4 Responsibilities of Every Condo Dweller
Be a good neighbor and resident by taking note of these things
Congratulations! You've just moved into your new home and we're sure you're excited to settle down and furnish your space. Before anything else, do you know that you have rights and responsibilities as a condo resident?
Since you will be "sharing" the building and its amenities with other dwellers, you need to take note of a couple of reminders so that your stay will be pleasant and memorable. Be a friendly neighbor by taking note of the following:
Follow the house rules
Do you have a pet with you? Do you love playing loud music on weekends? Since you're a new resident, make sure that you are aware of rules and guidelines being implemented in the building. You can ask the building admin about this as well since a manual detailing house rules are often given during the turnover of the unit.
"Make sure you have read, understood, and that you follow each rule and regulation to maintain a safe, secure, and orderly condominium surroundings," interior designer and licensed broker Rochelle Granali shares.
Pay your bills on time
It is also your responsibility to review payment details and take note of due dates. Failure to pay the monthly dues on time may result to additional fees and there are also developers who ban residents from using common areas and amenities if the rent remains unpaid for a long period of time.
Avoid any incovenience and loss of utilities/services by saving the due date on your mobile phone and writing it down on your planner.
Be mindful of noise levels
Since you're not the only one living on your floor, you need to take note of the noise level coming from your unit. If you have guests coming over or if you're hosting a dinner or lunch, advise your friends that you need to keep the noise down. Be wary of the sounds of your speakers and TV, too. This also applies if you prefer taking calls outside your unit.
Stay informed about events
Keep up with happenings by reading announcements, regularly checking the bulletin board, and attending meetings. Doing these will help you prepare for surveys, cleaning schedules, and service interruptions.
