Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Do you have a written agreement which requires property management company to collect rent and the to forward rent to you?
How often is the rent supposed to be forwarded to you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Each tenant forwards/mails the check each month to me. If the tenant fails to mail the check, I will call the property manager to follow-up on the late payments.
Expert:  Alex J. Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your follow up.Is there written agreement between you and the property management and does it state that property management is responsible for collecting rent late payments or to hire an attorney to pursue legal action against delinquent tenants?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will have to read the agreement/contract and get back to you.
