Property Manager Training
A property manager is a person or firm who operate a real estate property for a fee often on behalf of a landlord. The property manager will commonly assist with services which include:
- Meeting an owner's investment objectives
- Maintaining detailed tenancy records
- Ensuring lease terms are complied with
- Tenant liaison on a day-to-day basis
- Meeting statutory obligations
- Operating property on a sustainable basis
A qualification isn’t necessary, but it can help your application stand out. A relevant qualification can show recruiters that you are serious about the profession. Plus it will equip you with a certain level of knowledge that the non-qualified competition won’t possess. It can also help you advance once you’ve secured that first job, as clients will certainly be looking – at the very least – for membership of ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents).
Never fear if you’re changing career or have only just realised that property management is your passion – there are plenty of opportunities to boost that CV or to strengthen your knowledge of the industry while on the job. Some employers may include the chance to study for a qualification as part of the job offer.
These are likely to be courses that have been designed by ARLA and the NFoPP (National Federation of Property Professionals.)
