Add and track property maintenance services

In Buildium, adding a maintenance task for you or your staff is as simple as putting another item on your to-do list. Residents, owners, and staff members can submit tasks and attach videos, documents, and images. You’ll save time by eliminating manual maintenance request management. Receiving status updates on your computer, phone, or tablet is another way to minimize calls from staff members.

Schedule recurring maintenance tasks

Some property maintenance services, like landscaping or garbage removal, need to be scheduled regularly. Stay on top of these tasks by marking them as “recurring items” on your maintenance list. Keep vendors in the loop by sending reminders when maintenance tasks need to be completed.

Add and track maintenance vendors

You can keep track of maintenance vendors with our fully integrated property management accounting features. Adding vendors into Buildium is an easy and necessary step in recording and paying your property maintenance expenses. Fill out a simple form to add vendors. If you have a list of vendors that you want to enter into Buildium at once, you can import them in bulk. You can also generate and view vendor performance reports, so you always assign property maintenance tasks to the most efficient vendors.

Pay maintenance vendors

Vendor bills and expenses can be recorded and paid within the system, so you’ll never need to enter data more than once. The 1099-MISC e-filing section in Buildium allows you to enter relevant tax information for vendors. Everything that you enter automatically records in Buildium and your bank account. This information will only be used at tax time if you’d like to generate your 1099s through Buildium. Have your vendors fill out a W-9 form (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) immediately so you aren’t waiting for it at the end of the year.
