If a property management company omits an account and fails to collect the fees due should the management company reimburse the homeowners association for the loss?
Answer lien . it's not a property management duty to pay HOA fees, it is owners duty,but property management Co may be able to pay due to HOA from the proceeds of the rent collected by them..if owners agreed and notified. and if HOA can't locate the owner and know the property managed by Company… ask manager to help with this matter firs and no help,then post. lien (A claim against the property of another person for payment of some debt or obligation that the person owes to the claimant) on the property..

You can find your answer in your lease agreement. The fee is legal and payable if you signed a rental agreement that specified this amount as a late fee and you paid your rent late.
Condominium associations are governed by: (1) State Law, (2) the documents creating the condominium, usually the Declaration of Condominium, and (3) the Bylaws of the Condominium Association. Often, a condominium association will hire a property management company to manage the day-to-day operation…s such as collecting assessments, paying routine bills, handling calls from unit owners, etc. The property management company will usually enter into a contract that outlines the duties and obligations of each party. That contract should contain terms including the length of the contract and methods of ending the contract early. As with any contract, there are other remedies based in contract law. For example, if the management company is not living up to their obligations in the contract, they may have "materially breached" the contract in a way that would allow the the association to terminate the contract due to that breach. Usually, a property management company will agree to terminate a contract where the arrangement is not working out. Of course, it is the association, not the property owners, who makes the decision to enter into a contract or what steps should be taken in the course of business. The Bylaws of the Association usually outline the structure of the governing body. This is usually a Board of Directors with several officers. The number of board members and how they are elected will be established by the bylaws. Often, the board will elect or appoint officers of the association such as a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. It will usually be up to the Board to make decisions regarding the hiring and firing of a property management. However, it is not unusual for a board to delegate such powers to the President of the Association. (MORE)
Yes. Leasing is defined as a written contractual agreement between an owner of property (lessor) and a second party (lessee). The lessee receives the right to use or occupy the leased property for a specified period of time in return for payment. If the lessee fails to fulfill the terms of the lease… they are still responsible for full payment for the period covered by the lease. A rental is usually for a shorter period of time. (MORE)
If a property management company doesn't have a renter for a property who is responsible for the mortgage payment The property management company or the landlord?
That is correct. The landlord is responsible for the mortgage payment as the investment property is ultimately his (name on the deed). And I also agree with the advice given below. A competent and successful property manager will get vacancies filled. In a slow market, it's natural for a home to …sit vacant for a few weeks, but the property manager should be doing everything in his/her power to get that home rented - including aggressive marketing. the landlord of course, but the landlord may need to start looking for a more reliable property management company.

Yes. Property remains subject to a mortgage until the mortgage is paid off. If a person purchases property that is subject to a mortgage that the seller granted to a bank, the new owner must pay the mortgage or the bank can foreclose.
Owners of a company or shareholders prevent effective management because they really dictate for the dirctors in the company and mostly demand for more income no matter the situation.

Depending on your governing documents, usually, the responsibility for preserving, maintaining and protecting the communally owned assets belongs to the board of directors. The board of directors -- or the developer if the condominium development is relative new -- signed a contract with the manage…ment company. At the board's discretion, it can fire the management company by cancelling the contract. If owners have disagreements with the management company, the owners can refer to specific sections of the governing documents to show where the management company is not conforming to the appropriate governance guidelines. If the management company chooses to ignore the governing documents, then owners can send a formal complaint to the board of directors, documenting the potential breach of contract based on this non-conformance. The service agreement, however, is between the board of directors on behalf of owners, and the management company. (MORE)
A property management company claims to be in contract to manage our HOA with our developer who says we have NOT formed an HOA yet and the property management wants homeowners to pay working capital?
Read your governing documents to determine the phase that your HOA is in, in the development process. Your governing documents -- typically a Public Offering Statement (POS) -- may specify that at the time of sale, a contribution equal to a few months' worth of estimated assessments is to be paid… by buyers -- usually as working capital. Unless this expense has been collected from all buyers equitably, it is unreasonable that an individual owner should be expected to simply 'pay it' at some future date. Generally, if no association board has either been appointed by the developer or elected by owners, as an owner, there is no legal entity to whom you can pay your assessments because there is no legal entity established to collect them. (Property managers can only collect assessments from shareholders on behalf of legal corporations formed to accommodate ownership of real estate assets in common. Assessments require some kind of budget base, either as developed in the POS as a draft or sample, or ratified by the membership.) Prior to the establishment of the association, an ethical developer will pay costs incurred to operate the property -- including property management fees, since the benefit derived by unsold properties passes to the developer. (The developer's objective is to sell units, to recapture the investment.) Until the association is formed, owners may be required to pay their own utilities and other expenses, including landscaping, trash services, and so forth until the association is formed and these expenses are included in assessments.

