Possible Charges to Tenant
As a tenant, it's important to be aware of potential charges that may be incurred based on certain circumstances. Here are some situations where you may be responsible for additional costs:
Maintenance Repairs Due to Misuse or Negligence: If it is determined that any maintenance repairs are necessary due to your misuse or negligence, you may be held responsible for the associated costs. Examples of such situations could include damage caused by improper handling, failure to follow instructions, or neglecting routine maintenance tasks.
Technician Calls with No Problem Found: In cases where you request a technician to address an issue, but upon investigation, no problem is found, you may be charged for the service call. It is essential to communicate effectively with the property management or maintenance team to ensure that genuine issues are properly identified before requesting service visits.
Missed Scheduled Appointments: If you fail to keep a scheduled appointment with a maintenance professional, you are subject to charges. These charges are usually imposed to compensate for the wasted time and effort of the technician, as well as to encourage better adherence to scheduled appointments in the future.
