Winter is coming! Which means life will get a bit more messy with the winter weather that comes with it. We want to remind tenants of the snow removal procedures we have here at Housing Hub.
If you live in a single family home, you are responsible for all snow removal, per your lease agreement. Due to city regulation and the property owner’s direction, if you do not shovel your driveway and sidewalks in a timely manner, we will have to remove the snow and unfortunately issue a tenant charge.
If you live in a multi-unit building, plow trucks will be dispatched after 1.5 inches of snow or more, and will be on site within 24-hours after the snow stops falling to clear a path through the parking lot and clear sidewalks.
Parking lots will only be plowed curb to curb when snow accumulation is 6 inches or more. In that case, you will need to move your vehicle from the lot within 24-hours of the snow stopping, or we will tow it. We will send out email and text notifications when you need to move your car, so please be on the lookout for those notifications. We need all cars moved from the parking lot in order to fully plow the lot.
If you live in a duplex, our crews will be dispatched after 1.5 inches of snow or more, and will be on-site within 24 hours after the snow stops falling. We highly recommend tenants keep salt on hand to de-ice any sidewalks or walking areas caused by small snow accumulations.
Again, we will send out text and email notifications when cars need to be moved from parking lots for curb to curb plowing. Our goal is to make sure tenants know what their snow removal responsibilities are, in order to avoid any potential tenant charges.
