Dealing With Management Issues

The function of the board is to oversee cooperative operations and take a proactive role in the creation of a successful community. Part of this endeavor involves working effectively with management agents.

At Pentiuk, Couvreur & Kobiljak, P.C., we strive to favorably resolve any issues that arise and help you develop solutions that will guard against future conflict. After all, the hire, evaluation and termination of a management agent are some of the most important tasks a board will ever carry out.

Developing a Positive Relationship With Management Agents

Management companies look after matters from lawn care to mortgage payments. That means their proper use is critical to a cooperative's overall health. When the board's directives are not clear or the management agent fails to adhere to his or her responsibilities, the community can suffer a crippling blow.

At our firm, we make sure the appropriate protections are in place so that you can avoid dispute and emerge successfully from discord. Our knowledgeable attorneys have more than a century of combined experience, and are well prepared to assist you with any number of matters, including:

  • Termination of a contractual relationship
  • Contract review and critique
  • Formulation of a legal or litigation strategy
  • Performance evaluations
  • Contract negotiations

Contact our Nationwide Housing Cooperative Legal Team

Many times, boards do not remember that management professionals are subordinate personnel. Agents may provide counsel, but should not be allowed to dictate cooperative operations.
