Rules & Regulations

  • A renter who says no alcohol will be served and pays the lower damage deposit forfeits the entire deposit if an inspection proves that liquor has been served.
  • When signing the rental contract, renters must affirm that they are at least 21 years of age and acknowledge that they are responsible for any damage caused by themselves or their guests.
  • Before their event occurs, renters who plan to serve alcohol must show the rental coordinator a copy of the liquor permit (available at most liquor stores) as well as proof of third-party liability insurance with the community league as a named insured.

 

Insurance – Third Party Liability

Proof of insurance is required if liquor is being served.

Third party liability insurance is also necessary is it protects both the host and the league in case accident or injury leads to a claim or lawsuit.

If you have homeowner insurance, your insurer may provide third-party liability insurance at a reasonable cost. Failing that, you can purchase coverage through Foster Park Baskett, the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues’ recommended insurer.

 

Security

Keyless entry systems have been installed on exterior and interior doors within the lounge building. Renters and program providers are given codes only to the main door and to the room they will be using.
