Helpful Hints for Landlords

  • Provide EV POA with the phone numbers/email addresses of owner and local caretaker / property manager; and/or property owner’s phone numbers/email addresses. This could allow us to help resolve differences & problems before being forwarded to the board for resolution. Please email this information to Ted Hanley at tedhanley@eaglevail.org.
  • Give your neighbors these numbers. They can help the absentee owner by notifying them of problems such as broken pipes, ice dams, inconsiderate renters/guests, etc.
  • Information that should be included in a lease:
    • A copy of EagleVail’s covenants, rules & regulations
    • List number of occupants and provide penalties if that number is exceeded. For long term rentals, make sure this number of occupants is in line with the Eagle County building code. (No more than four (4) unrelated people can reside in one residence).
    • Provide penalty provision if rules & regulations are broken
    • Number and types of pets.
    • Requirement to maintain curb appeal (mowing, etc.) if applicable.
    • Parking Rules (where they can and can’t park on the property). Make sure this includes no parking on the street and yards.
    • RVs, snowmobiles, jet skis, trailers, etc., may not be stored on any property unless inside a garage.

 

It’s always a good idea to provide Renters and Guests with a list of the most prevalent concerns that our guests may face in EagleVail in order to make their visit as enjoyable as possible:

  • Parking Rules (where they can and can’t park). The most common complaint here is parking on the wrong side of a duplex. Make sure this includes no parking on the street and yards.
  • Dogs must always be on a leash at all times, including in parks and on the golf course, unless within a fenced yard or house. Make sure to clean up after your dog always.
  • Trash/Recycle Pick-up day. Trash cannot be put out until the morning of the pick-up day as bears, birds, dogs, etc. will create problems. Containers should be tightly closed. Containers must be put away by the end of pick-up day.
  • Unreasonably loud or annoying noise. Many complaints here center on arrival and departure of guests to quiet neighborhoods and hot tub activities.
  • Rules about moving cars to allow for adequate snow plowing in the winter. This includes no “on-street” parking.
  • RVs, snowmobiles, jet skis, trailers, etc., may not be stored on any property unless inside a garage
