The rent WILL NOT increase for twelve months or more if payment is made on time and without demand.

By my signature & date, all the above is true & accurate _______________________________

 3. PAYMENT OF RENT:  The initial payment of the rent and of the security deposit must be made by money order or cashier's check. Thereafter, monthly rent payments may be paid by check until the first check is dishonored and returned unpaid. Rent also may be paid by money order or cashier's checks made payable to Pregler Properties delivered to the Landlord on or by the first day of the month rent is due at PO Box 1602, Waterloo, IA, 50704-1602 or the drop box located at 3641 Kimball Ave, Waterloo, IA 50702 or at such other place as Landlord may designate or sent by mail at Tenant's risk. Postmark will be considered date paid. Rents lost in mail will be treated as unpaid until received.


4. PAYMENT POLICY: Any payment will always be first applied to outstanding balances, late fees or other charges, with balance of the payment applied to rent due. If it is after the 1st day of the month a 3-day notice will be served and any fee incurred by the process service will apply.


5. FEE FOR LATE RENT: In the event rent is not received prior to 6:00 p.m. on the 1st of the month [regardless of cause including returned checks], Tenant agrees to pay a late fee for days 1-5 @ $12.00 per day not to exceed a monthly late fee of $60.00 per month [IA Code 535.2(7)] for rents under $700/month and $20 per day not to exceed $100 for rents over $700. No excuses, such as ill health, loss of job, financial emergency or any other excuse will be accepted for late payment. 


6. RETURNED CHECK CHARGE:  If for any reason the check used by Tenant to pay Landlord is returned without having been paid, Tenant will pay: a returned check charge of $25.00 plus any penalty charged by Landlord's bank.  If for any reason a check is returned or dishonored, no checks will be accepted for future rent payments. Landlord may prosecute under Iowa theft statue [HF 527 July 1997], which includes bad rent checks as theft.


7. NONPAYMENT OF RENT:  In addition to Landlord’s other remedies provided by law, and without prejudice thereto, if rent is unpaid when due, and Tenant fails to pay rent per notice by Landlord of nonpayment and the Landlord’s intention to terminate this Rental Agreement if the rent is not paid within that period of time, then Landlord may terminate this Rental Agreement.   The cost of the process service will be charged to tenant’s account for the issue of each 3-DAY NOTICE TO PAY UNPAID RENT if any portion of rent remains unpaid by 6:00 pm on the 1st of the month. If rent is not paid within the three-day period, the Landlord will continue the eviction process.


8. DEPOSIT SECURITY: At the time of execution of this Rental Agreement, Tenant shall pay to Landlord in trust a security deposit to be held and disbursed as a rental deposit by Landlord pursuant to the provisions of the Iowa Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, 562A. Deposit may be in amount not exceeding two months' rent; is NOT last month's rent payment; is held as security against damage to property, appliances, other furnishings, or carpet beyond normal wear & tear, vacating the dwelling unit in less than the minimum rental period, unpaid rent, or eviction expenses. In the case of multiple tenants, any out-going tenant who leaves prior to the lease termination date relinquishes his/her interest in the Security Deposit unless the Landlord determines that the out-going tenant is responsible for damages exceeding his/her interest in deposit.


9: USE-ABSENCES: Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Tenant – and signed tenants alone - shall occupy and use the above-described property as a dwelling unit only.  No businesses. No undocumented or unapproved tenants. Tenant shall notify Landlord of any anticipated extended absence from the premises not later than the first day of the extended absence.

I have read and understood everything on this page: _________________________________




11. APPLIANCES: There may be appliances in unit, such as refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, clothes washer, dryer.  If Tenants wish to use these appliances, they agree to assume all responsibility for care and maintenance.  If Tenants wish to use their own appliances, they generally may do so and the owner's appliances may either be removed from the premises or stored on the premises. We will NOT reimburse you for spoiled food if your refrigerator has an issue.  One of the biggest issues in a refrigerator failing is over-stuffing the fridge, freezer or both!  Do not over-fill your fridge / freezer!


