Property Management-5 Essential Contract Clauses

Q: I don’t have the time to manage our property myself anymore so I’m thinking about hiring a company to do it. How should I protect myself? (5 clauses every property mgmt agreement must have) Jill, Little Rock, Arkansas
A: That’s a great question, Jill. The first thing you’ll need to protect yourself is a written agreement or contract between you and the company or individual that will manage your property. Here are 5 items every property management agreement must have 1. parties to the contract, 2. beginning date of service 3. roles & responsibilities, 4. payment terms and 5. termination clause
