Repairs and Maintenance FAQs

What types of maintenance tasks can I log?

You and your tenant can add any type of maintenance task required, and you’ll be able to address the request and mark it as complete once the work has been completed. As soon as the task has been marked complete, the result and cost will appear in the expenses section of your reports.

How do I source a supplier/contractor to complete any maintenance work?

RentBetter has a partner who offers services and quotes for maintenance jobs. Just visit and you can set up an account and get quotes for your tasks.

How much notice do I need to provide a tenancy if I require maintenance to be done on my property?

Typically, prior to getting a quote or commencing work, you would have discussed the issue with your tenant. Quite often the request starts with the tenant identifying an issue, so they are usually on board with the work required.
