                           Mill Crossing Condominium Association



     A. RULES REGARDING ENFORCEMENT
            1. Any Homeowner found to be in violation of any of the provisions of the Declaration,
               By-Laws or Rules and Regulations of the Mill Crossing Condominium Association
               adopted by the Board of Directors may be subject to a flat or daily fine as determined
               by the managing agent or appropriate personnel of the Association upon notice and an
               opportunity to be heard.
            2. Enforcement action can only be undertaken following receipt of a signed complaint.
               Such complaint form can be submitted by any Homeowner or legal resident that
               observes a violation. The managing agent, upon personal observation of a violation,
               can also complete said complaint form.
            3. The managing agent, as a duly appointed representative of the Board of Directors, is
               authorized to accept signed complaints and to levy fines according to Appendix A,
               Schedule of Fines.
            4. If a Homeowner violates, or is otherwise liable for a violation (by lessee, resident,
               personal guest, resident‟s guest, etc), any of the provisions of the Declaration, By-Laws
               or Rules and Regulations of the Mill Crossing Condominium Association (herein after
               “Association”), the following shall occur:
                    a. Upon a first violation, the managing agent or appropriate personnel of the
                        Association shall notify the Homeowner. Notification of Violation shall be in
                        writing and shall specify the alleged violation, the portion of the Declaration,
                        By-Laws or Rules and Regulations allegedly violated, and the date and manner
                        of the alleged violation.
                   b. If, in the determination of the managing agent or appropriate personnel of the
                        Association, the violation is not rectified or if repeated violations occur, the
                        managing agent or appropriate personnel of the Association shall levy a fine as
                        defined in Appendix A of this document. In cases where there are repeated
                        violations, each violation is subject to a fine as defined in Appendix A.
                            i.       The Board of Directors (herein after “Board”), under authority
                                  granted by the Declaration and By-Laws, shall act as arbiter or judge
                                  (as the circumstances may require), and the decision of the Board is
                                  final and is binding upon the Homeowner.
                            ii.      Section “A”, Paragraph 4, subparagraphs “a” through “f” (below)
                                  describes the options of the Homeowner against whom charges have

                                                                                           Page 6 of 59

                                been made. Any fines determined appropriate, up to and including
                                $100.00 per violation plus costs and/or expenses, shall be prescribed
                                and/or determined by the managing agent or appropriate personnel of
                                the Association.    (NOTE: Section “B” below, entitled “MOVING:
                                Condominium and/or Townhouse Units” is recognized as an exception
                                to this Part, and the provisions thereof shall stand alone, as written).
                    c. Upon a second similar violation or a continuation of the first violation after
                        notification (see “a” above), an additional fine may be levied against the
                        Homeowner at the discretion of the managing agent or appropriate personnel of
                        the Association. Any further costs and/or expenses incurred by the Association
                        shall be in addition to all charges, assessments, costs and/or expenses levied
                        per “a” above.
                    d. Notification (per “a” and/or “b” above) may also contain such requirements or
                        demands as are necessary to protect the interests of the Association, in
                        accordance with the provisions of the Declaration, By-Laws and/or Rules and
                        Regulations of the Association.
            5. Any Homeowner assessed hereunder as part of their Common Expenses shall pay such
               charges within 30 days of notification that such charges are due. Failure to make
               payment within the time so specified shall subject the Homeowner to all legal or
               equitable remedies necessary for the collection thereof.
            6. The remedies hereunder are not exclusive, and the Board may, in addition thereto, take
               any action provided for in the Illinois Condominium Act or the Declaration and By-
               Laws to prevent and/or eliminate violations thereof or of any of the Rules and
               Regulations of the Association.
            7. Protest. If any Homeowner feels that they have been wrongfully or unjustly charged
               with a violation hereunder, the Homeowner may proceed as follows:
                    a. At the time the Homeowner is notified of a violation, they will also be advised
                        that they may, if desired, appeal the violation and fine at a meeting of the
                        Board at a time and date specified on the Notice of Violation. At that time, the
                        Board will hear and consider arguments, evidence or statements regarding the
                        alleged violation. The complainant need not be in attendance at the hearing
                        and may submit a written argument instead; however, the Board shall have a
                        signed complaint.



