Community Association Management Contract Requirement

T.W. from outside of Connecticut writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

Does a manager of a very large condo building need a contract, as to her responsibility, salary etc.? Does the manager need a contract of duties and responsibilities?

Mister Condo replies:

T.W., managers are hired by associations to conduct the day-to-day business of the association, which include a myriad of tasks and responsibilities, there is usually a contract between the association and the manager or the management company that details the work and compensation for the work. If an association hires a manager without such an agreement, it really isn’t practicing good business practices, in my opinion. That wouldn’t be the manager’s fault. That would be the fault of the association. I am not aware of any legal requirement for such a contract but I can’t imagine hiring any person or company without such a document. All the best!
