There undoubtedly penalties to simply GOING to any so-called 'off-limit' areas in an apartment complex. Having a PARTY in any off-limit area is likely grounds for high fines, or even lease termination!

Hannah,

The penalty for having a party on an off-limit area might be grounds for a penalty such as early termination of rental agreement or any number of things.

You need to review your lease agreement and/or speak to an attorney.

Why would Realtors know? Off-limit seems to imply it's OFF-LIMIT.

Hannah,

Yeow......."off limit" would likely be the key phrase here....What's your guess?

Are you thinking, "well how could they penalize me?" I wouldn't go there!

Hannah,

Your best bet is to consult an attorney. I would think if anything were to happen on the roof you would be criminally liable, since you knew the roof was off-limits. However, I am not an attorney or a law enforcement officer.

My advice would be to heed the restriction and stay off the roof.

Yes....get ready for cemetery. Do you have spot already purchased? No penalty.

Hannah,

Penalty of not, the word "off-limit" should be a no brainer. "STAY OFF THE ROOF!" That would ensure you will get no penalties and the neighbors living immediately below the roof will love you for it. Duh!
