Any charges for extra time our cleaning staff spends completing these check-out duties will be deducted from Lessee’s deposit:
–All trash must be removed from the home and deposited into the trash containers outside. Lids must be secured to prevent disturbance by animals. It is the responsibility of Lessee to take the trash to the street for pick-up during your stay. Please refer to instructions at the rental home for information regarding the trash pick-up schedule. Lessee will be charged for excessive trash left at the home. If there is more garbage than will fit in bins provided, please bring it to Lessor’s office upon check out. Do not leave recyclables at the home. Recyclables may be taken to the recycling center behind Holiday Market in Chester, or the garbage transfer station at the corner of Hwy. 36 & A-13.

*RESTRICTIONS: Absolutely no smoking is permitted inside any building or structure. No pets or domestic animals of any kind are allowed at the property at any time, including visiting animals, unless approved by agent in advance. No RVs, 5th wheel trailers, tent campers or tents are permitted on the property. No more than 2 boats per home. No parties or loud gatherings are allowed at the property. The maximum occupancy may not be exceeded. Children age 3 and up shall be counted in the maximum occupancy.
*LAKEFRONT/DOCK DISCLOSURE: Exercise EXTREME CAUTION when using all lakefront areas, docks, dock coverings, mooring systems, walkways, ramps, anchor chains, buoys, stairs and accesses to and from the lake. Lake Almanor is prone to afternoon winds. Lessor strongly advises Lessee to use the buoys to secure your boats in windy conditions.
*SEPTIC DISCLOSURE: Lake Almanor homes are operated on a septic system. Lessee will be held responsible for the cost to repair any plumbing or septic problems that are determined to be caused by Lessee’s negligence. Only toilet paper and human waste may be disposed of into the septic system. Do not flush paper towels, sanitary napkins, tampons, wipes, or soap products. Do not pour kitchen grease or chemicals down the drain or disposal. The disposal is not to be used for disposal of food products, merely to clear small remnants of food after rinsing dishes. Following these simple rules could prevent major plumbing problems during your stay.
*ANIMAL DISCLOSURE: Please be aware that this is a mountain community and there is a large variety of animals and insects that could be encountered during your stay. Bats are especially common during the summer months and they roost in the eaves of many of the homes. Do not leave doors open unnecessarily, especially in evening hours. Lessor is not responsible for the presence, the actions of, injury sustained from, or locations of these animals and insects.
*RENTAL OF MORE THAN ONE HOME: Should Lessee rent more than one property, the following rules shall apply: 1) No items shall be moved from one house to another. 2) Guests from one home will not spend the bulk of their rental time at a house other than the home in which they are sleeping. Having people spend most of their time at another house unfairly burdens that house, creates risk of sewer backup, and creates risk of neighbor complaints. 3) Guests moving between the houses will respect the quiet condition of the neighborhood and refrain from noise and behavior that may disturb the neighbors.
*SECURITY DEPOSIT: Lessee’s security deposit will be processed within 21 days of departure. If any portion is withheld for damages, phone charges, cleaning, etc., a description of charges will be included with the remainder of the deposit. If damages exceed the amount of the security deposit, Lessee agrees to reimburse Lessor for costs incurred to repair/replace damaged items.
*HOME FURNISHINGS: Rental homes are equipped with basic household furnishings and kitchen equipment, including, but not limited to: appliances, TV, DVD, propane BBQ, pillows and blankets, and some patio furniture, unless otherwise advertised. WE DO NOT SUPPLY SHEETS, TOWELS, PAPER PRODUCTS OR PERSONAL SOAPS/TOILETRIES.
*HOMES FOR SALE: Tenants agree to allow homes that are listed for sale to be shown upon reasonable notice.
*AGE REQUIREMENTS: Lessee must be at least 25 years of age and will be an occupant of the unit during the entire term of the lease.
