Resident by taking possession of the Premises evidences the fact that the Premises (including appliances, furnishings, and fixtures) are in clean, safe, sanitary, and in good-working condition and that any exception has been or will be delivered to Owner in writing within 48 hours of taking of possession of the Premises. Owner makes no warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, and relies upon the fact that Resident has inspected the Premises. Resident agrees to maintain the Premises, appliances, furnishings, and fixtures in good condition throughout the term of this Agreement (excepting normal wear and tear). Resident will return the Premises to the Owner in the same condition as when Resident moved in (subject to normal wear and tear). Resident agrees to make no alteration or repair to the Premises (including painting, wallpapering, stickers, new locks, etc.) without first obtaining the prior written consent of the Owner, which permission may be withheld for any or no reason.

In case of malfunctions of equipment or utility damage by fire, water, or other cause, Resident shall notify Owner’s representatives immediately. Owner shall act with due diligence in making repairs; the lease shall continue, and rent shall not abate during such periods. Resident may not hire or allow any third party to perform work on the Premises without Owner’s prior written approval (or as allowed by law). Resident is responsible for, and will reimburse Owner for, any damages or loss caused to the Premises while Resident is entitled to possession of the Premises. This includes, but is not limited to: damages caused by the negligence, carelessness, abuse or intentional misconduct of Resident, Resident’s family, occupants, pets, guests or others. Resident shall indemnify Owner from any liability to any unapproved third party. Owner may assess costs for such damages when they occur. The intent is to require the Premises to be maintained in substantially the same condition as when Resident took occupancy. If the damage to the Premises, regardless of how caused, is substantial in the reasonable judgment of Owner, Owner may terminate this lease by giving written notice to Resident. Such termination due to damage may occur immediately if the Premises are uninhabitable. The costs of repairs, restorations and replacements shall be paid for by the Owner if rendered necessary by normal wear and tear. Otherwise, if such repairs, alterations or replacements are rendered necessary by the negligence, carelessness, accident or abuse of Resident and/or Resident’s guests or other third parties, then all such costs shall be paid by Resident. Resident agrees to reimburse Owner for all such costs within five (5) days of notice. Such reimbursement shall be a priority payment over all other obligations of Resident to Owner. Owner may periodically deduct such costs from Resident’s security deposit and Resident agrees to promptly reimburse security deposit to its original amount. It is agreed that Owner carries insurance for its own protection and that Resident is not a beneficiary of such insurance. None of Resident’s rent is considered to pay for insurance. Resident shall be responsible to Owner for all costs of repair for damages as stated herein regardless of Owner’s insurance. In the event Resident has complied with the Utah Fit Premises Act and is allowed to make repairs, Resident agrees that it will first obtain three independent estimates, utilize the lowest estimate and only use licensed and insured contractors to perform the repairs.
Right of Entry: Unless otherwise restricted by law, Owner may enter the Premises during reasonable hours with or without notice in order to inspect, make repairs, provide general or preventive maintenance, replace filters, leave any notices and/or any other reasonable business purposes while Resident is present in the Premises. If Resident is not present at the Premises, then Owner will have the same right to make such entries by duplicate or master key. If, in Owner’s opinion, there exists an emergency or a violation of this Agreement exists, Owner may enter without notice at any time for any inspection, repair, or to determine the condition or occupancy of the Premises. It is the intent of the parties hereto that this provision grant to Owner immediate access if Resident is in default of any term of this Agreement, immediate access if in Owner’s sole opinion giving notice could change an investigation, and that this provision be interpreted with the existing law to grant as broad and timely access as possible and permissible. Any request for maintenance or repairs shall be deemed to give Owner authority to enter the Premises without requiring notice or further permission. Owner may secure the Premises at any time Owner deems, in its sole discretion, that the security of the Premises may have been compromised, including but not limited to: death of a Resident, incarceration or hospitalization of a Resident, usage of the Premises by non-residents, and protection of Owner’s assets or security.
