This is a hard question to answer because we have hundreds of flows with thousands of questions! High level, we walk tenants through checking GFI switches, breakers, plugs, shut off valves, pilots, reset buttons, surface level drain issues, obvious aerator blockages, thermostat batteries, filters, etc. Essentially anything that doesn’t require the tenant to pull out a tool set, we’ll troubleshoot with them!
We use all local, licensed service providers. Landlords can expect to pay the service providers market rate. Based on average market rates, you can expect pricing around the following price points:
– Handyman: $40-70/hr
– Plumbing: $70-100/hr
– Electrician: $70-120/hr
– HVAC: $70-100/hr
Any emergency or midnight dispatches could be up to 2x higher based on your city.

Our maintenance coordination partner Latchel looks at a variety of things to screen vendors. In an emergency situation availability is the most important factor, then they go based on payment methods, online reviews, size and capability, and ability to answer our contact attempts.

A preference is given to vendors who are able to sign up with the Latchel network directly and want continued work.
