The purpose of the Property Management course is to provide the student with an overview of property management. This course includes detailed discussions of the role of the property manager, landlord policies, operational guidelines, leases, lease negotiations, tenant relations, maintenance, reports, habitability laws, and the Fair Housing Act.
The course is not directed toward a specialized student population. Rather, it is intended for those who may, in the future, pursue a variety of specialties such as residential management, commercial management, or even operation of their own property management firm. Recognizing that specialization is not possible without the basics, this course provides the basics necessary to begin the learning process.