                                                                                             Page 7 of 59

                            i.        The Board and Management shall hold name and address of
                                 Complainant in confidence.
                   b. Within 10 days after the Homeowner is notified pursuant to subparagraphs “a”,
                        “b”, or “c” of Section A, Paragraph 1, said Homeowner may, instead of
                        attending the hearing as described in “a” above, submit in writing an argument
                        to the Board stating the reasons that the Homeowner feels they (or anyone for
                        whom they are being held responsible) have not committed a violation.
                   c. Should a protest be filed, a hearing on the matter shall be held before the
                        Board no later than the next regularly scheduled Board meeting following
                        receipt of the written protest. The hearing shall be controlled in the manner as
                        shown in 7.a. above.
                   d. All fines shall be held in abeyance during such appeal process.
                   e. Should no protest be filed, and/or the Homeowner does not attend the hearing,
                        the allegations in the Notice(s) of Violation shall be considered true and taken
                        as if confessed. The decision of the Board shall be made in private, and shall
                        be final and binding on the Homeowner.
                   f. Notification of the Board‟s determination shall be rendered to the Homeowner
                        in writing.




                                                                                          Page 8 of 59

               foreclosure, no unit, or interest therein, shall be leased for transient or hotel purposes.
               The Association, subject to an order of possession, may take control of a unit and rent it
               out to recover unpaid assessments from the collection of rent.

                        obligations of the Homeowner making such lease, and the failure of the lessee
                        to comply with any of the terms of said instruments shall constitute a default
                        under the lease, and the lease shall expressly so provide. The Homeowner
                        making such lease shall not be relieved thereby from said obligations.

                    c. A valid certificate of content insurance covering those items internal to the

                        Office at all times.
                    d. 10-days prior to a resident moving in the Homeowner must supply to the
                        Management Office a copy of the lease.
                    e. All leases must be between the Homeowner and the resident occupying the
                        unit, no subletting is allowed.



                                                                                           Page 9 of 59

                    h. In the event that a resident moves out without prior notification to the
                        Homeowner, the Homeowner must notify the Management Office as soon as
                        they become aware the move out has occurred.
                            i.      All fines are applicable for moving out without notifying the
                                 Management Office as provided in these Rules and Regulations.
            3. Occupancy of a unit by a blood relative(s) of a Homeowner without the Homeowner
               being a resident, shall not constitute a lease as defined under this Rule, even if a written

                    c. All of the items in paragraph 2 of this section are applicable even though this is
                        not considered a lease arrangement.
            4. Hardship. If a unit that is not currently being leased is vacated by the Homeowner for
               reasons beyond their control and cannot be sold in the 120 days following the vacating
               of the unit despite reasonable efforts of the Homeowner to sell said property, the
               Homeowner may apply for a one year hardship waiver in the following manner:
                    a. The Homeowner must submit a request in writing to the Board of Directors
                        requesting a one year hardship waiver of Section B Paragraph 1 setting forth
                        the reasons why they are entitled to same.
                    b. If, based on the data supplied to the Board of Directors by the Homeowner, the
                        Board, at its sole discretion, finds that a reasonable hardship exists, the Board
                        may grant a one-year waiver. Any lease entered into shall be in writing and for
                        a period of one year. The lease must also contain a provision that failure by the
                        resident or the Homeowner to abide by the Rules and Regulations of the
                        Association may, at the discretion of the Board, result in termination of the
                        lease by the Board. All decisions of the Board shall be final.
                            i.      All of the provisions of paragraph 2 of this section are applicable.

