Property Management Company

A property management company is set up to manage the shared or common areas of a building or development in which a number of separate property owners (most commonly but not exclusively residential properties) live. 

Often the separate property owners will own the units and to manage the shared areas (such as the lifts, stairs, roof, exterior, corridors, landscaped areas, car parks and so on) a management company will be set up.

Property management company handovers
Usually, the management company will be set up and owned by the property developer. On sale of the last property in the development, the property developer can instruct Herrington Carmichael to ‘handover’ the management company to the property owners as the developer should not have a say in the running of the management company once all properties have been sold.

How to set up a property management company
Sometimes management companies are set up later by property owners to manage an area of land that they become responsible for at a later date. Speak to our team if you would like guidance on how to do this.
