Rules of the Gulfview Condominium and Information for Guests and Lessees
These rules and regulations have evolved from the experience of the Gulfview Board of Directors and management and in compliance with the appropriate laws of the State of Florida (Condominium Act Chapter 718).
For the enjoyment of all persons, and to maintain the quality status of our building, adherence to these rules is mandatory.
The Association may terminate any Lease Agreement and evict a Lessee for failure to abide by the rules and regulations. Owners may be subject to fines.
Although many of these rules are applicable to owners as well as Lessees and Guests, owners should refer to the booklet entitled “Gulfview Club Condominium Owner’s Information” concerning other obligations relating to ownership. Specific rules relating to the conduct of Vendors and Contractors are located for distribution in the building office.
The Board of Directors has made management responsible for the enforcement of the Rules and Regulations. If corrective action is beyond the scope of their duties, they will refer such action and complaints to the Board of Directors.
All residents must register with the Association upon arrival. In case of emergency, local authorities must know which units are occupied and the number of persons in each unit.
If you have a problem or emergency when the office is not open, please contact the attendant in the lobby for assistance or dial the office number (239-394-6104) to contact the attendant.
Building office hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM. If you have a problem or emergency when the office is not open, please contact the attendant in the Lobby for assistance, or dial the office number to contact an attendant. An attendant is on duty until 12:00 midnight. An activated fob must be used after midnight for entrance into the lobby. If no other means of entry is available after that time, access may be gained by calling the office number. If this is necessary, a “lock-out” fee of $50.00 will be charged.
Security of the building should be of the utmost concern to all of us. All outside doors shall be kept locked at all times and shall not be blocked open for any reason. Do not let anyone into the building unless you can identify them and will be responsible for them. Please note that our building is under 24 hour camera surveillance.
For your safety all common areas of the building are sprinkled. Fire alarms are located in all units, with speakers capable of being heard from the bedrooms. Pull stations are located at all egress areas of the building. There are three stairwells, one at the end of each hallway and one by the elevators. In case of emergency, once outside, do not block doorways or driveways.
Please be aware that tampering with the smoke detector in your unit will send a signal to the Fire Department.
If you have a true fire emergency, dial 911.
Telephone Entry System
The entry phone is programmed to dial each apartment. The corresponding owner’s or annual renter’s name is listed on the directory along with the code to dial the apartment.
