PROPERTY MANAGEMENT


PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

(2) PROPERTY MANAGEMENT:

In estate surveying and valuation, property management is different from agency, in that while agency services terminate with letting or sale of the property and remittance of rent or proceeds of the transaction to the Landlord (vendor), the management surveyor retains control of the property, directing and supervision his clients interest with the purpose of maximizing the investor's return on the investment which could be financial, social or even in cultural terms as the case may be.  We have some properties in our management portfolio , both residential, commercial, and industrial properties, and we ensure that our client sit back and enjoy the fruit of their investment, while we take responsibility over:

* The quality of his tenant

* Fair market rents on his properties

* Local, state and federal taxes on his properties

*Lease and tenancy agreement with the tenants, including renewals and pre-vacation inspections

* Service bills such as electricity, water and refuse collection from multi-tenanted properties

* Security

*Insurance

*Repairs and maintenance


These among others are some of the many management services our clients enjoy. It would also be necessary to mention here that we  do not manage for the Landlord, but also for the tenant. For tenants, we could manage their leases by projecting and protecting their interest in the property and ensuring that they are not harassed by the Landlords. In fact, even where we represent the  landlord, it is our belief that a property is well managed only if both the Landlord and Tenant are happy with the performance of the management surveyor.
