1. Provide Detailed Information

When submitting a repair or maintenance request, it's important to provide as much detail as possible. This may include the location of the issue, the type of repair needed, and any relevant photos. Providing detailed information helps ensure that the request is understood and accurately processed by the maintenance team. It also ensures that the issue is resolved quickly and efficiently.

This helps ensure that the issue is resolved quickly and does not create further issues.

3. Follow Up

After submitting a repair or maintenance request, be sure to follow up with the HOA or maintenance team as needed. This includes checking in to see when the repair will be completed or asking for updates on the progress. Following up can help ensure that the request is being addressed and can prevent any miscommunications or misunderstandings.

4. Utilize Technology

Many HOA communities offer technology-based solutions to submitting and tracking repair and maintenance requests. These solutions may include an HOA service request management app or a web-based system. Using these technologies can make submitting and tracking requests more efficient and convenient. It also ensures that requests are not lost or overlooked in the paperwork shuffle.
