Maintenance Requests

Maintaining your home is a team effort!

At our properties, we strive to ensure your home is comfortable and well-maintained. To clarify maintenance responsibilities, here's a breakdown of what we take care of and what falls under the residents' care:

We encourage residents to report any maintenance issues as soon as they arise. Early reporting can prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. For any maintenance requests that fall under our responsibilities, please submit a request through the resident portal or contact our maintenance team directly. We provide resources and guidance for handling the residents’ maintenance responsibilities. If you’re unsure how to address a minor issue, please reach out for advice.

Our goal is to maintain the quality and comfort of your home while balancing responsibilities. By understanding and adhering to these guidelines, we can ensure a pleasant living environment for all our residents.
