Maintenance — Identify and Winterize Vacant or Abandoned Condominium Units
After this past winter of frigid temperatures, New Jersey condominium and townhome owners had hundreds of water pipe breaks which led to hundreds of thousands of dollars in remediation costs. Developing a plan to identify and winterize vacant or abandoned units is important to minimizing losses.
Utilize your newsletters and/or association meetings to encourage residents to alert you to these types of units. In the end, the cost and efforts to gain entry to winterize vacant or abandoned units will be much less than the costs of paying insurance deductibles, having increased claim frequency and potential increases in insurance premiums.
“While emergency calls have been few, Rezkom personnel have worked nights and weekends when needed and the Rezkom supervisors have always been helpful and responsive to all emergency needs.”

“I must tell you that the response time to handle any and all of our problems is excellent! I have even called Dennis over the weekends and if he doesn't pick up his cell phone I usually hear back from him within 15-30 minutes.”

“I wanted to take the time to thank you for sending Chris. He has really been an asset and made my life so much easier. Once he repairs something it is fixed... I am very pleased with Chris’s work ethic, attitude, punctuality and to put it simply he’s just a nice young man.”

I would like to thank Walter for all of his hard work and dedication to the community and more importantly for his commendable actions that helped avert a potentially disastrous fire. It gives me great pleasure to commend Walter and to know that Rezkom and its employees truly care about the residents and the communities where they work.”
