Rules & Regulations
These rules and regulations are a binding part of your lease. A violation of any of these rules may be considered a failure to honor our lease obligations, and consequently, you may be considered in default and subject to legal action under the lease and the law. These rules are subject to change. This page can not be relied on in the event of a dispute.
Rent is due on or before the first day of each month. Checks should be made payable to Magers Management, LLC for the full amount of rent. We prefer to receive the rent in the form of a single payment. Failure to pay all rent by 12:00 noon on the 5th day of each month will expose all tenants in the apartment to eviction proceedings, and consequently, you will be subject for payment of Landlord’s legal costs and fees. Please make arrangements well in advance to see that rent is paid in a timely manner. Rent is preferred in the form of a check or money order. Cash is strongly discouraged. Also, please be sure that your apartment number is clearly written on your check to help us properly credit your rent.
Parties & Excessive Noise
Be forewarned: The Landlord will vigorously enforce all Lease provisions with regard to excessive noise and parties. You are bound by you lease to be responsible for the behavior of your guests and to respect the rights of other tenants at Magers Apartments. All parties must be within your apartment, and not spill out into the hallways and/or common areas. Again, you are responsible the behavior of yourselves and your guests. If a party is too big, uncontrollable, or disturbing the others, management and/or the police will shut it down. Any violations of the party and noise provision of the lease will result in written warnings being sent to the tenants and their guarantors. More than one written complaint for noisy behavior may be considered grounds for eviction of all tenants in the apartment. Likewise, if you find that you are disturbed or bothered by the behavior of other tenants and you have failed in your attempts to remedy the situation, please contact management and/or the police to allow us to address the situation.

Sales & Soliciting
All sales and soliciting are strictly prohibited on Magers Apartments property.
Damage to Apartment & Common Areas
Tenants will be strictly held responsible for damages in their apartments and to the common areas. You are also responsible for any damage done by your guests. A written bill will be sent shortly after the damage is noticed and payment is expected promptly upon receipt. Further, maintenance that is required beyond usual wear and tear will be charged to the tenants (this includes toilet backups because of improper use, holes in walls, etc.).
Move Out Prior To Expiration of Lease
Each tenant must realize that moving out prior to the expiration of the lease does not release either the individual or other tenants on the lease (and guarantors if applicable). All tenants are jointly and severally liable for the full performance of all lease obligations. This means you are each responsible for the actions of your roommates. The Landlord does not differentiate between you individually, with respect to this you are all treated as a group. If you move out prior to the expiration of the lease, you must notify the office in writing and return your keys. You will remain responsible for payment of rent and other charges until the earlier of the original expiration of your lease, or our leasing the apartment to new tenants who actually take possession. In addition, you may be held responsible for leasing costs that may include but are not limited to cleaning the apartment, painting, advertising, etc. If you move out and fail to pay rent the management may go to court and obtain a judgment for monetary damages against all or one of the tenants, and one or all of the guarantors of the lease. If an individual moves out of the apartment, and the others remain, all those on the lease will continue to be bound by the terms of the lease.
Security Deposit Refunds
Apartments will be inspected for damages shortly after the tenants vacate the apartment. Security Deposit refunds will be made in the name of all tenants on the lease. In no event will we issue separate checks. It is important that you give us a forwarding address for the check. Failure to give us a forwarding address may delay return of your Security Deposit.
We welcome all constructive criticism of any policy we may have and welcome your suggestions for improving the overall quality of living at Magers Apartments. Please feel free to call upon the Manager with your thoughts.
