Unit Owners are responsible for use of their units and must make guests and lessees aware of the Rules and Regulations. Rules and Regulations may be added, deleted or revised from time to time by the Board of Directors.
Seaplace Declaration and Bylaws shall govern all matters not covered by these Rules and Regulations.
Seaplace is a residential community and individual units shall not be used for any other purpose. No occupant of a unit shall commit or permit any nuisance or illegal act in the unit or in common areas. Occupancy of a unit is limited to two adults per bedroom.
With the exception of support animals allowable for disabled individuals in conformance with Section 760.23, Fla. Stat., and Section 804 f3B of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended by the Fair Housing Act of 1988, owners, guests, or lessees are not permitted to bring pets onto the premises. Any owner, guest or lessee arriving at Seaplace with a pet, without receiving prior Board approval, will not be allowed to enter Seaplace property with the animal.
Delivery of appliances and furniture, and moving in or out, is prohibited before 8:00 a.m. and after 7:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday.
Excessive noise will not be tolerated before 8:00 a.m. or after 10:00 p.m. Radios, televisions, stereos and amplified equipment must be kept at a minimum volume, as well as loud conversations on balconies. Parties within units should not spill over into halls or disturb neighbors. Impact noises or use of motorized tools are prohibited between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday. If determined by the Association that a disturbance is unreasonable, regardless of the time of day, then it will also be termed a nuisance to other residents and must be discontinued or corrected.
Common areas comprise all portions of the premises other than the units and the limited common areas. All common areas must not be obstructed and kept free of any materials that are unsightly or hazardous. This includes toys, floats, rafts, bicycles and shoes. A small number of decorative, reasonably sized objects may be used near unit entries provided they do not obstruct entry or encroach upon the interior walkway.
Owners are responsible for their own actions, as well as those of their lessees, guests, contracted workers and employees. When defacement or damages occur in common areas, by accident or as a result of imprudent actions, assessments will be made. Charges will include the full cost of repair or replacement of damaged or lost items or for cleaning or restoring the area to its proper condition.
Longboat Key ordinance prohibits the use of grills and other smoke and odor emanating cooking devices on patios, balconies, lanais, or in any common area except in designated areas.
No alteration, decoration or painting is permitted on the exterior of buildings, except as provided by law. Clothing of any time, towels or unsightly objects may not be hung on balconies or patios. Lanais may not be used for storage purposes. The following activities are prohibited: placing any screen, blind, awning, carpeting or other water-permeable floor covering on any balcony or lanai; placing any drapery, curtain or blind at a unit's windows without a solid light color facing the exterior; erecting any exterior lights or signs; placing any signs or symbols other than the U.S. flag in windows; erecting or attaching any structures or fixtures within the common or limited common elements.
Owners may add hurricane shutters in compliance with Seaplace, Town, State, and Federal Standards after securing the written approval of the Association.
Occupants shall not allow anything to fall or be thrown from windows, doors or balconies. No sweepings shall be ejected from any unit.
