Management rights are range of discretion in managing an organization reserved for its management under most corporate legislation.

Management rights - elements[edit]

Traditional activities in the field of management rights consist of three basic elements:

  • Property ownership in the Community titles system (CTS) (which usually includes an office or right to (use the office).
  • Contract for the care of common property with a legal person (eg gardens, swimming pools, paths e.t.c.).
  • Authorization to rent lots for owners in the system as their rental agent along with the rental number dates from those owners who decide to let you through.

There are countless variants of the above. Some management laws do not include real estate, and some are taking care or only renting. Some have smaller or larger parts of each element, but standard management business law is that above.

People decide to invest in management rights for a number of reasons. They include return on investment, lifestyle choosing and adapting their home and business. Returns on business in the field of management rights are very much identifiable and repetitive, which gives many buyers who are new to the industry peace of mind that can not be found in many other business environments.The operation of a company management rights can be applied to all styles of real estate development, including traditional unit, townhouse, villa or resort style for newer innovations, such as rental of business premises, student apartments and retirement villages.

The purchase of a rights management company includes the right to obtain a resident renter (RLA) license. The license allows you to collect rent and manage real estate under the Community titles program in which office you have and is relatively easy to obtain.

Necessary educational requirements can be met through correspondence or participation in a course run by an accredited training institution. Management rights are still seen as an extremely secure investment proposition, but they remain very "human""concentrated" activities[1].

Management rights - specification[edit]

Management rights are regulated by law, as well as by the written terms of the agreement between the parties. The basic duty of the administrator is to represent the owner of the property outside in all matters regulated by the agreement. The administrator is also responsible for documentation concerning the property[2].

Property managers are obliged to ensure the operation of the property, as well as regular maintenance of the building, i.e. the provision of necessary periodic inspections and repairs. The role of the manager, also in the case of commercial property, is to present regular reports on the functioning of the property to its owner.

The scope of duties[edit]

The manager should first of all act in favour of the real estate being serviced and this principle should prevail in all areas of its activity.The scope of duties is regulated by an agreement between the parties, usually these are the areas concerning the budget, administration and lease of real estate.

The above principle of acting honestly for the benefit of the property, which the manager has at his disposal, also applies to undesirable actions on his part. It is unacceptable to act to the detriment of the property and its owner, to take decisions independently, which are not covered by the agreement. It also means concealing information about the property from its owner[3].The scope of duties of the property manager is governed by an agreement between the parties, as well as by the applicable law. The scope of duties of a commercial property manager is primarily property administration, portfolio management, i.e. optimization of property value.

The manager is also responsible for continuous tenant service, budgeting and reporting, as well as financial and accounting services for the property. The manager is usually also responsible for managing current projects and planning and implementation of marketing activities, i.e. promotion, gaining tenants and maintaining a positive image.
