How to be a Good Neighbor and a Successful Tenant The key to being a good neighbor and a successful tenant is respect.
Respect Your Neighbors
Keep the noise down from music, conversations, parties and arguments
Don’t park in your neighbor’s parking place.
Don’t litter on the property (parking lots, common greens, laundry areas, etc.)
Put your trash in the designated area
Limit large gatherings of people in and out of your apartment/house to reasonable hours.
Supervise your children/teens in and around the property
If you are having a problem with a neighbor, try first to resolve the situation peacefully with the neighbor. If that doesn’t work, report the problem to the landlord for resolution. If a crime is involved, report the incident to the police.
Respect the Rules, Policies and Procedures of Your Landlord
Comply with all lease requirements
Pay your rent on time
Be a good neighbor
Respect Your Own House or Apartment
Keep your house or apartment clean
Don’t damage the unit, like putting holes in the walls
Don’t leave trash strewn about
Call for repair or replacement if something is broken
If you treat your neighbors and your landlord as you would like to be treated, your rental experience will be positive!
