Tenants can raise an online request to report on incidents & repairs relating to the rental property at any time. Property owners can choose to be the first point of call or assign this to Appease.
The procedures for urgent and non-urgent repairs are different. Under our per request service, we can arrange & monitor repairs & maintenance to your rental property according to your instructions. For urgent repairs, where action must be taken immediately, we will take all reasonable steps to contact you but if we are unable to, we will arrange the necessary repairs.
In the case of non-urgent maintenance, we can either refer to you before taking action or can organise maintenance on your behalf up to an agreed cost. If you have preferred tradespeople, we will record their details and contact them when required.
Tenants themselves have the authority under the regulatory requirements to organise urgent repairs up to $1800.00 (depending on the state or territory). This information can be posted on the tenant's own portal for the rental property & where available, with details of the preferred tradespeople for the type of urgent repairs. Appease can provide such instructions if we are the designated first point of call for repairs
