House Rules and Regulations

1. Registration, Notice Of Occupancy, Departure

Registration - All owners, family members, guests, and renters must register at the Manager's Office immediately upon arrival, or soon thereafter as the office is open for registration, acknowledge receipt of all House Rules and agree to comply with same. A vehicle-parking placard will be issued upon registration to non-owners. The placard must be displayed while the vehicle is parked on the condominium property.

Notice of occupancy - For security reasons, whenever a unit is to be occupied by a family member, guest or renter, the owner must first notify the Association Manager's Office (via mail or fax) of such occupancy.

Departure - To minimize the possibility of flooding, the main water valve to the unit and the electric power to the hot water heater must be turned off when leaving your unit unoccupied for an extended period of time. All balcony furniture, plants, etc. must be removed, as these items become very dangerous during high winds. Failure to do so will be considered negligence and may result in litigation against the unit owner if damage occurs to the common elements or another unit.

2. Owner Parking

Under no circumstances can you park in another owner's space without permission from the management or the owner. Assigned parking is in the garage and each numbered space is deeded to a unit in the Belize.

These rooms can be accessed with your common area key. All other trash should be bagged in plastic bags before it is deposited in the trash chutes located on each level. All items such as box packing materials should be taken to trash rooms in bags or boxes.
