Court cases are not new in property management. It could be because of an eviction, an appeal from previous tenants because of discrepancies, or just a simple misunderstanding. There is a lot of reasons why property managers can be part of a court case. But at the end of the day, the welfare of both tenants and landlords should be the #1 priority so if there are instances in which property managers are allowed to go into court cases, we will be present. Here are some occasions in which we do and do not go to court.

 

You need to decide for your property

First and foremost, you need to make a decision on how your property is held. If it is held in an LLC (Limited Liability Company) unfortunately, a property manager, unless there is an attorney, can’t go to court for you. That means you’re going to have to hire a third-party attorney. Luckily, we have some great tenant-landlord attorneys that work with us.

 

Property managers can represent you in some cases

 

If your property is not held in an LLC, a property manager can represent you. This again allows you significant savings. And because of the fact that we know everything going on with the unit and the issue in the property, we’ll be able to solve it much more quickly and much more affordably than if an attorney had to do so.

 

If you or anyone else, you know is looking for a proactive property manager, please think of Green Ocean Property Management, where you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
