No Smoking

 

Resident and all members of Resident's family or household are parties to a written lease with Landlord (the Lease). The following additional terms, conditions and rules are hereby incorporated into the Lease. A breach of this Lease Addendum shall give each party all the rights contained herein, as well as the rights in the Property Rules and the Lease.

 

1. Purpose of No-Smoking Policy. The parties desire to mitigate (i) the irritation and known health effects of secondhand smoke; (ii) the increased maintenance, cleaning, and redecorating costs from smoking; (iii) the increased risk of fire from smoking; and (iv) the higher costs of fire insurance for a non-smoke-free building;

 

2. Definition of Smoking. The term “smoking” means inhaling, exhaling, breathing, or carrying any lighted cigar, cigarette, or other tobacco product or similar lighted product in any manner or in any form.

Electronic Cigarette The term “electronic cigarette” means any electronic device that provides a vapor of liquid nicotine and/or other substances to the user as she or he simulates smoking. The term shall include such devices whether they are manufactured or referred to as e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes or under any product name.

 

3. Smoke-Free Complex. Resident agrees and acknowledges that the premises to be occupied by Resident and members of Resident's household have been designated as a smoke-free living environment. Resident and members of Resident's household shall not smoke anywhere in the unit rented by Resident, or the building where the Resident's dwelling is located or in or within 25 feet of any of the common areas such as entry ways, stairwells, patios, office, commercial entry and community room of the rental community, nor shall Resident permit any guests or visitors under the control of Resident to do so.

4.Resident to Promote No-Smoking Policy and to Alert Landlord of Violations. Resident shall inform Resident's guests of the no-smoking policy. Further, Resident shall promptly give Landlord a written statement of any incident where tobacco smoke is migrating into the Resident's unit from sources outside of the Resident's apartment unit.

5. Landlord to Promote No-Smoking Policy. Landlord shall post no-smoking signs at entrances and exits, common areas, hallways, playgrounds, and in conspicuous places adjoining common areas of the apartment complex.

 

6. Landlord Not a Guarantor of Smoke-Free Environment. Resident acknowledges that Landlord's adoption of a smoke-free living environment, and the efforts to designate the rental complex as smoke-free, do not make the Landlord or any of its managing agents the guarantor of Resident's health or of the smoke-

free condition of the Resident's unit and the common areas. However, Landlord shall take reasonable steps to enforce the smoke-free terms of its lease. Landlord is not required to take steps in response to smoking unless Landlord knows of said smoking or has been given written notice of said smoking.

 

7. Other Residents are Third-Party Beneficiaries of Resident's Agreement. Resident agrees that the other Residents at the complex are the third-party beneficiaries of Resident's smoke free addendum agreements with Landlord. (In layman's terms, this means that Resident's commitments in this Addendum are made to the other Residents as well as to Landlord.) A Resident may sue another Resident for an injunction to prohibit smoking or for damages but does not have the right to evict another Resident. Any suit between Residents herein shall not create a presumption that the Landlord breached this Addendum.

 

8. Effect of Breach and Right to Terminate Lease. A breach of this Lease Addendum shall give each party all the rights contained herein, as well as the rights in the Rules and the Lease. A material breach of this Addendum shall be a material breach of the Lease and will be good cause for immediate termination or non-renewal of the Lease by the Landlord. Additionally, if Resident should breach this Addendum, Resident shall reimburse Landlord for any and all expenses incurred to restore the unit to a smoke free condition.

 

9. Disclaimer by Landlord. Resident acknowledges that Landlord's adoption of a smoke free living environment, and the efforts to designate the rental complex as smoke-free, does not in any way change the standard of care that the Landlord or managing agent would have to a Resident household to render buildings and premises designated as smoke free any safer, more habitable,

or improved in terms of air quality standards than any other rental premises. Landlord specifically disclaims any implied or express warranties that the building, common areas, or Resident's premises will have any higher or improved air quality standards than any other rental property. Landlord cannot and does not warranty or promise that the rental premises or common areas will be free from secondhand smoke. Resident acknowledges that Landlord's ability to police, monitor, or enforce the agreements of this Addendum is dependent in significant part on voluntary compliance by Resident and Resident’s guests. Residents with respiratory ailments, allergies, or any other physical or mental condition relating to smoke are put on notice that Landlord does not assume any higher duty of care to enforce this Addendum than any other landlord obligation under the Lease and Rules.

 

 

Fire Safety and Protection

 

Your apartment home located at 4115 Roosevelt Way NE in the city of Seattle County of King, Washington has been equipped with one (1) smoke detection device(s) as required by RCW 48.48.140.