12. ACCESS: Landlord shall have the right, subject to Tenant’s consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, to enter the dwelling unit in order to inspect the premises, make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations or improvements, supply necessary  or agreed services, or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workmen or contractors; provided, however, that Landlord may enter the dwelling without Tenant’s consent, in case of emergency and as otherwise provided in the Iowa Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act.


13. PRESENT AND CONTINUING HABITABILITY: Tenant has inspected the property, and at time of possession the floors, carpets, walls, appliances, cupboards, windows, storm windows and screens, glass, and fixtures, acknowledges that they are in a reasonable and acceptable condition of habitability for their intended use, and that the rent agreed upon is fair and reasonable in this community for premises in their condition. In the event that the condition changes so that, in Tenant’s opinion, the habitability and rental value of the premises are affected, then Tenant shall promptly, within the first month of tenancy, give reasonable written notice to Landlord.  Preferred method is emailing a picture of deficiency w a brief description of location and issue.   Without said report, it will be assumed that unit is of acceptable condition. Tenant agrees to use reasonable care in protection and care of dwelling unit during occupancy and at end of the tenancy to surrender premises to Landlord in condition as good as when received, reasonable wear and tear is the exception.  Tenant agrees to maintain sidewalks/step free of ice and snow in winter and the yard mowed frequently in summer so that the grass is never more than 8 inches high per city ordinance. The Tenant will be charge city citation costs & fees for snow removal or mowing if the city levies the fees and all reasonable cost incurred in rectifying the violation per the timeframe as prescribed by the city ordinance.


14: ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING: Tenant shall not assign this rental Agreement, nor sublet the dwelling unit, or any portion thereof, without written consent of Landlord.


15.  OCCUPANTS: No persons except those specifically named on this Rental Agreement will be permitted to occupy the dwelling. Any additional occupant 18 years of age or older must also complete an Application for Tenancy and be approved by the Landlord.  If Tenant fails to inform Landlord of additional people occupying premises, the Landlord may terminate the lease. No occupants will be allowed or approved: whose occupancy will exceed the occupancy standards of the Landlord and/or any local, state, or federal codes or ordinances: who could pose a threat to other tenants, neighbors, or the landlord and/or his employees.  Unapproved occupants are trespassers.


16. DAMAGE-TO-PREMISES or REIMBURSEMENT: Whenever damage or pest infestation to premises is caused by the Tenant, his/her family, household member, visitor, guest, or agent, Tenant agrees to: repair or otherwise correct the damage at his/her expense and in a manner approved in writing by Landlord, and to do so within a reasonable time, OR to pay Landlord the reasonable cost of all repairs and replacements completed by the Landlord to restore premises to a decent, safe and sanitary condition, and to do so promptly after completion and billing for payment. Pests in general are the responsibility of the tenant, NOT the landlord. (Exceptions apply, see manager) Property has / has not had a pest inspection (circle one)  ___________________________________________


17. FIXTURES AND IMPROVEMENTS: Tenant shall leave upon, and surrender to Landlord, with the premises at the termination of this Rental Agreement, all locks, brackets for curtains, and all other fixtures attached to doors, windows or woodwork, and all alterations, additions or improvements made by Tenant, without any payment therefor, Tenant shall make no structural alterations without Landlord’s written consent.


18. FURNISHINGS: Tenant agrees to leave following furnished items in same condition at termination of occupancy as they are at beginning of occupancy:

19. FIRE OR CASUALTY DAMAGE: If the dwelling unit or premises are damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty to the extent that enjoyment of the dwelling unit is substantially impaired, Tenant may (i) immediately vacate the premises and notify Landlord within fourteen (14) days of Tenant’s intention to terminate this Rental Agreement, in which case this Rental Agreement shall terminate as of the date of vacating, or (ii) if continued occupancy is lawful, vacate only that part of the dwelling unit rendered un-useable by the fire or casualty, in which case, Tenant’s liability for rent shall be reduced in proportion to the diminution in the fair rental value of the dwelling unit. If this Rental Agreement is terminated under the provisions of this paragraph, Landlord shall return to tenant all prepaid rent and security recoverable under The Iowa Uniform Landlord and Tenant Act. Accounting for rent in the event of termination or apportionment shall occur as of the date of the casualty.


