Property managers have a lot of responsibilities. We can help you understand both your duties and rights according to state laws, leases, and other legal documents. Our property management attorney will evaluate your legal documents as well as guide you through legal claims.
Limiting Your Personal Liability as a Property Manager
It’s important to limit your own personal liability as a property manager. This means that the company you work for or the organization you form will be responsible for legal issues that may arise. You do not want to be personally held accountable for the duties and responsibilities of the company or organization.
Property managers who form limited liability companies or otherwise incorporate can form a protective entity between themselves and tenants. When tenants have issues, they address them with the company instead of an individual. This protects personal assets as well as relationships that live outside of the property management environment.
Property managers often need separate legal representation from the company or organization that owns the property itself. This provides separation of your rights and responsibilities. Our property management attorney will focus on your needs and help protect you throughout the legal process.
