Repairs & Maintenance

When you notice a maintenance issue, it is important that you inform our office as soon as possible (in writing).

This can be done using the maintenance request form and can be issued via email, fax or mail. Jobs requiring attention by tradespeople firstly require permission from the landlord.

Once the Landlord's approval has been obtained, a work order is forwarded directly to the specific tradesperson, who will then be in direct contact with you to arrange a convenient time to address the approved maintenance.

Please be aware that works carried out on the property by any person not approved under a work order from a BCRE Property Management office may result in your liability to pay the account.
