Examples of Maintenance Emergencies

If you experience one of the following, just call the office phone number and follow the prompts for emergency maintenance assistance. Your message will be delivered to our On-Call team member

Any major electrical problem or power outage. Please check your breaker box to see if something has tripped.

No power to your refrigerator.

Any water leaks that cannot be contained in a bucket until the next business morning or any water leak that may be causing structural damage.

Any major sewer back-ups or non-working toilet in a home having only one bathroom. Tenants with multiple bathrooms should use the working toilets until a plumber can be scheduled to come out. Secondary damage caused by continuing to use a toilet that was reported as malfunctioning could be charged to the tenant.

No air-conditioning when outside temperature is over 80 degrees. No heat when outside temperature is under 50 degrees. Please note that work cannot be performed on air conditioners in rain, lightning or at night. Please check the red emergency switch if present at the home to determine if someone has shut it off. This will cause the heat/AC to cease functioning.

Lock outs are NOT considered an Emergency. Tenant (leaseholders with ID) can be provided with a key during business hours, just call the office and we will arrange pick up along with a $50 deposit.
