RESIDENTIAL RENTAL AGREEMENT FOR INDIVIDUALS SHARING ACCOMMODATIONS
This agreement is made by and between Thunderbird Landing LLC (hereinafter “Management”) and __________________________________ (hereinafter “Tenant”), for the lease of the housing premises at Thunderbird Landing Student Housing, Cedar City, Utah. It is expressively understood that this agreement is between the Management and each and every Tenant, and the responsibility of the Tenants shall be joint and several. Management represents that these premises are in a good, clean and habitable condition, to which the Tenants hereby agree, except as they may deliver in writing to the Management within three (3) days of occupation of said premises. The parties further agree as follows:
1. Term: The Term shall begin on __________________________ and continue until ________________________. Tenants agree to vacate the premises at 12:00 noon on the final day of this Term unless other arrangements are made in writing.
2. Rent: The rent per Tenant shall be $3400.00 ($3200.00 for current tenants). Rent may be paid in one lump sum payment or per the following payment schedule: $500.00 of which is due on or before ____________________; $1450.00 ($1350.00 for current tenants) of which is due on or before ___________________________; $1450.00 ($1350.00 for current tenants) of which is due on or before ______________________. A late fee of $50 will be charged for each payment not received on or before the date due. In addition, legal action may be taken if rent is not paid by due date. These payments are based on six Tenants per apartment. No more than this number of people shall occupy the premises without the written consent of management. A $20.00 service fee will be applied on all returned checks. A returned check will also result in a late fee of $50.00 if proper payment is not made on or before the date due.
3. Security Deposit: A $300.00 deposit shall be paid prior to occupancy and returned by mail as provided by law within thirty (30) days following the end of this contract period, less damages caused by the Tenants and their guests, less an $50.00 carpet cleaning/painting charge, and a $25.00 utility handling charge. These security deposits shall not be applied to rent by the Tenants, but shall be used by Management at its option to reduce Management’s damages if Tenants(s) vacate the premises without suitable replacements while still under contract, fail to pay rent as agreed, or any other action or negligence causing damage including physical destruction of property, cleaning costs necessary to restore premises to the condition at the beginning of occupancy, and other costs provided for in this agreement. If a Tenant must vacate the premises for violation of any of the provisions of this contract, the entire security deposit shall be forfeited in addition to the about described damages, cleaning and lost rent charges. Retention of this deposit by the Management shall not relieve Tenants from paying the full amount of their contracted responsibilities.
4. Maintenance and Alterations: Tenants accept the premises as being in good order and repair, unless otherwise indicated. Tenants shall maintain the premises, including common areas and all furnishings therein, in a clean and sanitary manner, and shall surrender the same at termination in as good condition as received, normal wear and tear excepted. Tenants shall not paint or otherwise redecorate or make alterations to the premises without prior written consent of the Management. When Tenants move in, Management will furnish light bulbs; thereafter light bulbs will be replaced by Tenants. Tenants agree to notify Management of any malfunctions and to request repairs and services in writing, except in an emergency when telephone calls will be accepted. Tenants shall notify Management immediately of reasonably necessary maintenance. Management shall act with due diligence in making necessary repairs, and rent shall not abate during such period.
5. Tenants’ Personal Property: Management will not be liable or responsible in any way for loss or damage to person or property of Tenants or their guests unless due to negligence of Management. Management recommends that Tenants secure insurance against such losses.
6. Property Damage: All missing or damaged articles which are furnished with the premises by the Management shall be charged against the Tenants at replacement cost. Tenants are held responsible for all damages to the premises and furnishings caused by action or negligence by themselves or their guests including fire and water damage. Expenses or damage caused by stopping of waste pipes or overflow from showers, toilets or washbasins must be paid by Tenants. Failure to immediately report leaky faucets or any other conditions which result in property damage shall be considered Tenant negligence.

8. Right to Inspect: Management reserves the right to enter the premises at reasonable times for the purposes of inspection, maintenance, repairs, disturbances, and to show the premises to prospective Tenant, purchasers and appraisers.

10. Utilities: Tenant pays per Semester, the sum of $125.00 in addition to rent for utilities. Management uses the $125.00 to pay for natural gas, electricity, and water. If Tenant’s unit goes over the $750.00 ($125.00 per person) per semester, Tenants will be responsible for the overage. If Tenants are under, Tenants will be refunded the difference. Refunds and overages may be settled at the end of each semester, but refunds may be accumulated and refunded at the end of the school year at Managements discretion. Utility payments must be made on or before the date rent is due for each semester or incur a $50.00 late fee per week.

Tenants may obtain property by paying moving and storage costs. If Tenants fail to claim property within 30 days of notice, Management may make a reasonable effort to sell the property at its fair market value and apply the proceeds toward any amount the Tenants may owe. Any money remaining after such action shall be disposed of in accordance with UCA-78-44-11.

13. Waiver: No provision of this contract can be waived except by the written consent of Management and Tenants.
