Learning Objectives:
This class is designed to help you outline and write a Residential Property Management Policy and Procedures book for your office or business. Regardless of whether you are on your own or are a part of a large organization, Policies and Procedures will provide consistency and minimize liability. As an example, Fair Housing requires that we treat each applicant equally. Your P&P will be just one of the tools you use to meet that requirement – and to prove to investigators that you subscribe to the Fair Housing dictates in your area.

Several handouts will be provided to use as an example when updating your current P&P manual or when creating one. This class will provide an overview as well as some specifics of Trust Accounting. Each of the other Designation classes covers a different section of the P&P in detail.

It is intended for you to take the outline from this class and then expand it as you take the other classes. One of the requirements of obtaining a CRMC® Designation for your company is to have a P&P manual. In fact, much of the interview and auditing process is based on this piece of documentation.

By taking this class, you are well on your way to creating the office environment needed for your business to be more consistent and potentially successful as well as to be eligible to be awarded the Certified Residential Management Company designation upon application.
