LANDLORD RESPONSIBILITIES (Click here for printable flyer.)
Notification of Residence
Property owners of rental property within the corporate limits of the Village are required to submit to the Tax Commissioner twice a year a Landlord/Tenant Questionnaire form detailing the names, addresses, telephone numbers and place of employment for each tenant (Section 729.01) living in rental property of any kind on or before July 31 and December 31 of each year.
Each owner or landlord of residential property is required to comply with all applicable provisions of the Village of Golf Manor building codes, regulations, or ordinances governing the maintenance, construction, use or appearance of property used for rental including:
- Keeping all common areas of the premises in a safe and sanitary condition.
- Making all repairs necessary to keep each dwelling unit in a fit and habitable condition in compliance with Golf Manor’s building code, fire code, and the regulations of the Board of Health.
- Maintaining in good and safe working order and condition all functioning systems in the unit including but not limited to electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning fixtures and appliances, supplied or required to be supplied by landlord.
- Advising tenants of and enforce compliance with the Village Residential Waste Collection and Recycling ordinance and ensure disposal of all garbage and rubbish in accordance with the provisions of the Village waste collection rules (521.10 – Waste Collection Rules).
- Exterminate any insects, rodents, or other pests on the premises.
- Ensuring provision of utilities including running water, reasonable amounts of hot water and reasonable heat at all times, except when the building that includes a rented unit is not required by law to be equipped for that purpose, or the unit is so constructed that heat or hot water is generated by an installation within the exclusive control of the tenant and supplied by a direct public utility connection.
- Except in the case of emergency or if it is impracticable to do so, giving the tenant reasonable notice of landlord’s intent to enter and enter only at reasonable times. Twenty-four (24) hours is presumed to be a reasonable notice in the absence of evidence to the contrary.
- Ensuring the peaceful enjoyment for all tenants in a property and surrounding neighbors by prohibiting any objectionable noise, especially during the hours of 10 pm and 7 am. Our police officers will make judgement based on the guidelines in the Village codified noise ordinance. Generally an objectionable noise that can be heard by a complainant at a distance of 100 feet from the source is prohibited.
- Village ordinances provide some control over parking on residential streets. For example, no vehicle is permitted to be parked on the road for more than seventy-two (72) consecutive hours (351.05 Maximum Consecutive Street Parking). In addition, parking is prohibited on curbs that have been painted yellow, in front of driveways, across the sidewalk, street lawns or over curbs (351.03 Prohibited Parking). Also prohibited is displaying a vehicle for sale or making repairs on a vehicle upon any public roadway. Most homes in the Village have driveways, as well as many of the multi-family homes and apartment buildings have parking lots. Our best advice is to advise tenants to first use the parking space on their own property as a matter of courtesy to neighbors before parking on the street or parking vehicles in front of someone else’s home.
