Miscellaneous Questions

I'm having a cable installation with Comcast- what's the process for that?

In most buildings, the main cable box is found in a locked room. If you need access to a locked room for the purposes of a cable installation, you need to notify Thayer and Associates at least 48 hours in advance of any cable installation, so that a maintenance manager can be on-site with the correct combinations and keys to let the cable technician into the builder telecommunications closet.
If you don't notify the property manager, then it is unlikely that the maintenance staff will be able to assist the technician, and you will have to re-schedule your installation.

What is the pet policy at my association?

Your association pet policy is available in the owner's manual. If you don't have an owner's manual, you can request one from your property manager.

I want to rent or buy a unit at one of the association's Thayer manages.

Unfortunately, Thayer doesn't directly handle the rental or sale of units at any of the associations we manage. You should consult a local real estate agent.
