Not in the moment. CHARLESGATE has a 24/7/365 emergency on-call service. When a call comes through our call center, it is dispatched to our on-call Property Manager who manages the situation and takes action if appropriate. The rate for our maintenance technicians after-hours is $112.50 per hour, however, 3rd party vendors are billed at their hourly cost if they are needed for a larger issue.
During standard business hours, (9:00AM – 5:00PM) the rate is $75 per hour. If it is an emergency call that falls outside of those hours/on the weekend, the rate is $112.50 per hour. If specialized 3rd party vendors are required, they bill at their hourly rate.

If this happens, please send it over to your assigned Property Manager who will either: A) handle it if it’s a standard problem or B) collaborate with you on a solution if it’s a larger one. Tenants are strongly encouraged to submit maintenance requests through their online AppFolio portal as that is the fastest way to get it resolved by their Property Manager.
