Hiring a Property Management Company

A meeting with 4 attendees referring to documents with graphs and charts

Let’s assume that your board has decided that hiring a property management company is the best way to look after the day-to-day work of managing your co-op.

Your co-op will want to choose a property-management company through a Request for Proposals (RFP). Our Guide to Hiring Property Management Services through a Request for Proposals will lead you through the process step by step. It provides a timetable for your co-op to follow and a complete set of forms to use. These include a summary of your co-op’s requirements, instructions for preparing an RFP, a proposal form for bidders to fill out, and a checklist that you can use to assess each proposal

Our guide also refers you to other places where you can find information, such as CHF Canada’s Resource Centre.
