Units are the private property of the owner and, as such, the Property Manager does not have the right to enter a unit other than for an emergency. Owners may enter into a Vacant Home Care agreement with the Property Manager, which will authorize the manager to enter and inspect the unit in the owner’s absence. If the Property Manager notices that repairs or maintenance need to be performed, the unit owner will be notified so that repairs or maintenance can be authorized. For items not under manufacturer’s or Developer’s warranty, repairs or maintenance will be charged at the same rates as for the rest of the neighboring Marriott property whenever possible.
