Do Property Managers Pay for Repairs?

Did you know that over 61% of rental property owners consider maintenance and repairs the most stressful part of managing a property?

It's all too easy for maintenance and repair tasks to become overwhelming and start affecting the value of your property, so it's best not to try to do it all yourself. Property managers can effectively oversee your day-to-day maintenance and repair tasks, making your life much easier.

Keep reading this guide to learn how property managers can care for your maintenance and repair needs.

Property Management Services

Property management companies will take care of repair requests from the tenants on your property. Depending on your property management agreement, you'll set up a fund to pay for repairs that come up, or it will come from your monthly rental income. 

Some property management companies have software that allows you to pay vendors directly online and review invoices.

Either way, any maintenance or repair issues are taken care of quickly, and you'll have more time to focus on other aspects of your business.

You can expect maintenance and repair services like:

Maintenance Services

First, you'll receive preventative maintenance property services that will keep your property in good condition. They'll also reduce the risk of tenant complaints and legal issues resulting from unfixed maintenance problems.

A property management company will keep track of upcoming maintenance tasks and ensure they're done on time. They'll schedule maintenance tasks and take care of things like:

  • Painting
  • Landscaping
  • Cleaning gutters
  • Replacing light bulbs
  • Replacing air filters
  • Testing carbon monoxide and smoke detectors

Repair Services

Finding dependable repair contractors isn't always an easy task. The great thing about experienced property management companies is that they do this for you. 

Some property management companies have their own maintenance staff that can handle quick repairs that come up. Otherwise, they have a contact list of reliable contractors they've used in the past.

You'll also be able to let them know if you have a preferred contractor you've previously worked with. 

In addition, property management companies have an online portal that will allow your tenants to put in repair requests quickly and efficiently. A minor issue won't be left to evolve into an expensive problem. 

You can depend on a property management company to quickly address and fix issues such as:

  • Water leaks
  • Plumbing issues like a broken toilet
  • Troubles with AC or heat
  • Roof leaks

Emergency Services

Floods, fires, major leaks, broken gas lines, or loss of electricity to your property will often leave your tenants in a panic.

Property management companies will take care of any emergency repair situations that might occur. They'll coordinate repairs, ensure damages are taken care of and assist your tenants with anything they need.
