Very few things truly qualify as an actual emergency. Fires, floods, break-ins resulting in the inability to secure the property qualify as emergencies. Power outages, furnace or air conditioner failures should be reported during normal business hours.
Q: What if I am locked out of my apartment?
Unfortunately, lockouts are not considered an emergency. We do everything we can to help avoid you locking yourself out. Therefore, the only reason will be if you have lost your key. If you are locked out after hours, you will need to contact a locksmith at your own expense. If you are locked out during office hours our Property Manager will meet you and let you in, there will be a $25 charge. In most cases we will be able to provide you with a new set of keys for a fee.
