RENTAL RESTRICTION AND PROMOTION OF OWNER OCCUPANCY
13.01 Rental Limits
(a) Owner Occupancy (see (i) definition below)/No Rental or Lease
During First Year of Ownership. Section 2.03(a) of this Declaration
permits an Owner to rent or lease the Owner's Lot pursuant to a
written lease or rental agreement, which agreement must be subject to
the Governing Documents. That permission to rent or lease (as further
qualified below) shall not apply as to any Lot or Owner until the
Owner has been the owner of record of the Lot for at least 12
continuous months (365 days). No Owner may rent or lease the Owner's
Lot until that 12 month period has passed. Until that 12 month period
has passed, the Lot may only be "Owner Occupied" as defined below.
(i) An "Owner Occupied" Lot is defined as a Lot whose occupants, if
any, include resident(s) who hold record title to not less than 50
percent of the legal and beneficial interests in the Lot as evidenced
by an instrument recorded with the County Recorder's Office.
(ii) Any lease or rental of a Lot is prohibited until the Lot's Owner
has been the Lot's owner of record for at least 12 continuous months.
Any occupancy of a Lot during the Owner's initial 12 months of
ownership that does not meet the "Owner Occupied" definition is
(b) Lease or Rental After the Initial 12 Month Owner Occupied (see (i)
definition above) Period. Except for Grandfathered Lots, no Lot or
Residence may be leased or rented until the Owner applies for and
obtains written consent from the Association. Grandfathered Lots, as
defined in Section 13.01(e), are deemed to have that Association
consent but must still provide notice of the lease or rental to the
Association. As for all other Lots, the Association shall provide
written consent to lease or rent so long as: (a) the initial Owner
Occupied period has run for that Lot; and (b) the Rental Cap
referenced below has not been met.
(c) Rental Cap. At no time may more than twenty-five percent (25%) of
the total number of Lots, i.e., one hundred forty (140) Lots, be
leased, rented or otherwise fail to be Owner Occupied, (see (i)
definition above) as defined above.
(d) Leased Lot Eligibility List. The Association shall establish and
maintain a Leased Lot Eligibility List ("List"). Lots that are
eligible to be rented or leased and have received Association
permission to rent or lease shall be placed on the List. When and if
the 25 percent cap is reached, the List shall also contain a waiting
list of the Lots, if any, whose Owners have requested, in writing,
that the Association place his/her Lot on the List to await an
opportunity for the Lot to be rented or leased. Only the
Grandfathered Lots, as defined in Section 13.01(e), and Lots that were
Owner Occupied (see (i) definition above) for a minimum of the initial
12 consecutive months of ownership by the current Owners, shall be
eligible to be placed on the List. Even if the 25 percent cap has
been reached, Grandfathered Lots shall still be able to be rented or
leased. In the event of a dispute over an Owner's status or position
on the Leased Lot Eligibility List, the determination of the Board
shall be final and binding.
(e) Grandfathered Lots. Grandfathered Lots are Lots owned by Owners as
of the effective date of the amendment adding this Article XIII to
this Declaration. Probate transfers, or any transfer to the heir or
heirs of the Owner, and other transfers exempt from the requirement to
prepare and deliver a Real Estate Transfer Disclosure Statement, shall
not change or remove the status of a Grandfathered Lot.
(f) Subleasing. Subleasing of Lots is strictly prohibited.
(g) Limited Hardship Exception. Upon written application by an Owner,
the Board, in its sole reasonable discretion, may determine that a
hardship faced by an Owner justifies the Association permitting a
limited exception to the Rental Cap. Examples that may justify such a
limited hardship exception include an Owner relocation required by (a)
the Owner's health/disability, or (b) the Owner's employment. If the
Board determines the Owner applicant has sufficiently demonstrated the
requisite hardship, the Board may permit the rental or lease of said
Owner's Lot for an initial period of no more than one (1) year. Upon
conclusion of the initial hardship exception period, the Board may,
upon the Owner's further written application, authorize one (1)
additional period for the Owner's Lot to be rented or leased but under
no circumstances does any hardship exception or exceptions authorize
the rental or lease by any Owner of his/her Lot for a total period of
more than two (2) years.
(h) Authority to Adopt Rules. The Board of Directors may establish
rules and regulations to enforce, clarify and/or implement all or any
part of this Article XIII.
13.02 Compliance with Governing Documents.
(a) Age Restrictions. As stated in Article 2.03(a) of this
Declaration, any rental or lease of a Lot shall be subject to the age
restrictions in this Declaration. Article 2.03)a) provides as follows:
Any Owner may lease or rent the Owner’s Lot. Any rental or lease of a
Residence will be subject to the provisions of the Governing
Documents, including, without limitation, the age restrictions in
Article 7.01 of this Declaration, all of which will be deemed
incorporated by reference in the lease or rental agreement. Each
Owner-lessor will provide any tenant or lessee with a current copy of
all Governing Documents and will be responsible for compliance by the
Owner’s tenant or lessee with all of the provisions of the Governing
Documents during the tenant’s/lessee’s occupancy and use of the Lot.
Leases/rentals will be not less than one month in duration. All
tenants must appear in person for interview.
(b) Owner/Lessor Responsible for Tenant Conduct. The Owner/lessor
will be responsible for any violation of the Governing Documents by
the Owner's/lessor's tenants. Noncompliance with any of the Governing
Documents by tenant and/or the Owner/lessor may result in fines or
Reimbursement Assessments being imposed on Owner/lessor. Owner/lessor
must ensure a copy of this Declaration and Club Rules are in the
rented Residence. If they are not present, contact the office to make
arrangements for a replacement.
13.03 Registration of Tenant.
Each tenant or lessee must be registered and interviewed by the
Association and Club prior to assuming occupancy and obtain
appropriate badges. Failure to comply with registration requirements
will result in an assessment against the landlord/owner.
