Rental Property Maintenance Services

Owning luxury rental real estate in San Diego requires regular and diligent repair services in order to keep the premises in safe and habitable condition. Property maintenance preserves both healthy condition of your rental unit and the market value by handling issues as they arise and by conducting regular maintenance inspections. Our agency offers an effective bundle of repair services as part of long-term management package. It is also included in our short-term (vacation) rental management package for those of you who rent out beach or urban residences short-term or seasonally. 

Our rental property repair and maintenance services include:

Maintenance and Repair

Corrective maintenance services are coordinated by your designated property manager and include repairing physical deterioration by ordinary use (reasonable wear and tear) such as worn carpet, light scuff marks on walls or floors, drywall patching, peeling wallpaper, etc. It also includes fixing more serious problems on the premises and grounds, like issues with piping, water leaks, toilets, electrical work, or water heaters. After the tenant reports the issue, our manager immediately contacts trusted vendors to resolve the issue as soon as possible, in order to reduce inconveniences for the tenants.

24/7 Emergency Assistance

24/7 hotline for emergencies is a substantial advantage for your tenants. Having on-call personnel gives tenants a sense of security and confidence, which is quite important when you think about occupant retention rates and high-quality tenants. When an accident like bursting pipe or water heater breakage occurs, our manager swiftly coordinates the repair with local, reputable vendors. The priority is placed on quality work and prompt response.

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive operations include regular maintenance such as gutter cleaning, changing HVAC filters, pest control, re-caulking, power washing, special amenities (pool, hot tub, sauna) and so on. Precautionary maintenance is vital for increasing your rental unit worth, as they are a major factor in retaining the proper and healthy condition of the estate.

Regular Inspections

Regular building and ground inspections are very helpful as they identify and resolve problems before they escalate further. More importantly, frequent inspections ensure your real estate remains profitable in the future. Inspections include testing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, checking appliances, inspecting the pipes, etc.

Tenant Requests for Maintenance

Swell Property provides user-friendly system for tenants to submit repair requests. The procedure is fairly simple and straightforward: after the issue has been reported, our property manager will promptly coordinate the repair with the subcontractor.

Move-in & Move-out Inspections

Before the new tenant moves in, the manager will inspect the premises and organize repairs if necessary in order to have the unit safe and ready for the next occupant. In case there are repairs which do not fall under the normal wear and tear, funds will be used from the security deposit amount so that you, as an owner, do not have unexpected expenses.

Safety Regulations Compliance  

Our team is familiar with all local, state, and federal rules and regulations pertinent to California’s rental industry. We will ensure your property follows all local health and safety regulations.
