Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. If I have not Answered your question, please let me know and I will be glad to explain further,
If you had a contract with a property management company under which they collected rent from your tenant or tenants and forwarded the rent to you, then part of their responsibility in connection with collecting the rent would be to send written notices to tenants who are late in paying their rent and to include in such notices any late fees provided for in the lease. The property management company has an affirmative responsibility to you to pursue a tenant who has not paid the rent.
However, whether or not the property management company would also be required to file lawsuits for the collection of rent would depend on the language in the contract you had with them and if that responsibility was specifically stated in the contract.
It should, however, be made clear to the new owner that any rent that was due and payable before the date of settlement belongs to you and any rent they collect which is attributable to a period prior to settlement should be forwarded to you,
