how to report maintenance
Noticed a leaking tap or a problem with the air conditioner at your property? No matter what the issue may be, at some point in your tenancy it’s likely that you’ll need to report a maintenance problem. Here’s the best way to do it for a quick and easy solution.
routine (general) repairs
The quickest and easiest way to report any routine repairs is via your tenant portal. All you need to do is follow these 4 simple steps:
Log in to your tenant portal here.
Click the ‘New Maintenance’ button.
Enter all of the required details. Remember to try and be as thorough as you can here and provide multiple photos if possible; the more detail you provide to us, the faster we can have it fixed for you.
Submit your request.
After you submit your request, you’ll be contacted by our agency or the required tradesperson to gain access to your property. You’re also able to track the entire process from start to finish via your tenant portal, including when our agency assigns the job and who it is assigned to. Wondering what is happening with the maintenance you reported days ago is a thing of the past.
If you have a maintenance issue that needs urgent attention, we recommend calling our office on 07 3053 9050 or 0448 792 055 before reporting the issue via your tenant portal. That way, your notification is still in writing and we can then label your report as an emergency and contact the owner immediately.
If, for any reason, you are unable to get in touch with someone from our office straight away, you may also contact the nominated emergency contractor listed on your lease agreement and arrange for them to carry out the repair to a maximum value of 2 weeks rent.
