The Pools are now OPEN!
We are happy to announce that the pools have been inspected and are open for swimming. We are excited that pool season is here and everyone can now enjoy them.
Please remember that there are pool rules posted at each pool and we ask that you take time to read them and abide by them.
Some, but not all rules are:
- No pets allowed inside the pool or the pool deck areas.
- No more than 2 guests at a time allowed per apartment.
- ABSOLUTELY NO glass containers of any kind allowed in the pool areas.
- No horseplay or rough housing allowed or throwing items in the pool.
- No one allowed inside the pool areas before 10:00 a.m. and after 10:00 p.m.
Please let us know if you have any questions about any of the Pool Rules.

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.
Our office will be closed on May 26th in recognition of Memorial Day.
We hope you all have a good holiday!
Your Abberly Place Team would like to wish all of the Abberly Place Mom’s a very Happy Mother’s Day!
Trash vs. Recycling
We wanted to include an article this month about the trash and recycling areas. It appears that some residents may be confused and not know where to put their trash. The green dumpsters, which are for recycling only, are constantly overflowing with trash. This area is not meant for trash, it is there for recycling only.
The trash compactor is actually right beside the green dumpsters enclosed within the brick walls. We have arranged for Waste Industries to come out 3 times a week to help control this situation. If you have any questions or concerns then please contact our office at 919-772-6545.
Patios and Decks
For those of you who do have an outside living area such as a patio or deck, you are responsible for keeping that clean and uncluttered. If you need to clean your patio area, please do so with a damp cloth or sponge and avoid dumping large amounts of water that runs down to the patio or deck below.
Outside areas are not to be used as storage for things other than “normal” patio items such as furniture, flower pots and decorative items. You need to also avoid putting several things out in the grass/yard areas, because this makes it difficult for out landscapers to do their job.
If you store a grill on the patio, you must have the gas tank disconnected at all times and you are not allowed by law to use the grill within 10 feet of any building structure. Thank you all for keeping your areas tidy.
Water Bill Payments
As you all know, your water bill comes from YES Energy Management and is billed monthly. You should send your payment directly to YES or you can go to their website and pay online. That website is www.yesnavitas.com.
If you get behind on your water bills, and become 60 days delinquent, your payment can be made payable to Abberly Place for the complete amount owed.
Please note that if your account does become 60 days delinquent, all Abberly Place amenities will be restricted including the pools and RAC. Please feel free to call our office if you have any questions about your water bill.

Animals and Caged Pets
We have received a few complaints about “caged animals” being on the patio. If you have an animal that stays in a cage (rabbit, hamster, gerbil, ect.) they do not need to be on the patio, they need to stay inside your apartment home.
Shavings from the cage could fall onto the patio underneath yours, so this is why we are asking you keep them inside. Also, if you are a pet owner and let your dog/cat on your patio, please make sure that you are on the patio to supervise them.
If they are left on the patio for long periods of time without supervision, they could begin to bark or even have an accident on the patio and we need to avoid this situation all together. Thank you for your cooperation.
As many of you may already know, we have had our fair share of construction projects happening at Abberly Place over the past few weeks. There have been modifications made to first floor apartments, changes made to the parking lots, painting, and several other things. We really appreciate your patience during this process and we wanted to send you all a big THANK YOU! Everything should be back to normal within the next few weeks.
Rent vs. Buying
The American dream is shifting from “for sale” to a “for rent” mindset as multi-family living increases in popularity due to choice and NOT economic necessity. The incentives are Unlimited! Here are just a few:
Short Term commitment - leases are typically 9-15 months and you have the option to leave before the expiration date in exchange for a fee or re-renting the apartment.
Flexibility –your needs or job can change. You are able to relocate much more quickly!
Social Activities are planned for you and your family!
Amenities improve your quality of life and save unnecessary membership fees elsewhere (pools, fitness facility, business center, etc. )