Contamination: Resident agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Owner against any and all claims, actions, causes of action, demands, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses of any kind, including but not limited to: attorney’s fees and court costs, that may be made as against Owner (its officers, directors, employees, agents, managers, and affiliates) as a result of or arising out of the growth or proliferation of mold or mildew or other contaminations in the Premises. It is further agreed that such indemnification shall extend to the existence of any contamination of any type from any person or cause that is unknown to Owner. Resident further agrees that it will not cause, hire, or conduct any inspection or testing to be done in the Premises for any type of contamination but may request that Owner conduct such testing provided Resident pre-pays the costs of such testing. Owner shall have the right to retain the third party certified testing of its choice. The results of such testing shall be the property of Owner who shall only be obligated to disclose positive results exceeding the legal limits. Resident further agrees that Owner shall not be liable for any damages caused to Resident, Resident’s guests, occupants, or any property within the Premises resulting from mold, mildew or any other contamination. Resident shall indemnify Owner from any liability relating to mold, mildew, or any other contamination resulting in damages to any person or property within Resident’s Premises regardless of the source. Resident agrees to immediately notify Owner of the existence of any mold, mildew, or other contamination within the Premises. Failure by Resident to diligently inspect and notify Owner of mold or contamination issues will result in Resident being liable for the damages to the Premises caused by the mold or contamination.
Military Clause: In the event Resident is or becomes a member of the Armed Forces on extended active duty and receives change of station orders to permanently depart the local area, then Resident may terminate this Agreement by giving thirty (30) days written notice as provided herein and by the Act. Resident may also utilize the Service members’ Civil Relief Act (SCRA) to otherwise terminate the lease as provided by such Act. As required by the Act, Resident shall be required to pay rent for thirty (30) days after the notice is given with appropriate documentation. Resident agrees to furnish Owner a certified copy of his official orders which warrant termination of this Agreement. Permission for base housing does not constitute a permanent order. Other termination as provided under the SCRA will be allowed as provided by that Act.
Disability: It is the policy of Owner to reasonably accommodate all handicaps and disabilities as defined under state and federal laws and as may be required under state and federal law. It is agreed that Resident shall notify Owner of any need relating to a disability or handicap (in writing if possible) to ensure the proper procedures are implemented to comply with existing laws. In the event Resident fails to notify Owner of any needed accommodation, Owner shall not be liable for damages suffered by Resident. It is agreed that Owner is under no obligation to accommodate Resident until proper notification with supporting documentation (if necessary) is provided to Owner and Owner has had the opportunity o grant or deny the accommodation or modification. Owner may deny and request that does not meet the necessary requirements, is not reasonable, or where the insufficient information has been provided to establish the required elements of the request.
Limited Liability: It is agreed that Owner will not be liable for any damages or losses to person or property caused by any Resident or any other person including, but not limited to, any theft, burglary, assault, vandalism, or other crimes. Resident agrees to be responsible for its own property and for its own safety. It is acknowledged and agreed that although Owner is responsible for the upkeep of common areas, parking lots, sidewalks, and areas of the community not subject to control by Resident, Resident agrees to accept liability and responsibility in the use of these areas. It is agreed that once Owner gives notice to Resident by any means of any potential hazard, it is Resident’s obligation to avoid the hazard or it assumes the risks of the hazard. It is acknowledged and agreed that Resident’s duty of care shall be significant as it pertains to its awareness of use of areas under control of Owner. It is the agreed intent of this Agreement (to the greatest extent allowed by law) that Owner shall not be liable for personal injury or for damage to or loss of Resident’s personal property (furniture, jewelry, clothing, etc.) unless caused by gross negligence of Owner, its agents, management, or assigns. It is specifically mutually agreed that Owner shall NOT be liable for any damages (personal injury or to property) directly or indirectly caused by any other occupant, resident, tenant or guest. Owner shall not be liable to Resident for any type of damages from fire, flood, water leaks, theft, rain, hail, ice, snow, smoke, structural problems, environmental issues, toxins, mold or mildew, or contamination left by prior residents, explosions, interruptions of utilities, acts of God, or negligent behavior of Owner or its agents, unless such injury or damage is caused by gross negligence of Owner or its agents. OWNER REQUIRES THAT RESIDENT SECURE RENTERS INSURANCE TO PROTECT AGAINST ALL OF THE ABOVE OCCURRENCES. Owner shall hold Resident liable for any damages caused by Resident, its occupants, guests and/or invitees including but