Target: 5 to 8 hours

The Following are **NOT** Emergencies

Refrigerator out, locking yourself out of the house, power or gas off, oven not working, water heater out, air conditioning not working. These issues may be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and aggravating, but they are not emergencies. Farish Realty Property Management is not liable for loss of food caused by appliance break down or for damaged belongings due to water leaks. Please make sure that you have adequate renter’s insurance to cover unforeseen personal losses.

Urgent Maintenance

Broken windows, plumbing repairs (not clogged toilet), loose railings, wobbly decks, electrical problems, HVAC repairs.

Note: during peak seasonal months, target response times for heat and air may be subject to delays due to contractor overload.

Normal Maintenance

Appliance repair, garage repairs, leaky faucets.

Target: 4-8 business day service

Non-Essential Maintenance

Fence repair, gutter cleaning.

Target: 30 day service

Not a Habitability Issue

Screens; broken lattice; power washing; broken window shade; broken tree limb; missing door stopper; missing/broken door knob; all light bulbs including stove, chandelier, and refrigerator; and fireplace gas keys. Most of these items are covered by the Tenant through the Minor Repairs Addendum. Feel free to call or ask us for details if you are unsure of what is covered.

Target: Point these items out during next property visit or bring up at lease renewal time. These items may not be approved for repair by the owner.

Tenant Damages

Damage caused by abuse or misuse will be charged back to you. We will rely on the servicing contractor to tell us what caused the problem.

If plumbing gets clogged due to items dropped in the toilet (toys, brushes, diapers, napkins, any personal items), the cost of the plumber will be your responsibility (minimum $150). This is not considered equipment failure and you should do everything you can to handle these issues by yourself. Buy a plunger. Unless the contractor can prove it was not caused by you (i.e. roots in system, pipe collapsed, septic tank backup), we assume it was caused by people, not by a defect of the property. Clogged plumbing is your responsibility.