 

Allegro apartments have units that have Smoke detection device(s) which may be either hard wired or battery operated depending on individual apartments. If battery operated, the unit(s) has been inspected and is properly operating at the commencement of tenancy. Under the law, it is the Resident’s responsibility to maintain the smoke detection device(s) in proper operating condition in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, including providing it with replacement batteries as needed.  A fine of not more than TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS ($200.00) is imposed for failure to comply with these provisions of RCW 48.48.140(3).  Failure to maintain the smoke detector is also grounds for termination of tenancy.  However, if liability or damages occur because of a Resident’s failure to maintain the unit, you may be open to potential lawsuits (see WAC 212-10-050).  Resident also agrees to test the smoke detector for proper operation once a month and report any malfunctions to the landlord in writing.

 

The above-named property does have the following fire protections:

 

  • a fire sprinkler system

  • a fire alarm system

  • an emergency notification plan for its Residents

  • a carbon monoxide detector

  • an emergency relocation plan

  • an emergency evacuation plan

  • a smoking policy.  The smoking policy is listed above.

 

 

Mold and Mildew

 

Resident acknowledges that it is necessary for Resident to provide appropriate climate control, keep the Unit clean, and take other measures to retard and prevent mold and mildew from accumulating in the Unit. Resident agrees to clean and dust the Unit on a regular basis and to remove visible moisture accumulation on windows, walls and other surfaces as soon as reasonable possible. Resident agrees not to block or cover any of the heating ventilation or air conditioning ducts in the Unit. Resident also agrees to immediately report to the management office:

(1) any residence of a water leak or excessive moisture in the Unit as well as in any storage room, garage or other common area;

(2) any evidence of mold-or mildew-like growth that cannot be removed by simply Appling a common household cleaner and wiping the area;

(3) any failure or malfunction in the heating, ventilation or air condition system in the Unit; and

(4) any inoperable doors or windows.

 

Resident further agrees that they shall be responsible for damage to the Unit and Resident’s property as well as personal injury to Resident and Occupants resulting from Resident’s failure to comply with the terms of the Addendum.

 

A default under the terms of this Addendum shall be deemed a material default under the terms of the Lease, and Lessor shall be entitled to exercise all rights and remedies at law or in equity. Except as specifically stated herein, all other terms and conditions of the Lease shall remain unchanged. In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Addendum and the terms of the Lease, terms of the Addendum shall control. Any term that is capitalized but not defined in the Addendum that is capitalized and defined in the Lease shall have the same meaning for purposes of this Addendum as it has for purposes of the Lease.

 

Reducing Grease, Fats, and Oil in Your Apartment

 

 

Reducing fats, oils, and grease going down your kitchen sink prevents sewer problems. Following these DO’S and DON’Ts will help you and your neighbors avoid expensive sewer backups, plumbing emergencies, and rate increases to cover sewer maintenance and repairs, while helping protect water quality in your community.

 

DO

 

Properly dispose of cooking oil or grease by pouring it into a sealable container and placing it in the trash. To recycle large amounts of oil and grease you can take it to one of these locations:

 

Pacific Rendering Co. Inc.
4034 West Marginal Way SW
Seattle, WA 98106
Tank (black) located at fence entrance of parking lot

 

General Biodiesel Seattle Plant
6333 First Avenue S
Seattle, WA 98108
Tank (round) located on riverside of the plant by glass door entrance

 

Central Market
15505 Westminster Way N
Shoreline, WA 98133
Open daily 7am - 11pm

 

 

  • Scrape food scraps into the trash, NOT the sink.

  • Wipe pots, pans, and dishes with dry paper towels before rinsing or washing them. Throw the paper towels in the trash as they are not compostable.

  • Place a strainer or screen over the sink drain when rinsing dishes, or when peeling or trimming food, to catch small scraps. Put the scraps in the compost not down the drain. For more information you can go to www.seattle.gov/util

 

DON’T

 

  • Don’t use a garbage disposal or food grinder. Grinding food up before rinsing it down the drain does not remove fats, oil, or grease (FOG) it only makes the pieces smaller. Even small food scraps can plug your home’s sewer lines. So, don’t put food of any kind down the drain.

  • Don’t pour cooking oil, pan drippings, bacon grease, salad dressings, or sauces down the drain.

  • Don’t use cloth towels or rags to scrape plates or clean greasy dishes, when you wash them the grease will end up in the sewer.

  • Don’t run water over dishes, pans, fryers, and griddles to wash grease down the drain.

 

All Guests must acknowledge and agree to abide by the rules as specified by the city of Seattle.
