You will be sent the necessary documents along with a return envelope in which you return the signed Service Agreement and your check. 3) Call the Order Desk at (925) 988-7650 to arrange an appointment for the handyman lead to come to your manor. He will accept your signed Service Agreement and check and also perform a walk-through of your manor if you wish. This will allow you to discuss potential issues and allow him to become familiar with your manor for the future. 4) Print out a copy of the Service Agreement, fill it out and send it with a check for the correct amount to GRF to 800 Rockview Drive, Attn: Handyman Service.

A: You are allowed four calls per month with each call allowing up to four hours of work. If additional service is needed for a call, it may be granted at the discretion of management.

A: Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding holidays. You may call for service during those hours, or leave a voice mail outside of those hours and your call will be returned the next business day.

Q: If I sell my unit and move to another manor within Rossmoor, does the Service Agreement move with me?
A: No. The Service Agreement is tied to the manor. The new buyer will retain the Service Agreement benefit.
