How do I report a maintenance issue?

If you are experiencing a maintenance issue in your home, contact the Maintenance Solution Center (MSC) at (315) 955-6650 as soon as possible. For routine service requests, you may also submit your maintenance request online

With the MSC, you can expect: 

  • Upgraded call handling and customer experience
  • US-based representatives with strong facilities knowledge
  • New call back feature offered to avoid wait times
  • Appointment notifications and reminders
  • Superior response and specialized technician assignments
Our experienced customer service agents are available for 14-hours each weekday to assist you with routine, urgent and emergency service requests. When a request occurs on a weekend or after hours, your MSC call will be handled by an automated after-hours service that puts you in direct contact with the technician who will be responding to your urgent or emergency request. Click here for more information on the MSC. 

Don’t forget to download the RentCafé Resident App and enable notifications to receive an alert when the maintenance technician is on their way to your home!
