I am a little apprehensive about taking this commercial job. It would be my first time working for an apartment complex and dealing with a 3rd party property management company and not the owner of a property. I am required to sign a document stating the property management company is not liable for any payment, that any payments from them are as representatives of the owner, which of course I understand that they dont want me to sue them if I have trouble getting paid. This is a one time leaf removal job, otherwise I would give them a standard yearly contract I am trying to figure out the best way to protect myself legally, so my question is what kind of document and what should that document say to have the property management company sign in order to best protect myself? A couple things that came to mind to have in there are the actual owner of the property's name, and a signature stating that the person hiring me to do the work does indeed have the authority to hire me on behalf of the owner. Any thoughts? This pm oversees 4 propertys and his company has atleast 20 in me area so it would could be a good foot in the door if it is a good business decision.
