POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Managers of rental apartments, office buildings, facilities and commercial real estate, as well as condominium and homeowners associations, recognize the horrendous liabilities associated with hiring unlicensed or uninsured contractors. Property Manager Pages is a property manager resource for finding contractors and for confirming status of those companies' licenses and workers' compensation insurance.
"Our 'Vendor FAQ' section gives candid advice and state-specific information to people that are hiring contractors," said Steve Hirsch, CEO of Property Manager Pages. "Though we display contractors' insurance levels as of the dates that documentation was verified to us, there is only one sure way to know that license and insurance are current - you need to verify these facts at point of hire," Hirsch stated. "Hand-in-hand with our mission to educate about the importance of checking license and insurance status at point of hire is to make it easy to do this," said Jon Booz, Director of Operations.
The company blog reports on various issues relevant to property owners, managers and landlords. Topics include community association and landlord-tenant law, current issues like bedbug control and the foreclosure epidemic as well as seminars and trade shows for the industry.
The blog also reports about the many horror stories resulting from hiring unlicensed and uninsured contractors. Property damage, workers' compensation claims, expensive legal fees, code enforcement issues and rejected claims are among the consequences of dealing with unlicensed or uninsured contractors. Information is relevant to decision makers across the United States.
State specific information and vendors are viewable for Florida, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and the Washington Metropolitan area.
