leased properties sometimes have a tendency to overlook the way their space is being main- tained by the tenant, but this can come back to haunt them in the future. Net leased buildings place a lot of regular maintenance responsibilities on the tenant’s plate—things that are tradi- tionally the responsibility of the landlord or owner in other buildings. In these scenarios, the property management team needs to be much more hands- on and proactive on behalf of the landlords. An effective property management team for

these types of properties must work harder and smarter to make sure each lessee is per- forming all their obligations. To save owners time and money, the best property man- agers send a team to every property on a monthly basis to ensure each and every ten- ant is maintaining its space in accordance to the lease and to the satisfaction of the building owner. And, because all leases are unique, they need to be carefully monitored. Monthly inspections, review of lease obligations, maintenance and insurance policies need to be monitored on a continual basis. The best property managers will offer tips to reduce energy use and costs through things such as lighting upgrades, alternate energy sources and recycled materials. When these issues are targeted on a fre- quent basis, the end result is a win-win situation for all involved. In single-tenanted buildings, one of the most common mis- takes of building owners is not monitoring the maintenance of the HVAC systems as well as the roofs, gutters, drains and downspouts. What owners do not realize is that when the ten- ants are responsible for paying for repairs to these items, they do not always maintain them properly. In every property management assignment we undertake, the first thing we do is inspect the HVAC, roof, gutters, drains and downspouts to make sure they are all func- tioning properly. Making sure these systems are maintained properly avoids the owner having to replace them in the long run. Another great advantage with a local property manager is that many local vendors are used for repairs, maintenance and tenant improvement work resulting in faster and less ex- pense for the property.
