What it Means to Have Free Apartment Maintenance

Apartment Maintenance

There is a certain peace of mind that comes with renting an apartment.

Many tenants don’t have to worry about dealing with annoying repairs or building upkeep that many property owners face. Instead, these responsibilities tend to fall on the shoulders of apartment management.

What Maintenance is Included?

When leasing an apartment, there may not be an additional maintenance fee; however, a portion of your monthly rent goes to fund these supportive services.

Apartment maintenance is crucial for ensuring that a property stays in good condition, making it livable, comfortable, and presentable for both residents and prospective tenants.

There’s a wide range of services that fall under apartment maintenance. Generally, apartment maintenance includes plumbing, HVAC, appliance repair, security, groundskeeping, and pest control.

Additional amenities offered at properties can call for more maintenance. For example, if an apartment offers a gym or pool, then property management is automatically responsible for keeping these spaces up to par.

While property management regularly keeps up with the maintenance of the exterior and common space of the building, it is generally the tenant’s responsibility to communicate if their unit needs service.

Things you Should Know Before Signing

Before signing on the dotted line and locking in your lease, be sure to first speak with your property manager and broker to confirm what services are included in your apartment maintenance. 

Often, minimal fixes such as burnt out light bulbs or cosmetic changes fall under the tenant’s responsibility.

Also, keep in mind that some minimal repairs, such as a scratch on the door or stain on the carpet, may not be considered a maintenance issue, but instead damages to the unit. Depending on your lease agreement, these types of damages may result in a fine at the end of the lease if not resolved.
