物业管理英语第二讲:Properties Requiring Management

2006-07-29 09:42

  The level of management a property needs increases with the level of services and with the frequency that tenants turn over. Some examples of ddifferent managerial responsibilities and problems follow, organized by type of space. To the extent that property management involves tenant relations, residential properties present the greatest challenge. The space leased by the residential tenant is “home”, where the tenant and other family members spend a substantial amount of their free time and the rent for which may represent the tenant's largest single financial obligation. Consequently, the residential tenant expects a well-run property, with services and utilities available as promised at rents kept as low as possible (among other reasons, because residential rentals are not tax deductible as are business rentals)。 On the other side of the coin, one or two bad tenants in a project can be a continuing source of vexation to the property manager and to the other tenants.

  The relatively short term of a residential lease means that the property manager is under continual pressure to maintain a high renewal rate in order to avoid vacated units that must be repainted, repaired, and re-leased in as short a time as possible. A property that is theoretically fully rented may, nevertheless, lose a substantial amount of rental income if turnover is very high and more than a few weeks elapse before each new tenant moves in.

  Among the types of residential properties are (1) apartments, (2) condominiums and cooperatives, and (3) single-family homes.

  The personal relationship between manger and tenant can be crucial to maintaining high occupancy. Turnover of tenants results in higher operating expenses and lower rentals collected. Asking fair rents and responding to tenants'needs (e. g., maintenance and repairs) are often the most important variables in successful apartment management.

  The least involved homes. The owner may have moved rental of single-family homes. The owner may have moved away for business or other reasons with the intention of returning at a later date to occupy the house or may be holding the property as an investments. In either case, the owner retains a local agent to collect rent, pay real estate taxes and debt service,and handle any problems that may arise. This type of management is frequently performed by real estate brokers, who charge a fee equal to a percentage of each month's rent.

  Notes:

  1. ……with the level of services and with the frequency that tenants turn over.此句中,两个with引导两个伴随状语意为“随着”。例如:

  2. by type of space 依据空间种类

  3. …where the tenant and other family members spend a substantial amount of their free time and the rent or which may represent the tenant's largest single financial obligation.

  此句中,关系副词where引导一个非限定性的定语从句,修饰home一词。而且在该从句中还含有一个定语从句,由关系代词which充当介词for的宾语,其先行词是rent,该词由定语从句for which may represent the tenant's largest single financial obligation修饰。

  4. a well-run property 经营得好的物业

  5. … with services and utilities available…在此短语中available作后置定语,意为“可以得到的服务设施”。

  6. as low as possible 尽可能低

  7. …because residential rentals are not tax deductible as are business rentals…

  在此句中,as 承接前面的句子,意为“像……一样”,as引导的从句主谓倒装。例如:

  He plays football, as does his uncle. 他和他叔叔一样会踢足球。

  8. on the other side of the coin 就另一方面而言

  9. under continual pressure 处于不断的压力之下

  10. high occupancy 指房屋的出租率高。出租率高,意味着物业管理好,它会给业主带来丰厚的回报。
