What is a Tenant Repair Request?

If you're a renter who needs repairs done, filing a Tenant Repair Request with the landlord can help you get your rental back in order. If you're a landlord, you may want to make life easier for your tenants, or want to dissuade them from making their own repairs on critical building functions. Either way, having a Tenant Repair Request available helps get things fixed quickly and properly. 
As a tenant, you have rights, and one of the biggest perks of renting is that you don't have to deal with certain repairs. And when you do need repairs, giving your landlord a Tenant Repair Request can help you get things fixed. Aside from simply starting the process, a written request helps you document everything. Details can be forgotten, but having a physical document can help ensure nothing is left out. If you're the landlord, providing Tenant Repair Requests can help you stay in control of your property. If a tenant needs to rewire their apartment, or fix a sewer line, chances are you don't want them to do that themselves - nor do you want them to hire just anybody. It can be tough to keep track of all the details when it comes to making a repair; but a Tenant Repair Request can help you stay on top of it.

When to use a Tenant Repair Request:

  • You're a landlord and want to make repair requests easy for tenants.
  • You're a tenant who needs something repaired.
  • You work for a property management company.