not limited to fire, flood, explosion, water damage, and pests. Owner strongly suggests and recommends that Resident obtain additional insurance to protect its own belongings. Resident agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Owner and its representatives from any and all liability for actions or inactions of Resident which cause damage or injury to any party or person. Resident agrees that locks and latches are acceptable subject to Owner’s duty to make needed repairs upon request of Resident. It is acknowledged and agreed that Resident had other options available for obtaining housing and chose to enter into this agreement with the limitation on liability of Owner. Further, Resident acknowledges that it had to qualify to enter into this agreement. Upon payment of a reasonable charge, Resident shall have the right to require Owner to change (re-key) a door-lock for a fee. Resident may not place its own locks on the Premises or devices which prevent Owner entry. Resident shall pay for and replace smoke detector and/or carbon monoxide detector batteries as needed. If Owner’s employees are requested to render services not contemplated in this Agreement, Resident agrees to hold Owner harmless for all liability regarding the same. Owner may provide security patrols and/or security equipment for the purpose of protecting its property. However, Owner will not provide any security for residents. Each Resident is responsible for its own personal security and the security of its property. It is acknowledged that the premises have been occupied and used by other individuals and that Owner cannot represent what such persons have had or done within the premises. Resident acknowledges that it will not hold Owner, its agents, or employees liable for prior actions within the premises by other occupants or their guests, including such actions that may have unknown continuing residual effects on the premises. Owner does not warrant that other tenants will have or maintain renter’s insurance, and shall not be liable for damages resulting from the actions of such other tenants. Rental insurance obtained by Resident must have a non-subrogation provision as against Owner and Owner’s insurance. Resident expressly agrees and understands that Resident will not be considered a co-insured under Owner’s commercial insurance policy for purposes of subrogation, and Resident agrees to be responsible for damage resulting from a fire, flood, explosion and water damage caused by Resident, its guests, occupants, and invitees. It is the intent of the parties that this section be applied so as to provide the maximum allowable protection from actions against Owner and that any provisions determined to violate law or policy be severed only to the minimal extent possible leaving all other provisions intact. No officer, director, shareholder, employee, or agent shall have personal liability under the terms of this agreement.

GENERAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE:
ALTERATIONS/ADDITIONS/IMPROVEMENTS- No modification of walls, shelves, or closets may be made without prior approval. It is permissible for you to hang pictures, mirrors, etc., on sheetrock walls in your home, but use small hanging nails only. Do not use any type of foam stick-on hooks or hangars. Absolutely no nails are to be driven into plaster walls (use canvas adhesive hangars designed for plaster). If in doubt about what type of walls you have, contact the office. Please use a cutting board rather than chopping and cutting on kitchen countertops. Waterbeds and Trampolines shall not be allowed. Utilize existing telephone outlets. Owner or Agent does not service phone or cable wiring. Initially, it may be wise to set up these services with their line repair coverage until you are assured that all is in working order. Additional wiring, or drilling for wiring, is prohibited without prior authorization. Any approved modifications shall be Resident's expense. Contact paper is not to be used on walls, shelving, or appliances, no exceptions. Other similar products are available that are removable. No stickers or decals on refrigerators.
HAZARDOUS OR DANGEROUS MATERIALS- Nothing shall be stored in the premises or in the common areas, including storage space which would constitute a danger to the building or other occupants, including flammable and corrosive materials.
SMOKE & CO2 DETECTORS- For your safety, check detectors at least monthly. Detectors are your responsibility.
DISHWASHER/DISPOSER- (if provided) Use detergents made for automatic dishwashers only. Do not overload dishwashers. Turn on cold water before starting your food disposer. To keep your disposer in good working order, do not grind bones, rinds, coffee grounds, stringy foods, banana peels, glass, etc. If your disposer stops, check the reset button on the outside of it before calling the office. You will be charged for jammed garbage disposers.
WASHER/DRYERS- If the unit includes a washer and dryer it is the tenant’s responsibility to maintain the washer and dryer units. Tenants may only use detergents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets etc. as directed on the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not overload the washer or dryer. Washer and Dryer is not covered for maintenance. Tenant will be charged for maintenance and repairs for washer and dryer.
REFRIGERATOR- To improve cooling efficiency, keep the coils clean (usually in back or underneath). For older model refrigerators, defrost the freezer when frost is about one inch thick. DO NOT USE SHARP OBJECTS TO DEFROST! A hair dryer and plastic spatula work best. A puncture to the freezer coils may require replacement at your expense. Please be careful!
