Most of the residents in high-rise housing do not realise the importance of proper building management until the physical buildings and shared facilities have deteriorated. Accordingly, this paper identified the factors for effective repair and maintenance services in a housing setting by utilising a systematic literature review method. Relevant information was analysed through content analysis techniques across various peer-reviewed journal articles. The results yielded the potential factors for effective repair and maintenance services in high-rise housing. This study thus contributes to the field by deriving valuable reference for property management companies tasked with managing such houses in consideration of the factors necessary for effective repair and maintenance towards building quality and sustainability.
