Emergency contacts


We encourage our residents to call CHAD when you have or see a maintenance problem.  When calling in a maintenance request, please also advise of any home entry restrictions, such as specific times, and if there are any pets. If no one is home, all pets or assistance animals must be crated. No charge is assessed for repairs or maintenance unless such repairs or maintenance are the result of negligence or mistreatment by the tenant(s) or guests of the tenant(s). Please note that if something breaks or goes wrong within your unit, and your failure to report it leads to further damage to the unit, then you may be required to pay the cost of the repair.