20. INSURANCE: Tenant understands that Landlord is not an insurer of the Tenant's person or possessions.  Landlord shall not be liable for personal injury or death of Tenant, his family or guests or damage or loss of any of the Tenant's personal property for any cause whatsoever. Landlord requires that tenant have renter's insurance if you have any of the following, or other high-risk issues as determined by the property owner.  If tenant has any waterbeds, pets, trampolines, swimming pools of any kind, or any other high-risk items, tenant must provide a copy of renter's insurance with special paragraph / endorsement / coverage towards any possible damage or injury caused by said listed objects.  Policy is to be made out with Landlord / property manager listed as an additional insured, with coverage specific to the liability in question. When you acquire renters insurance, it MUST state the following – “Lists as additional insured (owner’s name) and Pregler Properties,  c/o Pregler Properties, 3641 Kimball, Suite 104, Waterloo, IA 50702”  The reasoning for this is because any changes made to the policy will require your insurance carrier to notify us in writing of those changes.


21. KEYS: Tenant will be furnished with keys. Tenant agrees to pay for re-keying of the locks if anytime during tenancy the Tenant requests the locks to be changed or if all copies of keys are not returned at termination of tenancy.  If the lease is broken prematurely, the Tenant agrees to pay for the changing of the locks.


22.  MANAGEMENT: Tenant acknowledges that he\she has been informed that the people designated to act on behalf of Pregler Properties (name of business) are Mark & Kris Pregler (names). To report service or maintenance problems, Tenant should first call 888-508-6188 leaving a message that includes your name, your address and what the problem is.  “Please call me” will not get a response. To report rent payment issues or serve any legal processes, Tenant should call the same number with the same process.  MENTION MARTIN INC. REALTORS


23.  NOTICES: Service of any notice required under this Lease or Iowa Law shall be accomplished by: (1) personal hand delivery to the other party or to any adult occupant, (2) serving in the manner provided by law for the service of original notice, (3) sending Notice by certified mail to the last known address, (4) sending Notice prepaid first class postage to current or last known address of either party, (5) posting when allowed by law.


24.  PAINTING, ALTERATIONS, ADDITIONS: Tenant agrees not do any painting nor to make any alterations, changes, removals, or additions to the unit without prior written approval from the Landlord.  No nails, tape, gum-based adhesives, or fasteners other than bulldog hooks with small nails are to be used on the walls without Landlord's written approval.  Nothing should be used on the woodwork or doors.  If Tenant has large items to hang, contact Landlord for help or advice.


25.  PETS:  Pets are / are not allowed. (circle one) If allowed, an additional monthly rent payment of $10 per cat, $25 per dog is required. Pets must be licensed with the city annually. A copy of the license will be provided for the property manager from the tenant. No aggressive dog breeds allowed (Rottweiler, Pit Bull, Doberman, others at owners discretion). A picture of the animal must be emailed to the property manager. Proof of RENTERS INSURANCE with specific coverage for dog bite is required for any animal living on the property.  Listing owner as an additional insured and a copy EMAILED to us by your insurance agency.  No other form will be accepted.  Service / Companion Animals are not pets and require documentation from authorized prescriptions / agencies.  A kennel or travel cage is required for the animal to be kept in during visits and / or inspections.   Service animals / Companion animals must be properly registered and authorized paperwork be turned in BEFORE residency is established. ALL PAPERWORK MUST BE COMPLETE BEFORE KEYS WILL BE ISSUED.


26. Babysitting and Daycare: Babysitting for hire or having a Daycare business at the leased premises in not allowed.




I have read and understood everything on this page: _________________________________

27.  CERTIFICATION:  Tenant certifies that it is not acting, directly or indirectly, for or on behalf of any person, group, or entity or nation named by any Executive Order or the United States Treasury Department as a terrorist, “Special Designated National and Blocked Person” or any other banned or blocked person, entity, nation or transaction pursuant to any law, order, rule or regulation that is enforced or administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control; and it is not engaged in this transaction, directly or indirectly on behalf of, or instigating or facilitating this transaction, directly or indirectly on behalf of, any such person, group, entity or nation. Tenant hereby agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Landlord from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, risks, liabilities and expenses (including attorney’s fees and costs) arising from or related to any breach of the foregoing certification.


