What is Property Management?

 

Property management is the operation, control, maintenance, and oversight of real estate and physical property. This can include residential, commercial, and land real estate. Management indicates the need of real estate to be cared for and monitored, with accountability for and attention its useful life and condition considered. This is much akin to the role of management in any business.

Property management is also the management of personal property, equipment, tooling, and physical capital assets that are acquired and used to build, repair, and maintain end item deliverable. Property management involves the processes, systems, and manpower required to manage the life cycle of all acquired property as defined above including acquisition, control, accountability, responsibility, maintenance, utilisation, and disposition.

An owner of a single-family home, condominium, or multi-family building may engage the services of a professional property management company. The company will then advertise the rental property, handle tenant inquiries, screen applicants, select suitable candidates, draw up a lease agreement, conduct a move in inspection, move the tenant(s) into the property and collect rental income. The company will then coordinate any maintenance issues, supply the owner(s) with financial statements and any relevant information regarding the property, etc.

 

  • Maintaining the main structure of the building. For example, looking after the roof and external walls.

 

  • Maintaining and upgrading items within the building. For example, replacing lifts and upgrading fire alarms.

 

  • Maintaining the decoration of the building. For example, painting the communal areas and protecting the outside of the building.

 

  • Maintaining the building’s systems. For example, maintaining the lifts and upgrading old communal heating systems.
