Overview of move-in guidelines
Many Sparrow homes are located in communities and Home Owner Associations (HOA) that often offer fabulous amenities such as community pools, parks, playgrounds, walking trails, etc. Sparrow maintains the payment of the HOA fees so that you can enjoy the benefits of living in an HOA community. If your home is located in a community with an HOA, you are responsible for compliance with the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) that govern the community. In order to take advantage of these amenities, you will need to self-register with the HOA and pay any required amenity access fees to be granted access devices (e.g., keycard or pass). Please note that reimbursement for any additional monies paid over $50.00 will be credited to your ledger upon submitting proof of payment to your Property Manager.
Your Sparrow home is a Smart Home! That means your home is equipped with a front door smart lock, alloy hub and smart thermostat. This allows you to manage the security and comfort of your home from your mobile device while reducing heating and cooling energy costs by up to 15% per year.
At Sparrow, we require you to obtain and maintain personal liability insurance (“Renter’s Insurance”) of at least $100,000 per occurrence. This insurance can help pay for some out-of-pocket expenses associated with damage or injury to others should you be held responsible. Prior to the start of your lease, you will need to pay for and provide a copy of the policy and/or proof thereof.
We want to make paying and managing your utilities as seamless as possible. We are here to help! We activate utilities (water, sewer, gas and trash) except electricity and pay all of the required utility deposits so you don’t have to be out-of-pocket for these costs when you start your Sparrow lease.