                                                                                            Page 10 of 59

                    c. In the event a Homeowner has been granted hardship status, they must re-apply
                        within thirty-days (30) of the expiration of each hardship period if they wish to
                        request an extension.
            5. Any unit being leased in violation of this Rule or any Homeowner found to be in
                violation of any of the Rules and Regulations adopted by the Board may be subject to a
                flat or daily fine to be determined by the managing agent or appropriate personnel of
                the Association upon notice and an opportunity to be heard.
            6. In addition to the authority to levy fines against the Homeowner for violation of this
                Rule or any provision of the Declaration, By-Laws or Rules and Regulations, the Board
                shall have all rights and remedies, including but not limited to the right to maintain an
                action for possession against the Homeowner, under the Illinois Condominium Act, an
                action for injunctive and other equitable relief, or an action at law for damages.
            7. Any action brought on behalf of the Association to enforce this Rule shall subject the
                Homeowner to the payment of all costs and attorney‟s fees at the time they are incurred
                by the Association.
            8. All unpaid charges as a result of the foregoing shall be deemed to be a lien against the
                unit and collectible as any other unpaid regular or special assessment, including late
                fees and interest, if appropriate, on the unpaid balance.
            9. This Rule shall not prohibit the Board from leasing any unit owned by the Association
                or any unit that the Association has been issued an Order of Possession by the Circuit
                Court of DuPage County.

                    a. Homeowners are permitted to sell their Units under Articles of Agreement
                        (a/k/a contract sale) upon giving the Board of Directors not more than ninety

                   f. Contract Seller retains the right to vote in accordance with the Illinois
                        Condominium Property Act, unless said right is assigned in writing to the

                   g. Notwithstanding the agreement between the parties as to the payment of
                        Association dues, fines, and fees, Contract Seller shall be liable for all
                        payments due to the Association.

                        in good faith, or was intended to defraud or deceive the Association in order to
                        circumvent Association policies which restrict leasing, both the Contract Seller
                        and Purchaser shall be jointly and severally liable for any fines, costs and legal
                        expenses incurred either in the investigation or pursuit of legal action against

     C.     MOVING: Condominium and/or Townhouse Units
       1. TERMS
          For the purpose of these Rules and Regulations, the terms “move-in” and/or “move-out” shall
          refer to the acceptance or relinquishment of Homeowner occupancy involving a
          Condominium Unit or Townhouse Unit (hereinafter “unit(s))” within the Mill Crossing
          complex. The transfer of furniture to or from a unit is not a prerequisite to the imposition of
          these Rules and Regulations. Further, an increase or decrease in the numbers of occupants of
          a unit within the same family group (birth, death, marriage, divorce, adoption), shall not
          constitute a move-in or move-out.        In all instances a complete change of occupancy
          (acceptance or relinquishment) shall constitute a move-in or move-out, and shall subject the
          Homeowner to the requirements of this Section B.
          a) Partial move out/in and furniture deliveries. The Management Office is to be notified
              when a partial move out or move in (e.g.: a family member is moving out or in) or
              delivery of furniture is expected. Partial moves and furniture deliveries are not subject to
              the normal moving fees (paragraph C-4).
       2. MOVE IN:
              Management will collect the move-in fee and move-in deposit (see #4a) so as to ensure
              adequate time for obtaining mailbox tags, updating entrance intercom system, padding of
              the elevators (if required), updated census forms, obtaining vehicle stickers, etc. The
              move-in deposit shall be held until a completed census form has been supplied to the
              Management Office and the management agent has determined that no damage was
              sustained to the Common Elements.
              The Management Office must be notified at least 10 days prior to the date of the move in.
       3. MOVE OUT:
              Move-out deposits (see #4b) will be collected prior to Management issuing an assessment
              letter or right of first refusal. This deposit will be held for 10-days after the move out has
              been completed to ensure that proper procedures were adhered to, and that no damage
              was sustained to the Common Elements.
       4. MOVE-IN AND MOVE-OUT FEES
          a) A fee of $50.00 (cash or check made out to Mill Crossing Condominium Association)
              must be paid to Management upon notification of an anticipated move-in. This charge is
              for administrative costs, establishing accounts, mailbox tags (if required), and security




