How selecting the wrong property manager in Baltimore almost cost our client his investment- A case study

Working With Another Property Manager in Baltimore had been going okay for our client Until…

the top floor apartment had a water leak. The apartment in was vacant, and a pipe burst during the day when the first-floor residents were not home. When they returned home from work that Friday evening, they found their apartment was flooded. The residents attempted to call the management company, and after several attempts couldn’t get through to anyone. So they were forced to leave a message and wait for a callback.  No one called back until Monday mid-afternoon; by then, it was too late; the damage had been done. By the time the water had been removed, the building was a disaster zone.

What happens now?

Our client was notified of the issue on Monday afternoon. After a trip to the property and some investigating with the residents, he decided that he needed to end the contract with that particular management company. Since he was not local and was having a hard time managing the contractors that were supposed to be completing the work on hiProperty Management in Baltimores property. He found HomeWorks and asked us to come out and assess the situation first hand.
