10 Questions a Landlord Should Ask When Interviewing Management Companies

Finding a reputable property management company can be quite daunting as it is difficult to really know how well the company is run. We have put together a list of items you should ask when interviewing a potential property management company.

1. How long have they been in business?

You want to associate yourself with an established company, as this speaks to a company’s length of service in the community.

2. Do they manage other assets in your area?

A property management company should have a presence in your local area, managing properties that are in the same asset class as your property. For example, if you own an apartment building in West LA, you should look for companies that manage apartments in West LA. The properties they manage may be available on the webpage, if not, ask this question while interviewing them in your initial conversation over the phone.

3. Are they carrying the proper insurance coverages?

The company should at a minimum carry general liability and workers compensation for their business. In addition, it is always wise to look for a company that also carries Errors and Omissions insurance.
