Not only does it contribute to your comfort and safety, but it also helps preserve the property’s value. Check out the rest of this blog to learn how you can submit the most effective maintenance requests.

Why Effective Reporting Matters:

Reporting maintenance issues effectively is not just about getting things fixed; it’s about streamlining the process for you. When maintenance requests are communicated clearly and promptly, it helps our team prioritize tasks efficiently, thereby reducing response times and minimizing inconvenience for tenants.

Tips for Reporting Maintenance Issues:

  1. Be Specific: When reporting an issue, provide as much detail as possible. Include the location of the problem, a description of the issue, and if applicable, any troubleshooting steps you’ve already taken. You are also able to submit photos of your issue through your online portal. Specificity helps our maintenance team understand the problem accurately and address it more effectively.
  2. Use Your Online Resident Portal: Our company offers an online portal or in-person written documentation when it comes to reporting a maintenance request. Choose the method that works for you, but don’t hesitate to email us at with any questions.
  3. Follow Up: If you haven’t received a response within a reasonable timeframe, don’t hesitate to follow up. Politely inquire about the status of your request and express any concerns regarding the urgency of the issue.
  4. Emergency vs. Non-Emergency: Understand the difference between emergency and non-emergency maintenance issues. Emergencies, such as gas leaks or flooding, require immediate attention and should be reported by phone for the fastest response. Non-emergency issues can typically be reported through other channels.
  5. Document Everything: Keep a record of all communication regarding maintenance issues, including dates, times, and the nature of the problem. This documentation can be valuable if there are any disputes or discrepancies later on.

Effective communication is key to ensuring that maintenance requests are addressed promptly and efficiently at your property. By following these tips for reporting maintenance issues, you can help streamline the process. This helps both yourself and our property management team, ultimately contributing to a better renting experience for everyone involved.
