach on adjoining spaces, or obscure the street view of persons driving in the Park.

 (6) Lawns must be mowed weekly.

 (7) Landscaping must be kept trimmed, watered, fertilized and weeded.

(8) Landscaping may not be excessively high or rub against mobile homes, awnings, or other structures so as to cause damage or other problems.     

(9) Landscaping must be maintained so that it does not cause damage to or interfere with property belonging to you, your neighbors or the Park.

(10) You may not remove a tree or other landscaping without our consent.

11) Snow Plowing:  You are responsible for snow removal in the parking area in front of your home.   Shoveling snow from the driveways or parking areas back into the roadways is prohibited. 

(12) The maintenance, repair and replacement of driveways, landscaping, and all other improvements on your space is your responsibility as follows: Individual driveway care so as to avoid damage to the driveway shall be Resident's responsibility.  Resident shall be exclusively responsible for the maintenance, repair, replacement, paving, sealing, and all expenses related to the maintenance of a resident-installed driveway, including driveways installed by any previous residents or others on their behalf.

(13) You shall keep the street area in front of your Space free from debris from the homesite.  

 

Pets:      NY STATE LAW STATES “EVERY DOG OWNED OR HARBORED IN NY STATE FOR LONGER THAN 30 DAYS MUST BE LICENSED”.  All dog owners must produce a current dog license in a timely manner.  Failure to do so will be grounds for immediate eviction.  Small dogs (less than 45 lbs.) or cats may be permitted with the written approval of Management. The following breeds are prohibited without exception: Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Chow Chows, German Shepherds, Wolf Hybrids or any mix of these breeds. Exotic animals of any kind are prohibited. Any animal previously known to bite or cause injury shall not be allowed on Community property, including indoors of tenant’s premises.  There will be a pet deposit of $250 per animal.  Such deposit is required at the time tenancy begins, or at such time you acquire a pet.  Pet deposit will be doubled if we discover you are harboring unregistered pets.    Pets (dogs and cats) are not allowed to roam at large.  The owner will be asked to remove the pet from the Park if complaints are received.   Pets must be kept indoors except when being walked on a hand-held leash. Pets shall not be tied outside and left unattended, nor shall fences or pet houses be erected on the Homesite. Dogs must be walked on the resident's lot and the resident is responsible to clean up after their pet. Noisy and unruly pets will not be allowed to remain in the Community. The Community will determine whether a pet is a nuisance and our decision is final. Failure to comply with the rules concerning pets is a serious violation of park regulations and may result in termination of your tenancy. Pet sitting is prohibited as well as guests bringing pets into the community.

Failure to comply with this provision is considered a material, non-curable breach of the lease and will result in a Notice to Quit being served upon Resident requiring that Resident, every member of Resident’s household, and all guests or other person(s) under Resident’s control shall vacate said premises on proper notice, all in accordance with New York law. New York law provides for an extraordinary remedy to regain possession when illegal activity is being carried out on or near the premises which constitutes a public or private nuisance
