Receiverships

If you are in need of a receiver for your property, we are able to act quickly to provide bonding, get operating systems in place and produce all reports required by the court and other parties involved. Our fees are reasonable and do not vary from those we quote on conventional management contracts. Past receiving properties have included apartments, commercial buildings, storage facilities and artists’ studios.
 
 
Tax Appeals
 
We prepare tax appeals on behalf of property owners who believe their assessments are out of line. All necessary paperwork is filed with the board of review and sessions are attended in person to clarify points made and answer questions. Fees are based on a percentage of the tax savings calculated, with current millage rates and a small initial payment for set-up.
 
 
Consulting
 
Our consulting services include:
  • Acting as an expert witness in court cases involving property management issues
  • Reviewing current management procedures and mailing recommendations for changes and implementation
  • Developing management plans for proposed properties
  • Preparing reserve studies for homeowner associations
Fees for receivership's, tax appeals and consulting services are charged at an hourly rate, based upon the complexity of the assignment.
