Repairs & Maintenance

JLS Property Management requires tenant(s) to maintain the Premise in a reasonable condition, which includes the interior of the unit/home as well as the exterior, and keep it clean and tidy.

For any maintenance issues:

1 – go to and click on Service Issue
2 - go to our website, and click on the Maintenance Request tab to fill out and submit a maintenance request
3 - for emergencies such as Water Leaks, No Heat or Safety Concerns text or call 320-828-7206.

Note: any repairs or maintenance required due to the intentional or negligent acts of the tenant(s) or their guest shall be made by JLS at the tenant(s) expense. Examples of such repairs include, but are not limited to:

  • Clogged Drains & Plumbing
  • Replacement of Furnace Filters (Tenant is required to replace every 30 days), burnt out light bulbs and smoke detectors batteries (every 6 months)
  • Damage or misuse of appliances (burners, shelves, handles), window treatments, light fixtures, doors & walls

All charges will be billed to the tenant(s) and MUST be paid within 10 business days.

All tenant(s) are also responsible to inform JLS of any water leaks or running water in their unit/home. A running toilet is like an open faucet and can use $50 of water in a 24 hour period. Running water in toilets is typically the result of one of the two reasons below:

  • Fast Running toilet – this is caused by a tangled chain (rope, string, plastic or metal) inside the toilet tank which is preventing the rubber “flapper” at the bottom from closing
  • Slow Running toilet – This is noticeable when the toilet continues to run water and then shuts off in 10-30 seconds intervals. This is cause by a worn out Flush Valve.

In the case of an Extreme Water Leak, such as a broken faucet or pipe, shut off the water near the water heater.

Sanitary sewer back-ups can be caused by a build-up of flushable wipes, among other items, in the sanitary sewer pipes. Wipes advertised as ‘flushable’ do not break down in the sewer system and can lead to blocked pipes. Any costs related to unplugging or unclogging sinks, tubs/showers and toilets will be the responsibility of the tenant(s) to pay for.

** Think Before You Flush **

Only dispose of the following items in the trash

- Hair
- Grease/Cooking Oil
- Diapers
- Cleaning Wipes
- Feminine products
- Flushable Wipes
DO NOT flush down the toilet.

All cooking oil, poultry fat or grease must be disposed of by allowing it to cool down, placed in a sealed non-recyclable container and disposed of in the garbage.
