Maintenance Requests

Online Maintenance Requests


Renters can submit requests for maintenance repairs.

Renters can check the status of their requests online.

Property Managers can cut down on the number of after-hours phone calls.

Maintenance issues are inevitable and happen at all hours of the day. Using AppFolio's Online Portal, your residential, student housing, and commercial renters can submit maintenance requests directly to their property management company at their convenience.

Residents can enter a detailed description of the issue, select whether the property manager has permission to enter with their key, and click Submit Request. It’s that easy! They can then check the progress of their request as it moves from received, to scheduled, to completed.
