Condo management can be a difficult job. It involves negotiating the needs of property owners, making sure all the communal areas are clean, collecting condo association fees, and keeping track of finances. The condo management team is responsible for dealing with the overall maintenance of the condo building as well as any day-to-day issues that may arise. Here are some of the most common problems that a condo management team will encounter.
Most condo owners have a strong neighbourly relationship with the other people who live in their building. However, living in close proximity to other people means that there is a chance that conflicts between neighbours may arise. If you have an issue with another condo resident, your property manager can help. If you’re experiencing issues with a noisy neighbour, for instance, your property manager will be able to sort out any dispute to find a resolution that is fair for everyone. It’s important that every condo resident be respectful to the other occupants, who may include families or people with hectic work schedules. A property manager will be able to mediate any conflict so everyone in the condo can live comfortably.
Common Area Issues
The property manager is also responsible for the upkeep on the condo’s communal areas, which includes the lobby, elevator, parking garage, and any courtyards, gyms or event spaces in the building. The common areas can become littered with garbage if residents aren’t properly disposing of their trash. Property managers ensure that residents are putting their garbage in the designated area and not throwing debris like cigarette butts over the sides of their balconies. If there’s an issue with the cleanliness in the communal spaces of your condo, contact your property manager to have the issue dealt with fast and effectively.
