1.    RENT PAYMENTS – To be mailed first class and arrive on or before the due date to 1026 Sherman Ave., Madison, WI 53703.
      Lessee agrees that late payments are subject to a fee equal to 5% of the monthly rent or $50.00, whichever is less. If a check fails
      to clear the bank, a service fee of $40 will be charged to the Lessee, and shall be treated as delinquent rent. The service fee for the
      NSF check is in addition to any applicable late fees.
2.    UTILITIES – If Lessee has agreed to pay utility charges, and there is a joint meter, it is agreed that Lessee will be responsible for
      ½ the total bill if the building is a 2-unit, or 1/3 the total bill if the building is a 3-unit. Lessor will put the joint meter on a budget-
      payment plan with Madison Gas & Elec. And Lessee will include their share of the utility payment with each month’s rent.
      Failure to make timely utility payments shall be treated in the same manner as delinquent rent.
3.    PETS – Lessee agrees that under no circumstances shall pets or animals/reptiles (including those of visitors) be allowed in or
      about any dwelling. Lessee further agrees that in the event a pet is brought into Lessee’s dwelling, Lessee shall pay a charge of
      $10.00 for each day such animal remains in the dwelling as well as 100% of all damages caused by same. Assessment of such a
      charge by Lessor shall not be deemed a waiver of the foregoing prohibition.
4.    WATERBEDS – Lessee agrees that there shall be no waterbeds allowed without Lessor’s prior written consent. Lessee further
      agrees that in the event a waterbed is brought into Lessee’s dwelling, without authorization, Lessee shall pay a charge of $10.00
      for each day such bed remains in the dwelling as well as 100% of any damage which may be caused by the waterbed. If
      authorization is given to have a waterbed, Lessee shall be required to provide an insurance binder showing Lessee is covered for
      any damage which might occur from use of the waterbed. Assessment of a charge by lessor shall not be deemed a waiver of the
      foregoing prohibition.
5.    HALLWAYS – Any damage done to common/shared hallways by Lessee or guests shall be the responsibility of all Lessees
      sharing that hallway, and any such damages may, at Lessor’s option, be deductible from Lessee’s security deposit.

      consent of Lessor. This includes, but is not limited to, outside antennas/wires, air conditioners, portable washers/dryers, waterbed
      heaters, aquariums, refrigerator/freezer, etc.
7.    HOOKUPS – Lessee agrees to install telephones only where there are existing hookups unless prior written authorization is
      given by Lessor. Lessor must approve cable TV hookups. The lessee shall be responsible for any and all service connection fees
      or charges and for any changes to the existing wiring or service.
8.    SMOKE DETECTORS – Madison General Ordinance 34.14(12) provides that it is the responsibility of the Lessee to inform the
      Lessor in writing of any malfunction of any smoke detector, including the need for a battery. The Lessor shall have 5 working
      days upon receipt of the notice to repair or replace the smoke detector or battery. Lessee shall keep the smoke detector in place at
      the location in which it was installed and with the battery in place. If a smoke detector(s) is not in the installed position at the end
      of the lease term, Lessor will replace the same at Lessee’s expense. Please note that interfering with fire alarm systems or
      tampering with or removing without authorization, smoke detectors or fire extinguishers is a crime in the State of Wisconsin.
9.    FURNISHINGS – Furnishings are not to be removed from the dwelling without written consent from Lessor.
10.   LIGHT BULBS, VACUUM CLEANERS, ETC – Lessee shall provide their own vacuum cleaner and shower curtain(s).
      Lessor will furnish one light bulb for each light fixture. Lessee shall maintain each fixture with like bulb during lease period.

13.   PLUMBING – In accordance with Line 41 of the lease, Lessee has 7 days to notify Lessor of any plumbing malfunctions in their
      dwelling. Lessor shall insure that all plumbing is functioning properly when premises are received by Lessee. From this point,
      Lessee shall be responsible for any maintenance necessary to keep drains open and free of grease, hair, garbage, etc. Lessor
      advises that Lessee provide their own toilet plunger so as to avoid a possible emergency call for overflows. Never flush sanitary
      napkins, tampons, facial tissue, paper towels, cotton swabs or dental floss down toilet. Any damage caused by the misuse of the
      toilet will be the responsibility of the Lessee, and may be deducted from the security deposit if not previously paid.

      At no time shall occupancy exceed zoning limitations. Despite the foregoing, nobody is allowed to reside at the Rooming House

      conditions: (a) all rent for dwelling must be paid up to date; (b) prospective lessee must have an acceptable credit history and/or
      signature of credit-worthy guarantor; (c) in a partial sublet, all remaining Lessees must approve (disapproval must be
      substantiated in writing); and (d) a $25 sublet fee is to be paid at the time written authorization is given. Lessee understands that

      comply with the same.
16.   CHECK-IN FORMS – Lessee will be provided with check-in and check-out forms at the time keys for dwelling are issued. If
      check-in forms are not returned to Lessor within seven days, Lessee shall be deemed to have acknowledged that the dwelling was
      received in satisfactory condition and in good repair.
17.   RENTER’S INSURANCE – Lessee is responsible for the safety of their possessions from any and all hazards, including fire,
      theft and the elements. In this regard, it is highly recommended that Lessee Purchase renter’s insurance from a reputable
      insurance firm. Any storage space in the building provided by Lessor is furnished gratuitously and is not a part of the leased
      premises. The Lessor shall not be responsible for any loss or damage to any property stored in any such storage space. Lessee, in
      making use of such space, does so at their own risk.
18.   RECYCLING – Lessee agrees to abide by any rules or regulations which are now or may become law requiring the recycling of

      case of emergency when necessary to protect or preserve the premises or to protect the health or safety of the lessee. In such a
      case, a key shall be provided to the landlord within 48 hours, or as soon thereafter as practicable, and the landlord shall have the
      right to replace the altered lock. It is the Lessee’s responsibility to use, at all times, the locks provided on their apartment doors
      and windows. Lessee shall make duplicate keys only as specified in paragraph 20, below. Any and all locking doors shall be
      tightly closed immediately after going into or out of the building. Lessee agrees not to hold open any locking door for any
      person(s) who are neither tenants of the building nor guests of the Lessee. Lessee shall promptly inform the authorities of the
      presence of harassment by any unauthorized person(s) in any of the common areas of the building.
20.   ACCIDENTAL LOCKOUT/LOST KEYS – If Lessee is locked out of their dwelling, Capital Lock and Security is the only
      locksmith authorized by Kozak Apartments to duplicate keys. They are able to duplicate keys from code or from a roommate’s
      key with authorization from Lessor. There is, of course, a fee for this service, which shall be paid by the lessee. They are located

    motorcycles without prior written consent from Lessor.

    other residents and neighbors. There shall be no improper noises or odors in the premises. At no time shall any Lessee nor their
    guests use any roof surface of the building for recreation or any other activity. AT NO TIME SHALL ANY LESSEE OR THEIR

    all expenses associated therewith. Lessee also agrees that at the end of the lease period, Lessee shall insure that dwelling is left in
    a clean and tenantable condition and in good repair. Including the refrigerator emptied and cleaned, freezer compartment
