As a student tenant renting from Clermont Property Management, we have high expectations for your level of maturity when dealing with any situation that may arise. It is important to carefully read our student lease, knowing what Clermont Property Management expects from our tenants along with the obligations of a group lease is very important.
We view each group as one entity. This means that it is very important for each person that is a part of the lease to hold up their responsibilities. For example, if one person falls behind with rent payments the entire group will be held responsible. Selecting your roommates is very a important decision as it could make for a great year or a year full of headaches.
Emergency - If a maintenance issue arises after hours that is an emergency (fire/flood/no-heat) please call the Clermont office 613-384-4477 and follow the prompts to leave a message and one of our maintenance technicians will call you back as soon as possible to get more details.
Non-Emergency - If the issue is not of an urgent nature, please contact our office 613-384-4477 and we will get your information and details and discuss the next steps for repair.
It is very important to report maintenance issues as soon as they arise. Over time and reasonable wear and tear, maintenance issues arise, therefore reporting the issues in a timely fashion is imperative in order to reduce further complications. Unless damage caused by tenants, our tenants are not responsible for covering the cost of the repair.
In order to help ensure that your group is not charged for damage to your property that could have been avoided, it is important to keep walls and doors clean and free of holes, ensure floors are cleaned regularly, avoid water damage by keeping a shower curtain inside of your tube which allows the water to drain into the tub rather than onto the floor. By creating a cleaning schedule ahead of time, your group can delegate who will be in charge of what chore for what period of time, this helps involve everyone and keeps track of duties.
The city of Kingston has outlined various property standards requirements. It should be noted that some of the key requirements include: keeping lawns clean of garbage, keeping no indoor furniture outdoors and keeping noise levels down after 11:00 P.M.
Each unit has its own battery operated smoke and CO2 detector. The detectors in your unit can be sensitive and have been know to go off when someone burns something while cooking. You can help cut down on smoke from cooking by keeping your cooking surfaces clean and free from burnt food. Please keep in mind to never tamper with your detectors as it is there for your safety. For your added safety, you should purchase a fire extinguisher for your kitchen.
During December, our office will be contacting your rental group to advise you of rent increases on your unit for the following year. At this time, we will be requesting your intentions to renew or end your lease for the following school year. If you are planning to renew your lease, arrangements will be made to meet with you and your rental group to sign a new lease for the following year.
