Service Request

Balfour Beatty Communities is committed to providing quality services to all residents. Our maintenance technicians will schedule service according to priority: Emergency, Urgent and Routine which are defined further down on this page.

Routine service requests

  • Submit online via Resident Portal or call 803-787-6416.
  • Requests will be responded to within 2 business days and may be scheduled to be completed on weekdays from 8:00am to 4:00pm.

Emergency and Urgent service requests

  • Call the Maintenance office at 803-787-6416. Do not submit online.
  • Emergency requests will be responded to within 30 minutes during normal working hours or 1 hour during non-normal working hours. Urgent requests will be responded to within 4 hours during normal and/or non-normal working hours.

 

Authorization to Enter Information

At lease signing, all residents are given the option of signing the "Release to Enter" form, which authorizes service requests to be performed without the resident or a designated representative being at home while the requested work is completed. By signing, residents also further agree to isolate any pets to a room in the home that will not be accessed by the maintenance personnel. If a resident chooses to refrain from signing the "Authorization to Enter" form, a time to perform the maintenance request will be scheduled by the Service Request Administrator.