RANGE/OVEN- Be cautious with oven cleaner, abrasive cleaners, and scouring pads. They can damage or discolor exterior surfaces and can cause the thermostat and heat elements to short out. Replacement will be at your expense. Please follow directions. For gas ranges, some models require that you manually light pilot lights. If pilot light is lit and you smell a gas odor, contact Questar Gas.
GARBAGE PICKUP- Please ask a neighbor for garbage pickup days or use the dumpster, if provided. Do not park in front of dumpsters.
SEWER/DRAINS- All drains are working properly when you move in. It is your responsibility to maintain them. In the event that a drain becomes clogged, try plunging first, then contact a rooter service to clear the blockage. If it is determined that the cause of the blockage is roots or a problem with the main line, you will be reimbursed. We will send someone to unclog your drain and add it to your account if you prefer.
TOILETS- Do not put paper towels, sanitary napkins, tampons, cotton balls, or Q-tips in the toilet. Rooter service and any resulting damage caused by such items will be your expense. In the event that a toilet begins to overflow, quickly remove the tank lid and lift the float to stop the water from filling the tank, then close the flapper valve (usually a black rubber part in the bottom center of the tank) to stop tank water from going into the bowl. It is wise to show everyone in your household how to do this. Any damage caused by an overflowing toilet, tub, or sink will be at your expense. If handled properly, a plugged toilet should never overflow.
WINDOWS- Tenant is responsible for any glass, screen, or window breakage after move-in. Do not use stick-on insulation kits or seal windows shut with caulk. Removal of such items will be at your expense. No foil or unsightly window coverings permitted.
ELECTRICAL- In case of power failure, check circuit breakers before reporting malfunctions to the office. Turn to OFF, then back to ON to reset. Fuses: You will need to replace blown fuses (available at most drug stores). For emergencies such as no power or a line down, contact Rocky Mountain Power. Note: Do not overload electrical outlets. Hairdryers, microwaves, toaster ovens, space heaters, etc. should not be used on the same circuit. Use 60-watt bulbs or less to reduce heat and fire hazard as well as reduce utility cost.
FURNACE/HOT WATER HEATER- Follow directions on furnace or water heater to relight pilot lights, or contact Dominion Energy. Call our office for other problems. Resident is responsible for lighting pilot lights and changing furnace filters monthly, or as needed, unless noted otherwise. Frequent filter changes will keep your home and furnishings cleaner as well as reduce your utility bill. Check furnace for proper filter size. For child safety and economy, water heaters should be set at 120 degrees. Higher settings could result in accidental scalding.
WATER SHUT-OFF- Before your move in, locate the main water shutoff for the entire unit or home. It is usually located in the basement where the main water line enters the unit. If an interior water line breaks, or any other major leak occurs, shut the water off at this point and contact our office immediately. In most units, there are valves under sinks and toilets that can be shut off to isolate a leak. If an exterior water main breaks, call Salt Lake City Corp. at 4836900 (or your water district if different) for a shut off at the curb.
CARPET & FLOORING- Vacuum carpets frequently. Soiled carpets wear our faster. Carpet cleaning arrangements can be made through our office at your expense. Carpets are cleaned prior to move-in, you will be required to provide proof of carpet cleaning upon your move out when you deliver keys as required in your Move Out Instructions.

REQUIRED INSURANCE ADDENDUM TO LEASE AGREEMENT
This Addendum is attached to and becomes a part of the Residential Lease Agreement. For the duration of the Lease Agreement, Occupant is required to maintain and provide the following minimum required insurance coverage:
- $100,000 Limit of Liability for Occupant’s legal liability for damage to the landlord’s property for no less than the following causes of loss: fire, smoke, explosion, water damage, backup or overflow of sewer, drain or sump (“Required Insurance”).
Occupant is required to furnish Owner with evidence of Required Insurance prior to occupancy of leased premises and at the time of each lease renewal period. If at any time Occupant does not have Required Insurance, Occupant is in breach of the Lease Agreement and Owner shall have, in addition to any other rights under the Lease Agreement, the right but not the obligation to purchase Required Insurance coverage and seek reimbursement from the Occupant for all costs and expenses associated with such purchase.
