What if there is an emergency maintenance request and what constitutes an emergency?In the event of an emergency, tenants need to call the VHS Management office during business hours and use our emergency hotline that is available after hours, weekends and holidays. In general, the only maintenance issue that constitutes a true emergency is flooding.

VHS Management may work with a tenant in this instance so long as there is no financial loss to the owner. In this event, a tenant is required to pay a leasing commission fee and is fully responsible for the lease until a new tenant takes possession.
