When a unit needs repairs or renovations are needed, the manager will hire contractors and oversee the work. They also collect rent and initiate the eviction process.

Ames Property Management Fees

Property manager may sometimes ask for a flat monthly fee, but they almost always charge a percentage of the gross rent collected from all rental units. A larger leasing fee is often taken from the first rental payment collected from all new tenants. This fee can go up to 100 percent of the new tenant’s first rental payment.
