Parties - Why they are NOT permitted at our properties

We work really hard and invest a lot of time and money to ensure that you have a nice and secure home. For that reason along with many others, we have a no party policy in our lease.   Here are a few reasons why all of our tenants should follow this rule.

  1. Parties can result in eviction.    
  2. Unknown guests leave you, your belongings and our property at risk. 
  3. Parties can jeopordize our rental license.
  4. Noise from parties negatively impact your neighbors.
  5. Parties negatively impact our livlihood. 

 

PARTIES CAN RESULT IN EVICTION:
If you are evicted, it could prevent you from obtaining future housing and qualifying for a car or house loan. Eviction will negatively impact your credit and could impact your employment.  If you are evicted, you will incur many fees including loss of deposit, responsibilty for financial losses we incur and municipality charges/tickets.

UNKNOWN GUESTS LEAVE YOU, YOUR BELONGINGS AND OUR PROPERTY AT RISK
By allowing unknown guests into your home, you are putting yourself at risk for physical harm.  Parties frequently result in loss of personal property and damages to our property.  From stolen computers, grafittid property, broken windows - the cost can add up and the tenants are 100% responsible for these expenses.

PARTIES CAN JEOPORDIZE OUR RENTAL LICENSE
As owners and managers of the property, we make a promise to the city and the neighborhoods that our tenants will be responsible and respectful occupants.  If we break our promise in the way of a tenant having a party, our rental licenses could be revoked.  When we lose one license, we lose them all.  If we lose them all, our business that we have worked so hard to build is destroyed.

PARTIES NEGATIVELY IMPACT YOUR NEIGHBORS
There is a noise ordiance in Minneapolis that all residents must comply with after 10pm 7 days a week.  Your neighbors are made up of families, elderly couples, singles, doctors, teachers, moms, dads, babies, children, city inspectors, students, sick people, healthy people, those that wake up at 4am every day for work and many others.  Nobody enjoys being woken up due to noise from a party.  Your neighbors do not want to clean up after your guests or risk them or their kids getting injured from broken glass or rubbish left in their yard due to guests from your party.

PARTIES NEGATIVELY IMPACT OUR LIVLIHOOD
As I mentioned before, we could lose our rental licenses and therefore our business due to parties.  In addition to that, parties greatly tarnish the reputation that we have worked so hard to build with the neighborhood association, the city and the neighbors.