28. RESPONSIBILITY:  If more than one Tenant, each Tenant agrees to jointly and severally accept liability for all provisions of lease.  Each tenant is responsible for the payment of the full rent and damages incurred, not just a share of the rent or limited to only damages they personally incur.  Unapproved roommates are essentially trespassers.  


29. TERMINATION: In addition to the termination rights under this Rental Agreement, Landlord and Tenant may terminate this Rental Agreement as provided by the Iowa Uniform Landlord and Tenant Act or as otherwise provided by law.  If Tenant intends to vacate at end of lease, Tenant shall give Landlord thirty [30] days written notice prior to moving‑out and prior to expiration of lease.  Notice is due on or before 1st of month and Tenant must be moved out by end of month in which lease terminates.  Such notice shall be in writing and shall give a specific date {at least by last day of month} and time for moving out, and give forwarding address or other instructions for return of deposit.  Notice given on the 15th will be a 6-week notice. If this is a Section 8 lease, the notice periods are those required by Section 8. In the event less than required notice is given or if Tenant "holds‑over" past expiration of lease or past end of month, Tenant's account may be charged a pro-rated amount at the double the daily rate and eviction proceedings may begin.   After being completely moved‑out, Tenant will return all copies of all keys, and go through move‑out inspection with Landlord [for which tenant should have made prior arrangements so that inspection can be held prior to 5:00 p.m.], and provide written forwarding address.


30. RADON GAS DISCLOSURE: As required by law, Landlord makes the following disclosure: “Radon Gas” is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it is accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. Levels of radon that exceed federal and state guidelines have been found in buildings in Iowa. Additional information regarding radon and radon testing may be obtained from your county public health unit.



31. MOISTURE AND MOLD: Tenant acknowledges and agrees that Landlord will not be responsible for damages or losses due to mold growth to the extent such conditions have resulted from the acts or omissions of the Tenant, or if Tenant has failed to immediately notify landlord of any of the conditions that may cause mold growth. Because mold occurs naturally the Landlord cannot guarantee Tenant that the dwelling is, or will ever be, mold free. There is much a Tenant can and should do within the dwelling to reduce the possibility of mold:

Keep windows and doors closed during wet weather.
Maintain a general temperature of 68o to 73o F in the winter and 72o to 76o F in the summer.
Do not block or cover any heating/ventilating/air-conditioning diffusers, grills and/or thermostat with furniture, wall hangings, etc.
Keep the shower curtain inside the tub/shower unit. Wipe dry any damp floors, countertops, windows/sills, mirrors, etc. Leave bathroom door open after use or run exhaust fan (if applicable).
Remove wet clothes, towels and bedding from the basement/laundry area or living quarters of the home frequently. Maintain a clean home.
IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE MOLD, CONTACT US!   We can work with you on treating / eliminating mold, but only if you communicate with us!
As of this lease signing, there is / is not mold or excessive moisture in the rental unit. Circle one


32. LEAD PAINT HAZARD: If the dwelling unit was constructed before 1978, Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has delivered to Tenant copies of the form Disclosure of Information on Lead-Based Paint and/or Lead-Based Paint Hazards, and the Iowa Department of Public Health pamphlet How to Protect Iowa Families and/or the EPA pamphlet Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home.






I have read and understood everything on this page: _________________________________

33. CRIME FREE PROVISION:  This crime free provision of the lease is a necessary and crucial element in an effort to deter criminal activity in the community. The Tenant agrees as follows:

