Living with Management Companies -Public Meeting with Joan Burton and Aidan Culhane-22nd Sept 2010 September 18, 2010

Thought this of interest, a flyer for a meeting organised by Labour Councillor Aidan Culhane, with amongst others Joan Burton speaking, on how to deal with Management companies.
Ten years ago few of us had any dealings with them but the upsurge in Management companies was a side effect of the property boom. Most new Estates and Apartment Blocks rather than have the council maintain them had Management Companies. Indeed often (if not always) the first years management fee had to be paid when buying a property. Often Management Companies were set up by the developers so they made on the double.
As times have got harder its another bill that in the current climate is often back of the queue for paying, so in some developments less than 50% of homeowners would have paid.
There is also a problem that in some contracts, you cannot sell unless the management fees are up to date.
Might be an interesting talk.
Many thanks to the sender.
