An Alabama property management agreement is a contract between a real estate owner and an individual or company hired to manage the premises. These agreements establish the responsibilities of the manager (leasing, evicting, maintaining, repairing, etc.), the amount of compensation they will receive, the obligations of the owner, the length of the arrangement, and other key provisions. A property management agreement can be used for residential, commercial, multi-family, or mixed-use types of properties.
