Sandpiper Rules and Regulations

These rules have been adopted to provide for the enjoyment, safety and best interests of the unit owners, guests and renters at Sandpiper. They are not intended to create unnecessary or unreasonable restrictions or hardships, but instead to promote enjoyment and safety of Sandpiper. Courtesy and common sense are the foundation of our Rules.

The intent of our rules includes the Golden Rule — treat each other and the property of Sandpiper as you would want to be treated, including your property. The Rules also provide remedies for enforcement so that violation of the Rules has consequences. Sandpiper management and staff have been directed to enforce these rules equally, fairly and consistently.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on Sandpiper property, except in the parking lot
(with proper disposal of butts, not thrown on the ground). We prefer there also be no smoking by
Owners within their own unit, but as privately owned, Owners can decide for themselves within the
unit only. Restricted areas of no smoking include all units (unless by Owner within their unit), unit
balconies, all walkways, stairwells, elevators, pool and deck areas, grass courtyard areas east of the
building, 7″ floor recreation room and balcony, tennis court, shuffleboard courts and putting green.

2. An Owner that allows guests to use the Owner’s unit without the Owner in residence
must notify the office in advance of the use by the guests, and the guests must check in at the office
upon arrival and obtain a parking permit. Overnight or multi-day guests must also fill out a
registration form in the office. An owner may not invite or allow guests to use the Sandpiper
property (including parking, pool areas or for access across Sandpiper property to the beach), unless
the guest has the use of the interior of the Owner’s unit during their visit.

3. Owners who rent their unit through off-site rental agents, or who rent directly to the
renter, must notify the office in advance of such use, and such renters must check in at the office
upon arrival, fill out a registration form, and obtain a parking permit.

4, For guests of Owners and for renters, the number of overnight occupants of a
condominium unit cannot exceed the bona fide sleeping arrangements of that unit.

5. No nuisances shall be allowed upon the Condominium property, including any
practice that is a source of annoyance to Owners, guests or renters, or which interferes with the
peaceful possession and proper use of the Condominium property by such persons.

6. Noise shall be kept to a minimum between the hours of 11:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. This
includes stereos, televisions, radios or other such equipment being turned down to a minimum
volume during the quiet hours.

7. Owners, guests and renters are responsible for the compliance with these Rules by
their children. Supervision must be exercised with respect to young children on the condominium
property. Children are not to play or race on the walkways, stairways or around the parking lots.

8. Any owner or permitted guest or renter, intending to host a special group function at
Sandpiper, shall advise the office in advance, including the type of function and number of persons
attending. The office will provide the function host any special instructions and requirements for
hosting the special function, including parking requirements.

1. No towels, clothing or other articles shall be hung or shaken from the balcony railings
or walkway railings, nor from the beachside walls of the first floor units.
 
2. Sidewalks, hallways, walkways, stairwells and entrances must not be obstructed in
any manner by order of the fire department.
 
3 All garbage must be properly bagged in heavy plastic bags, tied and deposited down
the designated trash chutes. No boxes, cardboard or large items of any type are allowed in the trash
chutes. If trash chutes are full or clogged, do not leave garbage bags on the walkways, but take the
trash to the dumpster rooms and notify the office of a clogged chute. Completely close the doors to
the trash chutes after use.
 
4. Luggage and grocery carts must be returned to the ground floor stair areas for use by
others. Do not leave them on the upper floors or in the elevators.

cooking surface are permitted. No gas or charcoal grills can be stored or used on the building
premises nor on the condominium grounds. No cooking/grilling is permitted on the condominium
grounds, including on the ocean side of the building, including on the grass or pool deck areas, nor
anywhere in the parking lot area.

Please leave the laundry area clean. Empty lint filter on dryer after each use. Please be courteous
and remove clothing as soon as cycle is completed. Use two tablespoons of soap per load or if using
a cap to measure, use no more than 1/4″ of the capful. Too much detergent will leave clothes soapy

Volusia County to allow such construction. Any construction activity shall be limited to Monday

her family, guest or renter. Any hearing for enforcement shall be held before a committee of three or
more of the Board of Directors. If the committee does not agree that the unit Owner should be fined,
