04. Schedule of Standard Charges
The Schedule of Standard Charges details expenses that you may have to pay in addition to rent and security deposits. Within the Leasing Packet Digital Folder, locate the form titled "4. Schedule of Standard Charges Scattered Sites 2019" and print this form.

Residents within the Scattered Site program are responsible the costs related to damages and upkeep issues at their unit when the work needed has resulted from resident waste, neglect or abuse.

Maintenance charges are billed at $40.00 per hour, with charges assessed in 30 minute increments. Residents will be charged the costs for repair parts and contracted services.

Residents living in single family homes or side by side duplexes are responsible for lawn mowing, weeding, and raking leaves, in addition to shoveling snow from all paved surfaces. Failure to complete this required work can result in maintenance charges and lease violation citations if the Housing Authority completes the work. In addition, the resident will be responsible for municipal fines issued as a result of a failure to complete this work.

Tenant rent is due on the 1st of each month, and the Housing Authority provides a grace period through the 5th of the month. Rent received after the 5th of the month is late and will be assessed a $15.00 late fee.

If a resident completes payment via check and the check is returned for non-sufficient funds, the resident will be charged all fees incurred by the Housing Authority - up to $25 - and will be provided up to 72 hours to issue a new payment by certified check or money order.

Additional resident charges are assessed when items are abandoned at move out time, if municipal violations are issued at the unit resulting in fines, when the Housing Authority receives any charges or fines related to utilities in which the resident is responsible for, and related expenses.

To complete the form, print the Head of Household Name next to HOH Print, add the date, then sign and include your new address with the Housing Authority.
05. Access Authorization
The Access Authorization form is an important preparedness document that is used if all household adults experience a serious life event that will prevent them from returning to the unit. The Housing Authority will review this form to determine what non-household adults you have granted access to your unit to coordinate the move out of items and cleaning of the unit.
