RENTAL POLICY AND SPECIAL MEMBERSHIP
Only Active Members may lease property to a third party. Any Active Member may lease such Member’s property subject to the following terms and conditions.
SECTION 1 All leases shall be in writing. No lease shall be for a term of less than twenty-eight (28) consecutive days, and no more than three (3) times per calendar year. The year in which the lease term commences shall determine the year in which the lease occurs. All of the terms, conditions and provisions of the Association’s Rules and Regulations, Bylaws, and the Declaration recorded at Book 480, Page 2211, Ashtabula County Recorder’s Office, all as have been or may be amended from time to time (collectively the “Governing Documents”)shall be applicable and enforceable against any person occupying the property as a tenant or Guest to the same extent as the property owner, and the lease shall contain or be deemed to contain a covenant on the part of the tenant and each occupant of the property to abide by the Governing Documents, designating the Association as the property owner’s agent and granting the Association the authority to terminate any lease and evict the tenant in the event of violations by the tenant of such covenant. The property owner shall be liable for all damages, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, arising out or pertaining to any violation of the Governing Documents committed by such owner’s tenant and the tenant’s spouse, family members, Guests and invitees without prejudice to such owner’s right to collect any sums paid from the tenant. No subleasing or assignment of lease rights shall be permitted.
SECTION 2 Any property owner wishing to obtain Special Membership for the tenant shall apply to the Association office, provide all information deemed necessary or appropriate, and agree to be responsible for and remain in compliance with all Governing Documents.
SECTION 3 Special Membership may only be granted for the tenant, the tenant’s spouse, and the tenant’s unmarried children residing at the leased property, each of whom may be entitled to a family pass and the use of facilities. A delinquent Member is not eligible for Special Membership.
SECTION 4 Other family members and friends of the tenant are considered Guests and shall only be permitted upon Association properties and facilities when accompanied by a card-carrying Special Member. Each Special Membership Unit is limited to nine Guests at any one time. A delinquent Member may not be a Guest.
SECTION 5 While the Special Membership year begins May 1st of any one year and ends April 30th of the next year, fees paid by the tenant for Special Membership are not subject to prorating or assignment regardless of rental period. Fees may or may not be the same as for property owners and may differ according to class of renter as determined in the sole discretion of the Association’s Board of Directors.
SECTION 6 No Special Membership Rights shall be granted for a period of less than 28 days. Special Membership ends immediately upon the expiration or termination of the lease and all rights revert immediately to the property owner. The tenant’s watercraft shall be removed on or before the expiration and termination of the lease and, if not, shall be considered abandoned and the property owner shall be responsible for all liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, incurred in connection with the disposal or removal thereof.
CLASSES OF RENTERS/SPECIAL MEMBERS
Class I If the Member has one property, the Member shall pay all Association charges and shall agree in writing to give up Active Membership except for the right to vote. The Member may authorize a Special Member to vote on an eleven-month basis by executing a Special Member Voting Proxy supplied by the RRA Office.
The tenant shall pay all applicable fees for any boat permits. Proof of ownership and insurance are required.
Class II If the Member has more than one property, the Member shall pay all Association charges for every property owned.
The tenant(s) shall pay all applicable fees for any boat permits. Proof of ownership and insurance are required.
SECTION 8 The violation of any term, condition or provision of the Governing Documents, including but not limited to the Rules and Regulations, by the Special Member(s), the Special Member’s family members, or Guests may, at the discretion of the Association Office Manager or Association officer, result in the limitation, suspension or revocation of the Special Membership.
SECTION 9 The property owner shall indemnify and hold the Association harmless for all damages, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, arising out or pertaining to any violation or enforcement of the Rules pertaining to rentals and Special Memberships. In addition, each day that a tenant occupies the property in violation of the rule requiring a minimum term of twenty-eight (28) consecutive days shall be deemed to be a separate offense for the purpose of determining the applicable fine and/or penalty.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Rules and Regulations as amended herein shall be posted on the Association’s website with a notice advising members that the Associations’ Rules and Regulations pertaining to rentals and special memberships have been amended.
