Maintenance Issue: Routine or Emergency?

06/19/2014

Oh-Oh” moments happen— and not just between 8:00 and 5:00.

For the safety and convenience of our residents, we offer a 24 hours emergency maintenance service (in addition to our exceptional routine maintenance services).

If you are calling during business hours, please contact the Rental Office. All after-hours emergencies should be directed to the appropriate number for your property. To allow us to provide you with the best possible service, please follow the guidelines:

 Routine Requests:

Routine requests should be called into the office during business hours. You can also make requests on our website, tenant portal or via email.

Leave a message, including a brief description of the problem, your phone number and your apartment address, and we will complete your request as soon as possible.

 Emergency Requests: Our after hours service is for emergencies only.

What we do classify as an emergency service:

          - Water leaking into your apartment

          – Heat below 64 degrees during the winter

          – Smell of gas in your apartment

          – Main sewer line back up in which water is coming up into your   sink/bathtub/toilet

          – Loss of electricity beyond fuse or circuit breaker

          – Warm refrigerators (on weekends)

What we do not classify as emergency service:

          – A small plumbing leak (please try placing a pan or bucket underneath the leak)

          – A plugged sink

          – Appliance repair (other than warm refrigerator on weekends)

          – Blown fuse or light bulb (you are responsible for replacing these yourself)

          – Plugged toilet which can be unplugged with a plunger. We strongly suggest having a plunger to unplug toilets and sinks.