                                                                                            Page 13 of 59
Rules and Regulations
                           Mill Crossing Condominium Association

              coding, etc. This is a move-in charge and is in addition to any deposits or fees described
              below.
          b) A refundable deposit of $100.00 (check or money order made out to Mill Crossing
              Condominium Association) must be provided to the Management Office (1056 Mill
              Street, Suite 102) no less than 36 hours prior to a move-in or move-out. This deposit is to
              be applied toward the cost of repairing damage to the Common Elements, if any.
              Management shall make an inspection before and after the move. The moving resident
              may accompany Management during this inspection; however, the inspection will be
              conducted at Management‟s convenience. If the Association incurs no costs or damage,
              the security deposit will be mailed to the owner approximately ten (10) days after the
              move occurs.
          c) If any damage is caused to any Common Element(s), Management shall determine the
              cost of repair of the Common Element(s), and shall deduct that amount from the deposit.
              If there is any deposit balance left, it shall be refunded to the moving resident.
          d) In the event that damage to the Common Element(s) is determined to have a repair or
              replacement value in excess of the deposit, arrangements for the payment of the excess
              amount must be made:
                 If a move-out, at the completion of the move or the next business day;
                 If a move-in, payment will be required to be made within 10-days after notice is
                  given, or, at the Homeowner‟s request, it may be added to the next month‟s
                  assessment.
       5. REGARDING LEASES, the Homeowner will submit all necessary move-in fees, move-
          in/move-out deposits, and fully completed census card. Regarding a move-out, it is the
          responsibility of the Homeowner to see that all photo ID pool passes given to the resident are
          returned to the Mill Crossing Office prior to the move-out. Deposits will be held for 10-days
          following the move-out.
       6. CENSUS FORMS: A fully completed, up-to-date census form must be on file in the
          Management Office. The information contained thereon is considered privileged, and will be
          so held by the Management Office unless divulging same information is necessary for the
          health and/or welfare of persons or property within the Mill Crossing complex, or is required
          by Statute.
       7. Moving furniture or equipment of any kind through the front (court-side) entrance and
          garages is prohibited, except with written permission of Management.


                                                                                            Page 14 of 59

       8. Elevators in the 3-story buildings are passenger elevators -- not freight elevators. When pads
           are installed the elevators may be used only for small cartons and small pieces of furniture.
           No large furniture (e.g.: china cabinets, couches, pianos, organs, dressers, dining room tables
           or chests) may be moved on the elevator unless specifically authorized by management in
           writing. All items may be transported up or down the stairways.
       9. If any damage is caused to the elevator, or elevator pads, the Homeowner will be held
           responsible for all costs including, but not limited to, inspections, labor, repair or replacement
           of all damaged portions of the elevator, its enclosure, doors, lights, walls, controls, or other
           portions or appurtenances.
       10. At no time, under any circumstance, is anything to be moved or passed across or through a
           balcony or patio railing. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, any type of box,
           furniture, appliance, bag, clothing, and parcel.

           not obstructed. Vehicles used for moving shall not be left unattended and must never be
           parked in Fire Zones. If a Homeowner‟s ability to move their vehicle out of a parking space
           is compromised by the placement of a moving truck, then the moving truck is to be
           immediately moved to allow the Homeowner to move his/her vehicle.
       15. All moving of furniture and equipment must be done through the rear (parking lot side)
           entrances of all buildings, including Townhouses, except with written permission of the
           Management.
       16. Nothing may be moved in or out, over or through the balcony or patio railings at any time.

