TO CALL OR NOT TO CALL, THAT IS THE QUESTION
New Mark is very lucky to have Abaris Realty as its new property manager. But you might be asking yourself: “Should I call or email Shireen and Abaris about this or not”.
What follows is a list of when to call Abaris and not to call them (at least not first).
One thing that Abaris should never be called about is where your utility shut-off valves or switches are, both indoor and outdoor.
- For indoor water or gas shut-off or electric circuit breaker boxes you could ask a neighbor or call a plumber or electrician.
- For the outside water or gas meters, or PEPCO meters call the utility or if you are doing outdoor construction work call Miss Utility at 811 or go online to Miss Utility Maryland.
Aside from the utility lines, valves or boxes, if you are not sure though, better safe than sorry. Drop Abaris a line.
WHAT NOT TO CALL ABARIS ABOUT
