New Liabilty of Property managers? by Jim on September 6, 2018 @09:21

                              
Can I get help with finding case law examples –
I am a landlord and a third party and don’t have any ownership interest in the rental properties. A judge is weighing on a decision regarding the property manager is …or is not…held liable to the Property owners/landlords decision regarding if they approve/deny repairs, decisions about lease termination, and so on.” Does anyone know of a case that I could use? As of right now, a “free legal for the tenants” is trying to make a law that says property managers are 100% liable for actions or inactions that landlord/property owners regarding approving/denying repairs. (I'm sure Many property managers here would really want to avoid this slippery slope issue)

Thanks,

Kassandra T

Do you have a written contract with the landlords? Most would have wording that would shift legal issues back to the property owner. If you don't have a good contract then that's your problem. However
Free legal can't make a law that immediately effect current issues.