How long can a property management company hold the owner's reserve funds once the property management agreement has been terminated?
This time period may or may not have been defined in your contract. Call other property managers in the same industry in your locale, and ask the question about the time period. Then, send a letter to your property management company, certified, return receipt requested, and demand that your rese…rve funds be paid within that period. If you do not receive the funds, you can take your contract, termination papers and copy of your certified letter to an attorney and involve professional assistance in collecting your monies. (MORE)
Working security for condo property rent is paid by resident and management company re emburses security?

While property managers and property management companies arehired by property owners, they charge fees to both owners andtenants. Also, if you've asked your property manager to beresponsibile for maintenance and repairs, they may also place amark up on contractors they hire on your behalf. Or, they… mayactually own a maintenance company that has an exclusive contractto maintain all their properties. All of this should be disclosedand discusseed with property owners before entering a contract. Fees charged to owners: . A percentage of the monthy rent or a flat fee . 50% or more of the first months rent when they find a newtenant . Tax document prepartion fees . Maintenance and repair fees . Eviction processing fees Fees charged to tenants: . Rental application/credit check fees . Nuisance service call fees (e.g. repair requests that resultfrom tenant errors) .

What if a natural gas company built a road on your property prior to you buying the property can the land owner ask for a yearly fee for the use of the property?
You should contact the attorney who represented you when you purchased your property. There should be an instrument in the chain of title for the property that describes the rights that were granted to the gas company by a prior owner. When you purchased the property a title examination should have …been performed and the attorney should be able to provide you with a copy of the instrument that created the easement. The most likely explanation is that a prior owner granted easement rights to the gas company for a small fee. You have no power to change the provisions set forth in that easement agreement. When you purchased the property you purchased it subject to any outstanding liens and encumbrances. If the attorney who represented you when you purchased your property cannot or will not help then you can go to your local land records office and ask the staff to help you find the easement so you can review its terms.

It depends. If you are a six-unit conversion of a brownstone on the upper east side of Manhattan and you've all lived in the building for 20 years and kept the property in good repair -- maybe not. If you're a new complex with multiple buildings, a mixed-use development with residential and c…ommercial, have a clubhouse, pool or putting green -- maybe yes. Everyone in between: the association needs to make this decision. These are the advantages of hiring a property manager (who knows that they're doing): . They offer a buffer between board members and neighbors . They can help the board honour the governing documents and abide by the state law that governs condominiums and possibly non-profit corporations . They can handle your finances and produce financial reports in the standard modified accrual method . They can offer a wider selection of vendors . They have experience working with recalcitrant owners who don't like to pay assessments, so they don't pay them . They can collect the names of tenants . They can send violation notices and enforce the governing documents Unless someone on the board is more or less willing to devote full time to operating the business -- usually a multi-million dollar corporation, a condominium-centric property manager is a vendor that most associations prefer to hire. Key is finding a property manager knowledgeable in managing condominium properties. A rental-centric property manager can generally be a waste of money, since without an understanding of governing documents and local state condominium law, this vendor can only offer a false sense of security to the association.

Unless it is in the contract or required by law, the property management company is probably not required to tell the property owner if a tenant commits suicide. However, common sense and protection from possible liability would recommend that action. A death would have occurred on that piece of pro…perty. The property owner should be notified. The property owner should have a copy of the investigation and a copy of the death certificate. If the property owner never receives a certified letter with a copy of the investigation, it would seem like the management company might be part of a coverup in a death. So, to protect itself, the property management company should send the property owner a certified letter with a return receipt containing the report of the investigation. (MORE)
If you have a year lease for a house and you pay your rent on time every month can the lease be broken because the property management suddenly found you had a bankruptcy?
If they asked you on the application, and you lied, then, yes, technically, that is a lease violation that gives the landlord the right to terminate the lease. But, you make a very good point - why would they bother at this point? Sometimes, big management companies have hardline policies because th…ey don't want word to get out that they're soft. Evicting you would be a pain, and not really worth it. They might be smart to write you a letter saying that they will not be renewing the lease when it's up. (MORE)
This is strictly your choice. A responsible landlord is interested in not only renting property, but is also interested in how that rental can affect the entire community and neighborhood. (This helps preserve your investment.) For example, some condominiums require that owners screen tenants …with complete background and financial checks, check references and past housing records, provide names of all persons expected to occupy the premises, obtain proof of insurance, automobile details and so forth. If you want to investigate prospective tenants at this level, regardless of the type of property you want to rent, then you can do it yourself. If, however, you want to deal with people on a more informed basis, you could hire a company to screen potential tenants and then choose one from the list of candidates who passes your screening criteria.

