Notes
  1. Deposit for power-based on credit score. Directions: take Hwy 29 toward Gaffney. When you see Stouffer's Foods (Nestle), turn directly across the highway. Broad River Electric will be on your left.
  2. If the power is off more than seven days before you move into the home, you must contact building codes to have an inspection done before you can have the power turned on. The cost is $15.00 and is payable to Cherokee County Building Codes.
  3. Deposit for water is $50.00. B & W Housing is the collection agent for water bills within our subdivision. You pay the deposit to B & W and the water bills arrive in our office &mdash usually by the 5th of every month. The bills are due on the 15th of each month and past due on teh 20th. The water service is subject to disconnection if unpaid by the 20th. If your water bill exceeds your deposit and your payment is not received on time, your water service will then be turned over to Goucher Water Company to collect.
  4. B & W Housing Development is not responsible for the installation of telephone jacks in the homes in our development. Most of the homes have jacks, but if they do not or you would like jacks in rooms other than the ones there when you moved in, you must pay for installation.
  5. Most of the homes in our community have already been wired for cable. If your home has not had cable run, the cable company must install the cable up through the floor of the home. No cable of any type is to be run through the outside wall of the home. If this is done, you will be financially responsible for fixing the damage.

Other Helpful Information

Trash Disposal—Dumpsters are located behind the white home located at 581 Oakdale Road. Only household trash may be deposited in these dumpsters. Do not put any appliances, metal objects, tires, or wood into these dumpsters. All items of this nature must be taken to the Cherokee Country Landfill. There are recording devices that record all actions at the dumpsters. Anyone violating the rules will have the tape turned over to the Cherokee County trash collection violation staff.

Animal Control—Any animal running loose in our neighborhood is a violation of the owner's lease. All animals must be chained or fenced according to Cherokee County law. If you experience problems with an animal running loose, please contact animal control officers at (864) 487-8529.

Mail Delivery—Mail is delivered Monday through Saturday. Oak Court, Warlick Road, Bambi Trail, Whitetail Way, Emile Lane, and Deer Creek Court have sets of mailboxes at the entrance to the roads. Persons living on Oakdale Road and Acorn Drive must provide their own mailboxes.

Heating and Cooling Systems—All heating and cooling systems are inspected and cleaned before any resident moves into a home in our community. If you are on a one year lease and you have problems with your system, pleae call the office immediately. We will contact a service person immediately. Please keep in mind that we have no control over the schedule of an outside contractor, but your problem will be dealt with as soon as possible. If you are renting to own, you are responsible for all maintenance issues that arise. You may call any heating and air company you wish.

Smoke Detectors—We furnish each home with smoke detectors. You are responsible for changing the batteries in your smoke detectors as needed. When the batteries get low, the detector usually emits a chirping sound.
