Do You Trust The Repair Folks?

There are intercity horror stories of apartments that are dilapidated. These have rusted pipes, overflowing toilets, and harmful mold everywhere. You would hope that something like this is not seen in apartments in San Diego, but they can happen. A major problem arises when a landlord s tries to cut corners by saving money on repair work. It is a penny-wise and pound-foolish logic. Slumlords will often have tenants do the repair work in return for lower rent. Other property owners will have a posse of folks to fix things, none of whom are skilled laborers. The risk is obvious for the tenant but is greater for the landlord. These inexperienced and unskilled people do not always follow building codes in repair work.
There is a Risk of Poor Service
They will slap something together instead, and the landlord accepts the risk. It could happen that housing inspectors will condemn a building and issue serious penalties and fines on the landlords. A landlord in San Diego should be careful. Anyone who works on repairs must be reliable, follow building codes, and not do cheap quality work. Not every property management company in San Diego uses the best possible help. Alta Vista Properties has a reputation for ethics and quality. We will sacrifice neither when it comes to fixing an apartment or house owned by a client.
We respect tenants, but we do not believe they have the expertise to handle a power outage. We rely, instead, on professionals with whom we have done business over the years. These are people we trust because of past performance. Any relationship established was built on good work. We hold these contractors to high standards and will settle for nothing less. We expect them to be transparent; there should be no hidden costs in any work performed. We insist on this because we want our clients to only pay for work performed.
Quick Response is Essential
Good property management companies in San Diego understand the significance of quick response. When a tenant calls in an emergency repair, this should be dealt with as soon as possible. The tenant has a right to expect quick service. After all, apartment rent in San Diego is not cheap. A stopped-up toilet, or air-conditioning unit that is failing is not acceptable. Alta Vista Properties moves rapidly to correct the problems.
We have an online maintenance request form. Any resident who has trouble with the utilities or plumbing can fill out that request and expect quick service. An important thing to note is that we asked permission to enter the apartment. Even though our client owns the space, we respect those who live in it. We work with the tenants to bring a resolution to an emergency. Those contractors with whom we work are expected to be polite to anyone. We settle for nothing less.
Alta Vista Properties is always on the alert for any damage to a client’s property. We will inspect the premises before and after a tenant leaves. We fix any problems before a new resident moves in. We will from time to time inspect the property just to be sure there is nothing wrong. Most tenants have no problem because it allows us to spot emergencies before they happen.
Repair work is one of the many services Alta Vista Properties provides for clients. We are committed to maintaining the value of the investment made in the apartments or houses. We encourage prospective clients to check our references and ask around about us. Please do inquire at any time about our property management services.
