You could give them a separation notice.
I may getting a little to comfortable walking away from business this year. Used a thirty day notice to terminate a large townhome association contract this morning. Like many of these associations, price and expectations were way out of wack and raising prices only raised expectations.

You gotta know when to fold 'em
You gotta know when to walk away and when to RUN!!!!!!

Was actually at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and Don Shlitz, the guy that wrote the song came in and sang "The Gambler", he was dressed in T-shirt and jeans, drove off in a 300k sports car - you got to know when to hold em!

We have kept two of them vs having 15-20 separate ones in the past. We keep the two because they are full service and most residents use us for enhancement work - they are demanding, but willing to pay for it.
