What Types of Properties may Employ a Property Manager?

  • Commercial office buildings
  • A residential tower block

  • A shopping mall

  • A large residential estate

  • A holiday resort complex

  • A factory complex or industrial estate

  • A sporting or recreation complex

  • Any other type of large scale property that requires a person to care for that property on a daily basis

What does a property manager do?
It depends on the property. Some property managers may be only responsible for the maintenance of a property; but others may be responsible for development or redevelopment projects and controlling at least some aspects of the use.

Property managers are commonly employed by the properties owner, which may be an individual, a company, or a group of individuals operating as a body corporate, overseen by an elected committee.  The responsibilities may be diverse, for example:

Maintaining services within and the structure of buildings (eg. power supply, water supply, air conditioning, heating, plumbing, etc).

The manager may have permanent staff or contractors to oversee for cleaning, maintaining indoor plants and exterior gardens, replacing light bulbs, repairing damage to walls, windows, doors etc. They do not need to be a tradesman, but an understanding of the work a tradesman does is important, and any trades skills they may have can be an advantage.

Issues of safety (e.g. fire drills, maintaining security and safety equipment)
