To All MLC Properties and Management Tenants,
This summer, we enjoyed some of the best weather we've seen in a very long time. I hope you had a chance to enjoy it!
It’s been quite a while since our last newsletter; we would like to welcome our new tenants throughout Chicago and the suburbs. Welcome all!
As I do most fall/winter newsletters, I want to remind everyone who has a porch or balcony that EVERTYTHING has to be removed. This is now a city ordinance, and if we get a citation because your porch or balcony is not cleared off, you will be responsible for the city fine. (You will have until November 12th. to comply.)
Winter is Coming
Please make sure that you remove your air conditioners from your windows. Our maintenance crews will take care of the air conditioners for Ivy Park residents. The heat is on now, and those of you who have furnaces in your unit will get new filters; please make sure that your furnace is clean. Those of you who have radiators, please make sure that there are no leaks (please take the time to look). If you see any leaks please contact the office via your portal or email. If you experience that your unit is still a little drafty, we suggest you put plastic up over the windows.
This is also a good time to make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are working. Remember, it is YOUR responsibility to change your batteries and make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms work. If they are not working after you change the battery, please contact the office.
Those of you who have back porches, please avoid using them if they are snowy and frozen.
As you know the city is experiencing a city-wide rodent problem. Please DO NOT leave any garbage at your back doors, decks, etc. Please make sure you put your garbage in the dumpsters. Ivy Park tenants, please make sure you put your garbage out on Monday and BRING IN THE CANS after the garbage is taken out.(THIS IS A CITY REQUIRMENT).
By now you should be familiar with your Tenant Portal where you can pay rent online and send us any type of communication. You can also contact our offices and submit work orders via our website (mlcproperties.com) As you know, we are big believers in COMMUNICATION.
Please, communicate with us for any need that should arise. That being said, all rent is due on the first of the month and a late fee will be accessed on the 6th. There will be NO exceptions.
As the weather gets colder, people tend to stay at home more, so please remember to be courteous to your neighbors. We all have to live together so please be aware of the hour of the day/night, loud music, parking issues, garbage, etc.; your neighbors will appreciate your consideration. Flossmoor tenants, please continue to support the stores downstairs.
Lastly, we are acutely aware that you have many choices of housing and management companies. We appreciate your selecting our buildings and want your experience with us to be exceptional.
Wishing you and yours a fantastic holiday season!
Marty and the entire staff at MLC Properties and Management
