A. Member Responsibility: Members are expected to act responsibly and cooperatively when attempting to solve problems of residence habitability or other problems which may arise in the course of membership. In particular, it is expected that solutions shall first be sought at the individual level, in consultation with the unit management. Then, if necessary, solutions shall be sought at Central level (i.e. the Operations Manager, Central Maintenance, etc.), and finally at the Administrative Committee and the Board of Directors.
B. House Responsibility: Houses are expected to make every reasonable effort to maintain the standards outlined in the Habitability Code.
C. Central Level Responsibility: Central Level maintenance and management are expected to realize the import of habitability and to give appropriate priority to problems referred to them from the houses.
D. Administrative Committee Responsibility: If the Administrative Committee notices a significant number of cases arising from violations of the Habitability Guidelines, it shall refer the matter to the Maintenance Committee.
E. AdCom will not consider appeals based on habitability unless all other courses of action as outlined in XXI.A have been pursued.
