I'm sure that this has probably been suggested before, but my recent experience, coupled with many stories here of outright incompetence, leads me to ask about this. Why don't we have a sticky for each state where people can "out" bad PMs? I have one exceptionally good PM, so I am not a "PM Basher" as a rule. HOWEVER, the level of incompetence I have encountered with another one beggars belief. I do not want to think that any fellow forumites would inadvertantly enlist the services of this agency and entrust them with their asset & business. When I searched last week to find their fax number I discovered a whole website run by a former tenant. This blog has comments from other tenant "victims" of this PM. What the?? If only I had known about it earlier. There is a blacklist tenant database, but a bad PM could cause you at least as much loss. What I am suggesting is that posts would state the agency,particular PM & suburb. Then the issues you have experienced in point form. It may be that others do not see those issues as major & decide to use that PM. At least their decision will be an informed one. There are no legal reasons why this could not be done, and stating your experience is not defamatory - as long as you stay away from including hearsay. It is also not defamatory to give your opinion, no matter how negative, as long as you state that it is your opinion. That's why the aforementioned PM cannot close down the whistleblower's website. Once I extricate myself from them I am happy to start the ball rolling on the Vic list. Mods, this would be a valid & infinitely useful resource between PIs. Members of other professions / communities are able to communicate this info & we should be able to as well.
