or Property Manager Duties
is a webpage for the Landlord or Property Manager - "the property
manager" - managing a property on a unit titled development. Because
of its Unit Titled Development status, there are additional requirements
and tasks that the Body Corporate requires of the property manager to
be complied with, prior to the time the apartment is occupied. These requirements
are for ensuring social expectations are understood as tenants will be
living with others in the community - these expectations are identified
in the Body Corporate Operational Rules (or the Body Corporate Rules),
Residents Guidelines and Policies - and they all need to be complied with.
the property manager managing a tenancy in the Endeavour Apartments,
you are initially responsible for good tenant selection and then setting
the right behavioural expectations of them whilst they reside there. In
the event of apartment issues occurring - whether material or social,
these will be promptly and effectively dealt with by the proiperty manager

Knowledge of the Property Managed
is the responsibility of the property manager to ensure that they are
100% familiar with the layout and functionality of all aspects of the
apartment they manage, the location of its associated car parks and the
location of communal service areas of the Endeavour Apartments
complex. Where owners are unable to provide this information, a good professional
manager will quickly be able collate that information.
Corporate Collateral as part of Tenancy Agreements
the property manager, there is a responsibility and duty to ensure that
the Body Corporate Rules, Residential Guidelines and Policies are communicated
to, and understood, by your tenants at the time of signing of their
tenancy agreement. As required by the current Residential
Tenancy Amendment Act 2010, the Body Corporate Operational Rules form

to it. It is not acceptable for any property manager to simply pass the
URL of the Endeavour Apartments website to tenants to satisfy
their property management obligations of the Body Corporate; that is ensuring
that the Body Corporate Operational Rules, Residential Guidelines &
the Policies have been received and understood by the incoming tenants.
to tenants having been issued with copies of rules, guidelines & policies,
please ensure the URL of the Endeavour Apartments website is
also passed on to them for their future reference.
For the property
manager, the Body Corporate has a pro-forma
letter that needs to be signed by both the property manager and all
of the resident tenants prior to occupation of the residential tenancy;
this confirms to the Body Corporate that the tenant/s have a copy of necessary
body corporate documents, that they have been properly inducted to the
apartment and to the apartment complex. If this is not done, the task
may be undertaken by Body Corporate Management at the cost of the owner.
