Pets are required to be on a leash (no greater than 5 feet in length) at all times when outside of a residence. Pet waste must be picked up and disposed of in trash receptacle. Multiple pet stations and trash receptacles are located throughout the community.

Renting Your Property
If your unit is a rental property, or soon to become one, here are few tips that will help landlords, tenants and the Association.
- Get your license – The City of Greenbelt requires owners who intend to rent their property to obtain a rental license. This must be renewed annually and an inspection of the property is required. Attached is the license application. <Link to City document>
- Educate Prospective Tenants – Be sure to inform prospective tenants about the special considerations of living in a homeowner’s association before they sign a lease.
- Use a Lease Addendum – It is recommended that you attach an addendum to your lease that covers the specifics of the community and requires rents to adhere to the association’s rules. A good lease addendum should include:
- A requirement that the tenant to obey the bylaws, rules and regulations of the Association. (Provide tenant with copies)
- A requirement that the tenant pay fines for association rule violations.
- A requirement that the tenant pay replacement cost for lost parking permits.
- Inform the Association – Once your lease is signed, provide the Community Manager with a copy. Additionally, contact information for your tenant and property manager should be provided as well.