You pay your rent to a property management company for a condo unit but the owner is being foreclose on is this legal?
As a tenant, your situation is determined by the written agreements that the owner has with the management company, with the association and its association manager, and with a lender, if any. It may or may not be legal; it may or may not be 'right' in this case. If monies are due to the assoc…iation: . unless the governing documents provide for the association's right to 'step into the revenue stream' to which you contribute in this case, the owner may be obliged to honour the agreement made with the management company (assuming that the property manager is not a vendor to the association as association manager). If monies are due to a lender: . the lender may have rights to the revenue stream if the owner has failed to honour his/her agreement with the lender. It is unseemly that the owner would be able to benefit from rental income in this situation, but the association and/or the lender may be able to benefit -- collecting assessments from the revenue stream and paying any excess amounts to whomever it is due. Specifically, your moral compass points in an appropriate direction. If you and the owner want to notify the entity foreclosing on the unit, of the management company's -- again, not the association manager -- involvement in the revenue stream, that would be up to you and the owner. Clarification The following is general information that may help to clarify your position: . You live in a rented condominium unit. . The owner has failed to pay or is unable to pay the mortgage. . Your lease and any rental agreement , if any, is subject to the mortgage. . You must continue to pay your rent until you are notified otherwise. . There is no reason why you should not pay your monthly rent as the proceeds may be assigned to the bank as part of the mortgage agreement. Expressed another way- there is no reason why you should live in the unit for free because the owner is facing foreclosure. . Your monthly rental may continue indefinitely with the bank receiving the income until the unit is sold to a new owner. . It is perfectly legal that you continue to pay your monthly rent and you should make certain you keep a record of proof of payments. (MORE)
Limits can be interpreted in multiple ways in your question. Limits to the amount of assessments are managed by owners who vote against annual budgets. Every owner is best advised to understand how much it costs to operate the association, to protect it, to maintain it and to preserve everyone's… real estate investment. Limits as to collecting unpaid assessments usually reach as high as selling a unit or a home to collect unpaid assessments. This is usually a last resort, after all other collection options have been exhausted by the board. Read your governing documents to understand how to become involved in the budget process, so at least you understand what your assessments pay for, and further, to understand your board's responsibility to collect assessments that you owe.

Under the property tax systems used in the United States, all companies pay real and personal property taxes unless they are expressly exempt from taxation by state tax laws. Property assessment and property tax abatement, deferrals, and exemptions vary by state in the United States. Some states pro…vide incentives to certain businesses and industries to local there through tax abatement for a specific time period if local jobs are created or retained. inc The form of ownership - that is a person, a corporation, a partnership, trust, etc. does not change the taxability of the property in anyway. EXCEPT some places provider breaks for things like elderly, veterans, disabled, etc. A company owning the same house as you do personally will pay the 4exact same tax as you. properties that are used by business for commercial uses, again indifferent to if owned by a person or a corporation, etc - generally pay higher taxes than a corresponding residential property.

I love my new job but I miss my apartment here... sure wish my new place was as great. :) (MORE)

What you'll pay your property manager will vary depending on whatservices you require, the type of property you own, and where yourproperty is located, but here are some standard fee structures: . Percentage of monthly rent: If you choose toemploy a property management company on a full-service ba…sis,you'll most likely be charged a percentage of the monthly rent onyour property. This can range anywhere from 5-15%, with 8-10% beingcommon. Under this fee structure, if your unit isn't rented, youdon't pay. . Flat-fee: For larger buildings, propertymanagers often charge a flat fee per month, regardless of how manyunits are rented at any given time. Property managers typicallywork on a flat-fee basis when they expect managing your building torequire a significant percentage of their company's time andresources. . Project-based: When you employ a propertymanager for selected services only, project-based fees are common.For example, if you hire a property management company to fill avacant property, you might be charged the equivalent of one month'srent for the privilege. That said, there are other fees that property managers chargeowners as well as tenants. Given that the most important aspect ofresidential property management finding, screening and retaininggood tenants, most property managers will charge anywhere between50% and 100% of the first month's rent.

Can a property management company tell the tenant that they are the owners in fee of a property if they are not the fee owners?
There is nothing to prevent a property management company from lying about the ownership of the property, as long as that does not contribute to a fraud. It is not uncommon for a fee owner of rental properties to hire a property manager and grant it power to represent the owner and manage the prop…erty. That may lead to misunderstanding as to who is the owner. However, the identity of the fee owner is easy to determine. You can research the fee owners in the local land records and at the town assessors office. If you think a misrepresentation has harmed you then you should call or visit your local landlord-tenant agency or consult with an attorney. (MORE)

Property management companies generally want to deliver profits and growth to their partners. They want to deliver exceptional services to their clients and partners.
Yes, but it is not a wise strategy according to best practices. Why? Board members in associations may be volunteers, but they have legal obligations, responsibilities with actions governed by state laws. In a very small community -- say six owners -- an experienced board member with a deep bu…siness background may be able to lead the community in ways to both maintain, protect and preserve the real estate assets, and save the association money by not hiring association management. This scenario also assumes that the value of the assets is not great, and that all owners are financially stable enough to pay cash for major projects. It also assumes that the leader won't die, sell or otherwise be unable to carry on. A larger association is a multi-million dollar association measured by the market value of the assets that require oversight. No business professional wants that magnitude of responsibility without a knowledgeable team. Governing documents and state laws dictate how the business operates and how the assets can be used. A self-managed association may not be able to keep up with updates in state laws, municipal code updates and so forth. Association managers -- not property managers who rent real estate -- understand the business of associations, state laws, municipal requirements and are a repository of expertise that a volunteer board can lean on for guidance.
