LEASE MONEY and DOWN PAYMENT FROM YEAR TO YEAR
October 15th is the end of the current tenant period. It is at this time where you decide if you want to return the next year or not. If you are not returning you must have rv unit off the site by Oct 15th, the year you leased. If you want to return the following year you then can ask for ap-plication for lease before Oct 15th current year. You have then a choice to take unit home to store it for the winter or leave it here on the site. But you can only leave it here if : you pay the $500 down payment. In the fall, along with your final utility bill and application to lease: is a request for a down payment. A down payment of $500 at the least: will reserve and secure your spot for the following season starting April 15 each year. This is nonrefundable even if you decide later that you are not staying the following year. On or before Jan 15h, each year, the remainder of the lease money is due. If lease money is not received, it becomes delin-quent, you are then in jeopardy of losing your spot. You have become subject to The Ranch RV Park revoking and not accepting your application for lease agreement. This means that the spot may and will be leased to someone else and you must remove your unit from property immediately upon notice, which could be given by any of the following ways: text message, phone call, letter, in person, by email or any other form that is deemed necessary.
So keep this in mind:
Down payment of no less that $500 is due back with final year’s utility payment and signed application for lease papers. $500 secures your current rv spot and in the event that you decide to terminate your application to lease any time after sending it in, you forfeit that $500. Utility bills and $500 deposit and application to lease is due upon receipt and be-comes delinquent Oct 31 that current year. The above described paperwork will only be sent out once by text , phone call or mail. Remember, at any time you can come up to the clubhouse, tell us you want to continue to stay at our park and pay your down payment early.
Delinquent down payments can and will become subject to: you no longer having the right to use this space for your unit and you must remove it immediately.
We can’t say it enough; it is a 6 month lease & runs from April 15th to Oct 15th each year. We allow you to leave your units here over the winter if you want to as long as the $500 down payment or more has been paid when requested in the Fall.
After January 15th of the new current year, and no payments have been made to Ranch RV Park for this current year, you are considered delinquent and the application to lease that was extended to you may and will be revoked, you no longer will be able to lease from Ranch RV Park. If your unit is still on that site after January 15th, you the tenant agrees to remove it when Ranch RV Park requests you to move it out. Ranch RV Park
