Info for Residents

We ask you to always contact the CHR office for any maintenance help. Our maintenance worker is busy and can’t take calls for any service to be performed until a written work order has been issued by the office.

Blades EarthCare has done a great job assisting us with lawn maintenance and landscaping. Please be sure that vehicles, potted plants, lawn furniture, and other outdoor items are not in the way of the landscapers.

Annual inspections will occur throughout the year at time for your re-certification. We will mail a reminder letter two weeks prior to your inspection.
When you receive your Social Security benefit notification in the mail please bring it to the CHR office so we may make a copy. We must have a copy of this letter to process your annual re-certification.
If you are filing a tax return, please bring a copy into the office for your annual re-certification.

Income Changes

Report Changes in Income
Please remember to report an increase or decrease in income. A 10% change in your annual income may warrant an increase or decrease in your monthly rent amount. It is important to know that failure to report an increase in income could result in repayment of any unpaid rent and/or termination of your lease.

Rent Payments

Rent Due
Rent is due on the 1st of each month and you have a grace period until the 5th at the close of business before a $40.00 late fee will be assessed. If the 5th is a Friday, rent is due by 4 PM. If the 5th occurs on a holiday or weekend, rent must be in our office by 7:30 AM the next business day. Please remember that there is a drop box on the outside of the office building for after-hours and weekends. Thank you for paying your rent on time.