Tenant(s)/occupants/guests/invitees hereafter “Tenants” shall not engage in any criminal activity, on the leased premises.
Tenants shall not engage in any act that is intended to or actually facilitates any criminal activity, on the leased premises.
Tenants shall not permit the dwelling unit or leased premises to be used for any criminal activity.
Tenants shall not engage in any act of violence or threat of violence, including but not limited to, the unlawful display or discharge of a firearm, hate crime or any property damage on the leased premises.
Tenants agree and understand that management cooperates with law enforcement agencies by allowing management to release any information contained in management’s file regarding Tenants to any law enforcement agency upon request. Tenants agrees that management may use any police generated report as direct evidence without objection in any action, including but not limited to eviction.
Violation of this provision, or any single part of this provision, is a material and irreparable violation of the lease and good cause for immediate termination of tenancy. Proof of the violation shall not require criminal conviction but shall require only a preponderance of the evidence as designated by the Waterloo Police. Per City of Waterloo Nuisance Property Ordinance, Tenant that receives three police visits in a one-year period which is deemed a Nuisance Property by Police will receive a lease termination notice and will be required to move out in 30-days with forfeit of their deposit.
CALL THE POLIUCE, THEN EMAIL PREGLER PROPERTIES:  Pot smoking. Loud music / noise between 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM.  Anything else out of the ordinary or unusual that may be disturbing neighbors or other tenants.  You MUST call the police so it is a matter of public record.  Only then should you contact by, preferably by email.  Call if you must, but call 888-508-6188, NOT MY CEWLL P[HONE and leave a detailed message – WHO you are, the ADDRESS of the problem in question, and WHAT the problem is.  Do not call repeatedly.  LEAVE A DETAILED MESSAGE. 


34. COMPLIANCE WITH LAW; PARTIAL INVALIDITY:  Nothing contained in this Rental Agreement shall be construed as waiving any Landlord’s or Tenant’s rights under the law. In all respects, the terms and provisions of this Rental Agreement are to be construed to comply with all requirements of the Iowa Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (IURLTA) and all applicable laws. If any term of provision of this Rental Agreement is determined to be invalid pursuant to IURLTA or other law, such invalid term or provision shall be severed from the contract, and the remainder of the contract shall continue in full force and effect as though the invalid term or provision was not contained herein. If any part of this Rental Agreement shall be in conflict with the law, the conflicting part shall be invalid and unenforceable to the extent that it is in conflict, but shall not invalidate this Rental Agreement or affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of this Rental Agreement. Any term of this Rental Agreement that provides for any numerical amount that would be in conflict with a legal limitation amount shall be construed to be equal to the legal limitation amount.


35. COMMUNICATION:  PHONE CALLS: The only phone number to call is 888-508-6188.  It is understood that if the phone is answered, the conversation will be recorded. If the phone is not answered the tenant is to leave their name, address and explain what they need or maintenance issue.  A message of “please call me” may not be returned.  Explain yourself.  EMAIL is the preferred method of communication, and sending a picture along with the message for maintenance issues protects us both when the email is replied to.   When sending an email, DO NOT respond from another email!  START A NEW EMAIL!!  We file our emails and keep them.  But if you have an issue with your oven, but reply to an older email about a window…   How will we ever find this email if we need it?!    Start a NEW email, write the basic issue in the “subject” and communicate accordingly.


36. FURNACE, A/C, BREAKERS, MORE…   You are responsible for changing your furnace filters.  If you a/c is not working SHUT IT OFF and call me or log in a service call.  If a circuit breaker trips and you reset it and it trips again, DO NOT KEEP DOING THIS and call or log in a service call.  This is a fire hazard!  Unplug items and reset the breakers.  Did this work?  If yes, something you are using is bad, or you have too many things plugged in and being used at the same time!  A/C stop working?  Shut it off and call for help.  Running it when it isn’t blowing cold air can ruin parts!


37.  SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUND:  How do you want it divided?  One check to one person? Multiple checks?  Evenly amongst the tenants?  Explain:  __________________________________________________________


38. RENTERS INSURANCE: Owner / property manager listed as an additional insured. Swimming pool, trampoline, dogs…



I have read and understood everything on this page: _________________________________

39.  MOVE-OUT INSPECTIONS:  We do NOT escort tenants in a move-out inspection.


40. BASEMENT:  No egress window means no legal bedroom.


41.  VENDORS:  You are NOT to contact any of our vendors unless you want to pay for something.  All maintenance requests and any other issues MUST be communicated with the property manager ONLY.


