Solicitors dealing with property management can find themselves in a variety of negotiation or dispute situations:

  • Preparation of a detailed schedule of duties for inclusion in a new agreement.
  • Extension of an agreement requiring an updated schedule of duties.
  • An agreement for a particular complex providing for a review of manager/caretaker remuneration.
  • Renewal of an agreement.
  • A disagreement between the manager or management company and a body corporate.

In these and other circumstances, BMCS’s professional services can be of great assistance, including:

  • Assistance in determining remuneration payable to resident managers/caretakers.
  • Market reviews on behalf of clients.
  • Independent advice in regards to dispute resolution between bodies corporate/owners corporations and resident managers/caretakers relating to duties and remuneration.
  • Development of schedules of duties that are specific to the particular building/complex for inclusion in management agreements.
  • Review duty schedules in current agreements and provide advice.

Our approach is to carry out a rigorous time and motion study and provide a detailed analysis of the building or complex, resulting in balanced, fact-based recommendations and advice on duties and remuneration for the manager/caretaker role and therefore supporting you in creating resolution between parties.
