One important role of a property manager is that of liaison between the landlord and the tenant. Duties of property management include accepting rent, responding to and addressing maintenance issues, advertising vacancies, and doing credit and background checks on tenants.

In exchange for the service provided, property managers charge landlords a monthly fee.   A fee is also secured for locating a tenant.   Property managers may also manage construction, development, repair and maintenance on a property for a fee.

Property manager relations with tenants gives a face to the landlord and provides a buffer for those landlords desiring to distance themselves from their tenant.
