Noxious, destructive, offensive or unsanitary activity shall not be carried on or upon the premises. No owner or resident or occupant may use or allow the use of their property or any portion of the community at any time, in any way, which may endanger the health or property of other occupants, residents or guests, unreasonably annoy, disturb or cause discomfort to any resident or their guests or do any act which in the Board’s discretion, constitutes a nuisance. The intention of this provision is to grant the Board of Directors, on behalf of the Dutch Island Homeowners Association, the right of redress for actions, activities or conduct which unreasonably disturbs or impairs the peaceful safe enjoyment of the community. In this regard, specific unauthorized unreasonable annoyances or disturbances shall include, but not limited to, the following:
- Any fighting, screaming, shouting, excessively loud playing music, raucous behavior either inside or outside at any time if such conduct can be heard during normal course of activities by any other residents.
- Any threatening or intimidating conduct towards any resident, guest or pet.
- Any conduct, which in the Board’s reasonable discretion, creates any danger or risk of injury or damage to property or creates any threat to health or safety. Any non-resident committing one of the acts as set forth above who has gained entry into Dutch Island through any type of pass shall immediately have such pass revoked and may be subject to immediate eviction and removal from Dutch Island.
- Residences may be leased for residential purposes only. Residences may only be leased in their entirety, i.e., partial leases or the leasing of certain rooms within a Residence is strictly prohibited. All leases shall have a minimum term of nine (9) months. “Short Term” and “Vacation Rentals” are strictly prohibited. A copy of all leases, together with contact information for each Occupant, including phone number and e-mail address, shall be given to the Board of Directors by the Owner of the Residence within thirty (30) days of entering into a lease. All leases shall require that the lessee acknowledge receipt of a copy of the Declaration, Bylaws and rules and regulations of the Association and shall also obligate the lessee to comply with these documents. Any violation of the Declaration, Bylaws, or rules and regulations adopted pursuant thereto by the lessee, any Occupant, or any person living with the lessee, is deemed to be a default under the terms of the lease and authorizes the Owner to terminate the lease without liability and to evict the lessee in accordance with Georgia law. The Owner hereby delegates and assigns to the Association, acting through the Board, the power and authority of enforcement against the lessee for breaches resulting from the violation of the Declaration, Bylaws, and the rules and regulations adopted pursuant thereto, including the power and authority to evict the lessee as attorney-in-fact on behalf and for the benefit of the Owner, in accordance with the terms hereof.
