When to use Tenant Maintenance Request
One of the major benefits associated with renting a residential or commercial property is that the responsibility of most routine maintenance falls on the landlord or property manager, not on you. Certainly, there are repairs that you are responsible for, namely repairs related to possessions that are not considered part of the property. For example, if you have a microwave that you purchased personally and have every right to take with you when you move, it will be your responsibility to repair it if it breaks. However, if the microwave is built-in, is a feature of the property and is not yours to take with you when you move, your landlord or property manager is responsible for fixing it if it breaks. However, landlords and property managers are not mind readers. If something has broken on your rental property or is in need of maintenance, you will need to communicate that need to your landlord or property manager. This form can help you do so efficiently and effectively.
If you need to submit a repair or maintenance request to your landlord or property manager, you can use this customizable form to do just that. Similarly, if you are a landlord or property manager and you want to provide your tenants with an easy, straightforward and effective way to communicate their maintenance and repair needs, you can provide them with copies of this form to use as necessary. It is important to keep copies of every maintenance or repair request you either make or receive so that you can easily reference it as proof of your efforts and of the state of the property in question.
