This is a new one for me...... I just received a request form a large property management company that manages comm'l, hospitality, and multi-unit residential properties to give bids on '09-'10 winter maintenance and 2010 summer maintenance. The thing that concerns me is when they sent me their property rooster, along with it was there own contract and terms. I have dealt with management companies before but this is the first time I had a prospective customer lay down the ground rules. My initial reaction is that this management company doesn't "fit" the type of client we wish to have a working relationship with, but the optimistic side of me hates to turn my back and possible leave revenue on the table, as I'm sure many of you have been put in a situation similar to this. I have never before agreed to anyone else's contract/terms and don't think I should start now. Anyone who has dealt with this type of situation, your opinion is greatly appreciated, for those of you who want to throw your .02 in, your more then welcome to as well. Thanks in advance!
