Things to consider
SANTEE VILLAGE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION
PRIOR TO YOUR MOVE
To insure proper scheduling, please contact the property management company at your earliest opportunity to reserve a time(s) for your move-in. At that time you should review any questions that you might have regarding these Move-In procedures.
You must also submit a Move-In/Move-Out Agreement, which may be obtained from the property management company prior to your move. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 7 days advance notice is required
MOVING FEE AND SCHEDULING
Each owner must schedule their move-in date and sign the Move-In Agreement stating that you understand that a non-refundable fee of $150 plus a deposit of $500 must be delivered to the property management company office five (5) working days prior to the scheduled move-in. The deposit is applicable to all damage, repair, cleaning, losses or other liabilities and charges incurred as a result of the move. Additionally, the owner accepts total responsibility for the cost of any damage, repair, cleaning, losses or other liabilities that may exceed the amount of the deposit.
TIMES YOU MAY MOVE
Move-In/Move-Outs will be conducted between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily, Monday through Saturday, except for the following Holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Yom Kippur and Christmas Day. Sundays are reserved as a time of quiet enjoyment for all residents and therefore no moving is allowed on Sunday. An appointment to schedule a move-in or move-out of the building must be
made seven (7) working days in advance of the move. Please contact management to schedule moves and deliveries. Unscheduled moves will result in fines.
If you are using a professional moving company, be sure to inform them that it will be necessary to park large moving trucks in the a legal manner. This may require obtaining a permit from the city of Los Angeles. If you have any questions or concerns about the size of the vehicle you intend to use, please discuss this matter with the property management company PRIOR to the day of your Move-In.
Your Moving Company
Please choose your moving company carefully! You, as the unit owner, are fully responsible for any damage done to the Common Area or Association Property during your move. Because of this liability it is important that the moving company carry its own insurance for such damage.
If you plan to move from out-of-state, please either use a destination (local) agent for the company or instruct the driver to call the property management company a minimum of seven (7) working days in advance to coordinate the time of arrival. Owners who wish to move in without using a professional moving company may do so providing they meet all the requirements of the moving companies as stated.
THE MOVING COMPANY MUST PROVIDE PROTECTIVE COVERING FOR
THE ELEVATOR CAB WALLS DURING THE MOVING PROCESS. IT IS THE
MOVER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THESE ARE IN PLACE
PRIOR TO BEGINNING THE MOVE. IN THE ABSENCE OF PROTECTIVE
COVERINGS, ALL LARGE ITEMS MUST BE WRAPPED IN MOVING
BLANKETS. NO MOVES WILL BE PERMITTED IF THE PROTECTIVE COVERINGS ARE NOT FULLY IN PLACE. THE OWNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL COSTS FOR REPAIRS NECESSITATED BY THE MOVE.

The size of the historic elevator and hallways. THE FINISH ON THE ELEVATOR AND HALLWAY WALLS IS EASILY DAMAGED AND
EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR. Measure your large items to be sure they fit through the standard door openings and elevators.
At no time are the front doors to the building to be left open.
AFTER MOVING IN
Boxes and Packing Materials
At the end of the move the hallways and elevator must be cleared of all debris. All trash and debris must be carried off-site on a daily basis by your moving company. The trash dumpsters inside the garage may not be used for disposing of debris. Please contact the property management company for further details. Any owner who disregards this regulation by leaving packing materials and boxes in the hallways will be required to cover the cost of having a contractor remove this nuisance and fire hazard.
FUTURE MOVES & DELIVERIES
In the event that you find it necessary to move or have any items delivered that require two (2) or more persons to transport, you must file the Move-In/Move-Out Agreement with the Association prior to such a move or delivery and schedule the delivery/move with the property management company in advance. A walk-through before and after the
move will be conducted with the individual or individuals making the move or delivery. Please remember the intent of these guidelines is to assure the enjoyment of all and to minimize damage to common areas. Thank you for your efforts and consideration.
