I vaguely recall this being the status quo in WA despite it's absurdity, is this normal? Suggested management agreement contract landed on my desk. In it the property manager has cheekily inserted a clause to take 50% of their forecast property management fees for the life of the contract (upto 2 years) even if I sack them for failing to perform their duties/incompetence. So, they suggest you sign a contract (preferably for two years) and one month in they could be duds and I boot them. Under the contract they are entitled to 50% of the management fees for the next 23 months! This is absurd.
