Emergencies don’t abide by schedules. When a pipe bursts in the dead of night or a power outage strikes on a weekend, tenants need swift, efficient assistance. For a professional rental agency, ensuring tenant safety and satisfaction during emergencies is paramount.

Maintenance Emergencies: 

As a property management company, it is crucial to understand what situations constitute emergency maintenance in rental properties. Here is a comprehensive list of maintenance concerns that are considered emergencies: 

  • Broken water lines: Any significant water leak or pipe burst that can cause severe water damage or flooding. 
  • Flooding: Excessive water entering the property from a storm or pipe break.
  • Fires: Indication of a fire, such as smoke, flames, or strong smell.
  • Gas Leaks: The presence of gas odor or if you suspect there is a leak.
  • Structural Damage: Any damage to the building’s structure that compromises safety, for example, a collapsed structure. 
  • Pest Infestation: An infestation that could be damaging to the tenant or the property.
  • Electrical Issues: Power outages, sparks, or exposed wire that can be hazardous.

Management Protocol: 

Professional rental agencies such as CREC Property Management have well-defined emergency protocols in place. These protocols outline procedures for different types of emergencies. Clear guidelines ensure that staff members know exactly how to react, whom to contact, and what steps to take to mitigate the situation. Regular training sessions reinforce these protocols, enabling our staff to handle crises with confidence and competence.
