Hire a tenant to act as resident manager of your rental building with this California Resident Manager Agreement.
- Under California Code of Regulations Title 25, Article 5, Section 42, any building with 16 or more units is required to have a resident manager.
- The resident manager will be paid a salary, a portion of which will be paid by reduced rent on a rental unit to be occupied by the manager as a condition of employment.
- The resident manager's duties can be as broad or as narrow as the building owner requires. Typically the manager would collect the rent, issue receipts, serve 3-day, 30-day and 60-day notices, provide cleaning and maintenance services, and show empty units to prospective tenants.
- The manager's unit will be subject to the same rental increases as the other rental units.
- The resident manager's right to occupy the unit will terminate when the employment ends. The contract template includes an optional provision for the manager to stay on as a tenant, at the option of the landlord.
