Make Maintenance Request
Basic Maintenance Troubleshooting
All maintenance requests are required to be reported in writing with the exception of emergency repairs.
Please submit your request clicking on the link above or you can send it to us by regular mail, email to
firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax to 678-804-2443. Include your cell, work, and home phone numbers so our repair
company can reach you to schedule the repair. Please be specific about the problem, i.e. model numbers for
appliances, which bathroom has the problem, etc.
Our goal is to complete non-emergency repairs within 10 days of request, however,
there may be delays due to ordering parts or contractor scheduling.
Please call the office if you are not notified by a repair company within 48 hours of your work request,
not including weekends and Holidays. Contractors will not make repairs to a home where minors are present
without an adult also present. Please remember that if you have pets, they need to be secured before a
vendor enters the home to make repairs. Please be reminded not to hire contractors or do repairs on
your own as you could be held responsible for the bill. All repairs must be completed by licensed and
insured contractors and authorized by management.
Dishwasher won’t drain:
Clean food out of bottom of dishwasher. Run the
garbage disposal to make sure it isn’t clogged.
Garage door won’t open/close:
If it is through the remote, change the batteries in the remote.
Check the sensors to make sure they are free of obstructions. If
it still will not work and the door is open, pull the emergency
cord hanging from the overhead unit (usually the cord is red) to
be able to manually close the door before notifying management.
Garbage disposal doesn’t work:
DO NOT PUT YOUR HAND IN THE DISPOSAL.
When the disposal is on, do you hear a buzz? If
you do not hear a buzz, switch the disposal off,
hit the reset button on the bottom of the disposal,
and then test. If you do hear a buzz, turn off disposal
and unplug from wall before checking for items stuck
in the disposal.
Hot water too hot:
Check thermostat on tank and turn down. Also, you can adjust the
hot water valve under the sinks if it’s just one area that the
water is too hot.
No air conditioning:
Check thermostat. Check that the filter has been replaced within the
last 3 months. Check the breaker box to make sure the breaker has not been tripped.
Check thermostat on tank for proper temperature setting and check that
thermostat is not set to “vacation”. Check and reset breaker on power panel.
Check and reset the button next to the thermostat. Check that the pilot
light is lit. If not, read the instructions on water heater and follow
the instructions to light it.
No hot water:
A: Our lease term is typically twelve months. Occasionally we have
tenants that wish to sign longer-term leases. This is handled on a case-by-case
basis and requires landlord approval.
No power to plugs or switches:
Check and reset breaker panel. Reset any GFI outlets (usually
located near water in the kitchen, bathrooms, utility rooms and garages).
Check if outlet works by turning on a wall switch in the room. Also,
please test the item that you are trying to use in several outlets to
see if it’s the outlet or the electronic that is faulty.

Turn off water fixture, turn off water at supply line and
notify McCreary Realty immediately.
