What happens when property management company takes over and you have no rental agreement?
Tenancy law is different in different countries but the "property management company taking over" part is neither here nor there. For the UK, if you do not have a rental agreement in place then as a tenant you are (strangely) very well protected by the law from eviction and the landlord has very few rights at all. However, a good management company will come and meet with you and ask you to sign an appropriate tenancy agreement, which will be better for everyone in the long term.

You can get out of any contract (most any contract) with the right circumstances. The circumstances of course are Dependant upon the terms of the contract; every contract is unique with its own rules and exclusions.
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)
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.

It can take anywhere from 10 days to a month, depending on whether the tenant paid the rent due to the Clerk's Registry, if the eviction is for non-payment of rent.
Yes, if it says so on the lease.

They have the right to maintain the property as they see fit, as long as it's not for th…e purposes of invading your privacy or harassing you. If, during the normal course of their inspection, they see something wrong such as poor housekeeping to the proliferation of pests, they have the right to have you correct the problem or they can evict you.

Can a tenant break a rental agreement if the landlord or manager did not inform you that they are demolishing your current rental property in the near future?
In some states yes, in others no. Before demolition the landlord must give notices to vacate. The leases must expire or terminate in favor of the tenant.
Can a person claim a piece of property they have lived on for a long period of time with no rental agreement?
Maybe. It depends on the exact circumstances, and the laws of yourparticular state. Most states in the U.S. (as well as other common-law countries,such as Canada and the UK) adhere fairly closely to the common-lawrules of adverse possession, which is a doctrine allowing asquatter to take title to l…and if they occupy it continuously for acertain period of time. To take title under adverse possession, several elements have to bemet. They are: 1. Continuous occupation of land 2. In a manner adverse to the ownership interest of the true owner(so, if you're there with the explicit permission of the owner, youcan never take title under adverse possession) 3. In a manner which is open and notorious, meaning that areasonable owner would be put on notice that someone is occupyingthe land. 4. The land is used in a manner consistent with a true owner - forexample, if the land is suited only for agriculture, the adversepossessor should use it for that purpose. Likewise, if the land isonly suited for human use for part of the year (perhaps it's in thewilderness and inaccessible in winter), occupation only during thetimes it is accessible will satisfy the requirement of continuousoccupation. 5. All of the above elements were continuously satisfied for astatutorily set period. This varies from state to state, and manystates have different time limits depending on the circumstances,but it is generally 7 to 20 years. Basically, adverse possession is a statute of limitations forcontinuous trespass - the owner of the land has to remove anadverse possessor from the land within the statutory time limit, orthey run the risk of losing title to the property. You should note that adverse possession does not apply if you havepermission to be on the land, even if all the other elements aremet, because, in such a case, you aren't an "adverse" possessor.However, if the owner explicitly revokes permission, but doesnothing to actually eject you from the land, then you become anadverse possession, and the time period begins to run from thatpoint forward.

Is it legal for property management to sign a lease agreement as the landowner without the landowners permission?
Absolutely not! Not without your written/signed consent. If Property Management did so, it seems you would have had to sign a Property Management Agreement with them that gave them that authority. You would read over the agreement you signed when you signed on with the management services.
No, you are not required to depreciate rental property. Sometimes,when a person knows they aren't going to keep the property but ayear or two, it may not be to their advantage to depreciate theproperty as they will have to recapture the depreciation uponselling it. Depreciation is a deduction that y…ou are allowed totake on your tax return in order to reduce your taxable income fromthis source, but it is not required. (MORE)
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.

If the fire works are illegal the car would be impounded. You would be responsible for the towing and impound fees. Not to mention all the legal issues.
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.

Is it illegal for a property management company of a condominium complex to withhold an agreement from FHA unless they receive a confidentiality agreement from the mortgage company?
The association's board is in charge of sharing association detailswith the FHA. This is their decision to make, not a decision to bemade by the vendor.
Yes . examples are damage to car because you did not take out CDW (Collision Damage Waver) , your brought the car back late or that or if you hadn't paid for full tank option, they can charge you for the fuel used if you brought it with less than you took it.
You probably don't have to (landlord/tenant laws vary by state), but you would be really stupid to rent property without a written agreement.

Some mortgages are "assumable" which means that if you meet the lenders criteria you may assume the mortgage at the original terms and take over from the current mortgagee and homeowner. Assumable mortgages have become less common over the last decade and saw a sharp decline during the onset of the …housing market crash in 2007. The loan note for the current mortgage will state whether or not the loan may be assumed. If the loan can not be assumed or you do not qualify, the loan must be paid off by a loan you obtained or refinanced into your name in order for you to become the mortgagee on a property. (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.