42.  NEIGHBORHOODS:  We cannot guarantee your safety no matter where you live.


43.  MAINTENANCE / INSPECTIONS:  If your presence is required for maintenance or inspections, OR if you ask for help but aren’t there to let maintenance personnel in when you say you will be OR you fail to appear when you say you will be there, especially if any of these are at YOUR request, OR if your presence is needed because of pets / animals, YOU WILL PAY for that service call, even if nothing gets done.  Maintenance people / companies charge whether you are they or not.  Whether they make a repair or not.  If we agree that you will let them in or be there for them but you are not, YOU will find the bill added to your ledger.  IN THE EVENT THAT MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL HAVE KEYS, your presence is not required and they will be allowed access to do the job, as long as proper notice has been given to the tenant and understanding of the maintenance visit is documented.    CONTACTING MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL:  You are to call 888-508-6188 ONLY, unless you are willing to pay for the work to be done.  If you call any of our maintenance people, it will become YOUR expense (unless returning a call to schedule).  You MUST contact Pregler Properties.  Yes, you will probably have to leave a message.  We will contact you back as soon as we are able.  This does not mean you can’t fix things yourself.  In fact, you are responsible for cleaning and maintaining your rental unit. 




45. TRANSPARANCY:  We make every attempt to communicate with all parties – tenant, owner, manager – as often as possible.  It is very important that you use 888-508-6188 for all communications, unless otherwise emailed or texted from 0our property management software, which may have an odd phone number or email address. We will share this information with you upon completion of the lease signing.

This Agreement is part of the Rental Agreement (the “Lease”) between the undersigned parties with reference to the property.


In consideration of the execution or renewal of the Lease, the parties agree as follows:


1.   Tenant, any members of Tenant’s household, or a guest or other person under Tenant’s control shall not engage in criminal activity, including drug-related criminal activity, on or near the rental premises.


2.   “Criminal activity” means acts of violence or threats of violence, including but not limited to the unlawful discharge of firearms, prostitution, gambling, criminal street gang activity, intimidation, assault, or other criminal activity on or within 250 feet of the rental premises that jeopardizes the health, safety or welfare of the landlord, its agents, tenants or others. “Drug-related criminal activity” means the illegal manufacture, sale, distribution, purchase, use or possession with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute, or use a controlled substance as defined under local, Iowa or federal law, or the possession of drug paraphernalia.


3.   Tenant, any member of Tenant’s household, or a guest or other person under Tenant’s control shall not engage in any act intended to facilitate criminal activity, including drug-related criminal activity, on or near the rental premises.


4.   Tenant, any members of Tenant’s household, or a guest or other person under Tenant’s control, will not permit the rental premises to be used for or to facilitate criminal activity, including drug-related criminal activity, regardless of whether such activity is done by a member of the household or a guest.


5.   Tenant or members of the household will not engage in the manufacture, sale or distribution of criminal drugs at any locations, whether on or near the rental premises or otherwise.


6.   VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE PROVISIONS SHALL BE A MATERIAL VIOLATION OF THE LEASE AND GOOD CAUSE FOR TERMINATION OF TENANCY. A single violation of any of the provisions of this Addendum shall be deemed a material non-compliance with the Lease. However, city code granting housing protection to victims of domestic violence shall have precedence over this Addendum to the extent applicable.


Tenants agree that a single violation shall be good cause for termination of the Lease.  Unless otherwise provided by law, proof of violation shall not require criminal conviction, but shall be by preponderance of the evidence.


7.   In case of conflict between the provisions of this Addendum and any other provisions of the Lease, the provisions of this Addendum shall govern. The provisions of this Addendum are in addition to all other terms of the lease and are not intended to limit or replace other provisions or remedies.

VAWA Protections

The Landlord may not consider incidents of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking as serious or repeated violations of the lease or other “good cause” for termination of assistance, tenancy or occupancy rights of the victim of abuse.
The Landlord may not consider criminal activity directly relating to abuse, engaged in by a member of a tenant’s household or any guest or other person under the tenant’s control, cause for termination of assistance, tenancy, or occupancy rights if the tenant or an immediate member of the tenant’s family is the victim or threatened victim of that abuse.
The Landlord may request in writing that the victim, or a family member on the victim’s behalf, certify that the individual is a victim of abuse and that the Certification of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence or Stalking, Form HUD-91066, or other documentation as noted on the certification form, be completed and submitted within 14 business days, or an agreed upon extension date, to receive protection under the VAWA. Failure to provide the certification or other supporting documentation within the specified timeframe may result in eviction.
