    Default Owners sacked by Property Managers.

    This is meant to be serious please and not directed at any person/s in particular.

    Are there any property managers out there who have cancelled a contract with a client or who have refused to take on a particular client because that client is a pain?

    Not a PM but have heard plenty of stories. I am guesing it would be one of those jobs were certain problem clients/buildings take up most of the time

    Don't property managers charge by the hour these days?

    Been sacked several times, xris, but not from a position as a property manager.

    Yes me! Long and involved story where the PM's were also friends. I should probably have terminated earlier because of other things I wasn't happy with. The final straw for them was a long list of 'issues' I had with the way they had handled the final drama where they had allowed a tenant to run down a house quite dramatically over only a few months - tenant gone bad scenario. The house remained vacant for weeks when I was overseas and when I returned it was obvious why. They decided to terminate our business relationship rather than remedy the problems. They cost me more in vacancies and repairs over several months than I'd lost managing everything myself in the previous 4.5 years.

    Believe it or not I have only done it once although I have parted company in none too pleasant circumstances more than once.
    Often this has related to the way an owner wanted to treat / claim from a tenant versus the way either I or the court thought was the correct thing to do. It is really easy to blame the PM or the tribunal when things go bad.

    Several years ago I had an old owner who had I think lost something along the way.
    I had a wonderful tenant in his little house. She had a serious medical condition. He wrote to her suggesting that she might break the steps that he had put in and also made some other rather inappropiate sexual comments over a period of time. That was just too much for me to take and I told him to take his property and get on his bike.

    I've never been sacked, or sacked any pm.

    During the last downturn a pm that I was using said they didn't want to take on one of my properties because it was in a so called less than good area and they were consolidating; this isn't quite being sacked I suppose.

    I have taken over from a pm before which again wasn't really sacking them, I just decided to do it myself for a while. It was taken as a sacking though because in a way it was; if the management had been better I probably would have left things as they were.

    I have come across some shocking owners though and I really wonder why some pm's put up with them.

    You said:

    The jury is out.

    Hello TT,

    I'm glad you found it amusing even though you have misread the post.

    First I wore the hat of a pm; second I wore the hat of an owner.

    Confusing I know.
