Common questions owners ask about maintenance
Tenants report maintenance requests through our mobile tenant app with detailed photos and videos. The owner then receives a phone notification to view the details of the request from their tenant. From there they can choose from the following options:
- Find a tradie (this allows us to go ahead and assign a tradesperson, however we’ll always source quotes for estimates of $250)
- I will fix it myself
- I have a preferred tradie
- Under Warranty
- I’d like to discuss this further
For context, we receive over 100 maintenance requests a week, and review 97% of requests received through the app within 12 hours. The faster your maintenance request is approved and validated, the faster the property will be back in working order.
Tenants will report maintenance/repairs through their tenant app which will then be sent to you for approval, from there we'll use our best judgement to review and determine what's the most suitable method to amend the issue.
The tenant and yourself will be able to track the progress of the repair/maintenance issue via the app using our maintenance tracker, allowing you to view any details, photos, videos and the details of the tradesperson it’s been assigned too.
When tenants report a maintenance/repair issue through the app, they're required to provide as much detail as possible and include photos and video footage. :Different will then review this report and send it through to you for approval. We always utilise our best judgement to assess the issue before matching the job with an appropriate tradesperson.

In taking care of your property, we have developed a network of trusted tradespeople for the jobs. Every member of our network is highly reviewed and complies with all licensing regulations.
Of course, you can fix the maintenance issue yourself or if you have a preferred tradie you would like us to use just let us know the details when we send through the request. We will then inform the tenants and update our system.
We will provide you with a maintenance cost estimate, using data on the 80th percentile of the cost of previous repairs for similar issues.
