COVID-19 Information for Charleston Property Company Owners and Residents

We're in strange new territory as we work #AloneTogether to navigate the current COVID-19 quarantine and social distancing protocols in South Carolina. With the continued escalation of COVID-19—also known as the novel Coronavirus or SARS-CoV-2—Charleston Property Company wants to express our deepest sympathy to those impacted during this time. We also want to keep you informed about changes to our daily operations while we continue to serve our owners and residents!

We know you might be watching the news and questioning how COVID-19 might affect your community, your property, or the rental you currently call "home" here in the Charleston area. Please rest assured that our team is here for you as we all find our way through this situation as a nation. 

Even though we're working remotely, we're still on the frontlines for our owners and residents. This change to the way we operate is designed to continue providing only the highest quality property management services to you during this time, but also the safest. Please refer back to this page often for updates to our temporary COVID-19 protocols and other helpful information.

For Medical Assistance

Our Current Estimated Response Times

We are doing our best to respond promptly and effectively to all requests during this time. While we might have to adjust how we serve you physically, we have developed a system to receive, respond, and prioritize all requests as current safe-contact conditions allow.

All maintenance work orders are processed on a case-by-case basis. We are working with our vendors to ensure they operate within current safety protocols for both entry and non-entry maintenance services.

Rent and Security Deposits

For residents, we now require that all rent payments be made online or through the mail via USPS. Since our offices are closed to the public, we cannot accept rent checks in-person to further ensure your safety.

If you need to make a security deposit for your new home, these are currently being handled online through your tenant portal. 

Your Safety Is Our Priority!

Charleston Property Company values the safety of our owners, renters, and our team. By adjusting how we operate during this time of social distancing due to COVID-19 protocols, we can join the community to protect each other and #BeatTheVirus.