 D. PRIVATE VS. COMMON ELEMENTS
     1. Homeowners are responsible for all problems within their units. Generally, unit boundaries are
        the exterior walls of the unit; however, there are elements that, while exterior to the unit, are
        considered part of the unit because they provide service to only that one unit. These items
        include, but are not limited to: balconies and railed patios, electric service from and including
        the main breaker to and through the unit, plumbing, heating elements (i.e.: heating pipes
        including those under the floor and the zone valve), unit entry doors, sliding balcony doors,
        windows and individual mailbox locks.
         a.   Unless a problem within a unit could be an immediate hazard or cause damage to
              Common Elements or another unit, residents are to contact the Homeowner.
         b.   If a problem is causing a problem within another unit, Homeowners are to contact each
              other for resolution of the problem.
         c.   Management can assist in determining the cause of a problem, but resolution of the
              problem is the Homeowner‟s responsibility.
     2. Mill Crossing emergency number is to be called immediately if there is a problem that could be
        deemed a hazard or is causing damage to Common Elements.
         a.   In the case of a power outage, call the City of Naperville.

        floors), elevator, stairs, hallway doors, laundry room, storage rooms, boiler rooms, garbage
        shafts and rooms, front and back entryways, exterior walls, roofs, attic crawl space etc.
     4. In the Townhouse units, the Private Elements include everything within the brick walls that
        define your unit. This includes dry wall, plumbing, heating, attic and crawl space/basement
        areas. The roof is a Common Element.
     5. Common Elements also include all exterior space owned by Mill Crossing Condominium
        Association.
     6. Homeowners are responsible for any actions on their part that cause damage to the common
        elements (i.e. hallway carpet stains, damage to elevators) and will bear the cost of any needed
        repair/cleaning to restore common element to previous condition.
     7. The Board, under authority granted by the Declaration and By-Laws, shall judge whether an
        element is Private or Common, and the decision of the Board is final.


                                                                                           Page 17 of 59

                 ii. Violation(s) of said Chapter 4 can be considered by the Board to be reason for
                     permanent removal of the offending pet from the Mill Crossing complex.

             maintenance personnel. Opinions expressed at the time of the emergency may, or may
             not, have a bearing on the determination of the Board. If it is determined by the Board
             that the cause for services originated within an individual unit, that Homeowner will be
             held responsible for all material and labor costs involved in the repair.
        3.   Homeowners are not required to use Association maintenance personnel for repairs and/or
             replacement within their unit. Homeowners may contract with any licensed and bonded
             repair service for repairs/replacement within their unit. Homeowners are responsible for
             all services for which they contract and cannot obligate the Association to pay for services
             for which the Homeowner has contracted.

             of the Association, the Homeowner may submit the receipt showing they have paid in full,
             along with a full, written explanation of the need for the repairs and why the Homeowner
             believes the Association should be responsible, to the Board for its consideration. At the
             sole discretion of the Board, based on the written explanation submitted by the
             Homeowner and a similar report from Management, the Board may assume full or partial
             liability. If the Board determines the Association has full or partial liability, it will
             authorize Management to reimburse the Homeowner for that portion of the bill. The
             Board will not consider a bill that has not been paid in full by the Homeowner prior to
             submission.



                                                                                         Page 21 of 59

        5.   If the cause for services is determined by the Board to have originated in another unit, or is
             found to have been the result of a breakdown in another unit, the Homeowner suffering
             such breakdown or causing the need for service will be liable for payment accordingly.
        6.   The Association is not responsible for damage to an individual unit caused by failures or
             breakdowns originating from within another unit, nor is the Association responsible for
             the costs incidental thereto.
        7.   Contractors, vendors and service providers contracted by the Association will take
             direction only from the Management. No Homeowner shall interfere or interrupt any of
             the authorized activities of any contractor, vendor or service provider working under the
             direction of the Management. Residents who interfere with the authorized activities of
             any contractor, vendor or service provider working under the direction of the Management
             shall be subject to a fine at the discretion of the Board.
        8.   Homeowners must take immediate corrective action when service is needed within their
             unit and damage to Common Elements or another unit is occurring and/or lack of service
             poses a hazard to persons or property.
             a. Lessees must immediately notify Homeowners if above mentioned services are
                required.
        9.   For non-emergencies, Homeowners may contact the management office Mon-Fri, 9:00am-