Occupant may obtain Required Insurance from an insurance agent or insurance company of Occupant’s choice. If Occupant furnishes evidence of such insurance and maintains the insurance for the duration of the Lease Agreement, then nothing more is required. If Occupant does not maintain Required Insurance, the insurance requirement of this Lease Agreement may be satisfied by Owner, who may schedule the Occupant’s unit for coverage under the Landlord’s Required Resident Liability insurance policy (“LRRL”). The coverage provided under the LRRL will provide the Required Insurance coverage listed above. An amount equal to the total cost to the Owner for the LRRL coverage shall be charged to Occupant by the Owner. Some important points of this coverage, which Occupant should understand are:
- LRRL is designed to fulfill the insurance requirement of the Lease Agreement. Owner is the Insured under the LRRL. Occupant is not the insured under the LRRL policy.
- LRRL coverage is not personal liability insurance or renters insurance. Owner makes no representation that LRRL covers the Occupant’s additional living expenses or liability arising out of bodily injury or property damage to any third party. If Occupant requires any of these coverages, then Occupant should contact an insurance agent or insurance company of Occupant’s choice.
- Coverage under the LRRL policy may be more expensive than the cost of Required Insurance obtainable by Occupant elsewhere. At any time, Occupant may contact an agent of their choice for insurance options to satisfy the Required Insurance under this Lease Agreement.
- Licensed insurance agents may receive a commission on the LRRL policy.
- The cost to the Occupant for the LRRL coverage shall be nine dollars and fifty cents Dollars ($9.50) per month. Additionally, an Administration Fee in the amount of Three Dollars ($3.00) to be retained by the Owner for processing and handling will be charged.
- If your lease agreement includes a monthly Tenant Management Fee, then the LRRL policy is included.
Scheduling under the LRRL policy is not mandatory and Occupant may purchase Required Insurance from an insurance agent or insurance company of Occupant’s choice at any time and coverage under the LRRL policy will be terminated by the Owner.
TENANT MOVE – OUT INSTRUCTION
Thank you for honoring your rental contract by giving your Notice to Vacate in writing, in accordance with your Rental Agreement.
In an effort to assist you in receiving a full return of your refundable security deposit after vacating, we’ve compiled this checklist for your use in preparing the home. Once you’ve completed your cleaning requirements, please return your keys to the office at 1226 W South Jordan Parkway, Suite D South Jordan Utah 84095. We’re rarely in the office, so be sure to call us at 801-701-8033 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know when the keys have been dropped off. Keys must be returned before 5:00 p.m. on the last day of your lease. If your lease is terminating on a weekend, we have an after-hours drop box for your use.

To avoid misunderstandings in connection with your departure, we thought we would go over a few basic policies. Please remember that the security deposit cannot be used toward your rent.

Move-out inspections of properties are performed at various times throughout the week and can only be done after you have returned all keys to the office. Once the inspection is completed, you will be emailed a copy of it. If you do not receive a copy, please contact the office. Inspections are typically completed within 3 business days of receiving the keys. Utah law allows for 30-days from receipt of all the keys to reconcile your security deposit and complete the disposition.
We have attached a cleaning checklist, which will give you some guidelines for the final cleaning. These are just guidelines so please be thorough when cleaning your home. If the agent discovers repairs, maintenance, or necessary cleaning at the move-out inspection, the appropriate company or vendors will be asked to quickly correct tenant deficiencies.
Below is a list of items that may be used as a guide for cleaning the property when vacating. Again, this is just a guideline and more or less may be needed for your particular home.

To many, pets are family. As much as we would like to accommodate all pets, we’re not always able to do so. If the home you’re interested in is approved for pets, you’ll need to do a quick application as part of the qualification process. Below is our minimum criteria if pet(s) are allowed. It is to be understood that no pets of any kind are permitted without the specific written approval. There is a pet application charge which is administered by a third-party pet screening tool. Service and emotional support animals are required to be screened the same as all other pets, however there will be no fees charged.
There is a maximum of 2 pets per property with a total maximum weight of 75lbs. If you wish to apply for a home and have a pet, you will need to complete an online pet profile from our Pet Screening affiliate, petscreener.com. The pet application is $20.00 per pet and non-refundable. Once your pet profile has been completed, we will begin the approval process. If your pet is approved, you will be charged a non-refundable pet initiation fee of $75.00.
There will also be a non-refundable pet deposit, monthly pet rent and an annual pet inspection charge as determined by their Paw Score and company screening. Utah Property Solutions reserves the right to deny a pet application, regardless of the Paw Score.
