Strict Noise Ordinance:
We have a strict noise ordinance that must be followed. No loud noises, music, or load vehicles are allowed between the hours of 9:00 pm and 7:00 am.
When a renter is in violation of this ordinance SoCal Vacations would receive a call from the City Compliance line in order to contact the guest and get the noises to stop, this will cost the guest $250 that would be charged to the Credit Card on file for the first communication. (Please note SoCal Vacations reserves the right to evict Guests for noise complaints from the property with no additional warnings.)
If the guest fails to comply with the rules, the SoCal Vacations team member would go to the house and talk with the guest again, this will create an additional fee in addition to the first one of $500.
If a 3rd call is received for the same reasons, the guest would need to vacate the property.
Please note Code Enforcement may also fine you up to $1,000 per violation.
