Common areas include every area of the property, inside and outside the livable space that is shared by all residents. Common areas are to be kept clear of personal possessions. This includes any supplies from the bathroom, and school books from the living room area. Items may be brought into the common areas for study, bathing, etc, but must be removed with tenant’s exit from that common area. If the common areas need to be cleaned to maintain a reasonable level of cleanliness the offending resident(s) will be charged.
