Frequently Asked Questions
How does the service work?
We will perform apartment checks on a regular basis depending on what plan you signed up for. We offer weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly apartment checks on a yearly basis with PDF reports. We also offer a key holding yearly plan. This plan allows us to be on call for an emergency 24/7 and have access to your apartment throughout the year should we need it.
What security measures are in place?
As former owners of a concierge service, we've been doing this for years and handle security with the utmost attention. The entire ApartCheck team will sign confidentiality agreements and contracts before working with a client and entering the apartment. Only employees of ApartCheck will have access to the safe with the keys to your apartment. Once the apartment has been visited, they key will be returned to the safe immediately. If you have an alarm, only the checker assigned to your apartment will have this information.
Who will be checking my apartment?
We have a trustworthy and reliable team of checkers who have been vetted, trained, and have full background checks. You will be assigned 2 checkers (one main checker and one back up) for your apartment visits.
Will the apartment check fall on the same day?
Yes, all checks will be performed on the same day of the week. The schedule will be pre-planned by our team and stuck to throughout the course of the year. Rescheduling a check will incur a fee.
What happens if a problem is discovered during the check?
We will inform you about the problem immediately. If you would like us to handle the issue we can do so for the following rates :

How does it work if I don't need your services for the whole year?
We charge you for the year in full and then reimburse you the second year (depending on how many apartment checks were not necessary since you were in residence). Reimbursements are only given for those residing in their apartment for A MINIMUM OF one month.
