Expert Witness Testimony
Whether or not you are representing the Defendant or the Plaintiff, Mr. Meer provides the utmost objective opinion, based on his experience and expertise in the professional matters of Property Management.
- Standards of care for management of both residential and commercial properties
- Liability issues arising from tenants/visitors/workmen at a given residential or commercial property
- Health and safety issues arising from tenants/visitors/workmen at a given residential or commercial property.
Is residential /commercial property management the same throughout the United States?
The answer to this question is both “yes” and “no.” The basic Policies and Procedures of property management are consistent across the country. Even with this consistency, there are some regional differences in the application of the polices.
Mr. Meer is well versed in the following issues:
- The coastal waters physical impact on structures.
- In the southeastern United States, termites are a serious problem.
- In ski resort areas “roof ice dams” create a potential hazard.
- In Colorado the thawing of ice during warm winter days may well return to ice that night as the temperatures drop below freezing.
- In a commercial building with restaurants or water features, there is the potential for slip and fall issues in the common areas.
- In an apartment laundry area there may be a potential natural gas leak. Carbon monoxide dangers may occur in many different states.
Given all of the above, residential/commercial Policies and Procedures should be modified to adjust to area specific conditions.
Mr. Meer is fully cognitive of these regional differences. Having been a property manager for the last 34 years he has dealt with all of the above issues. He continues to update his knowledge through membership in the National Association of Residential Property Managers and the National Apartment Association.
His attendance at educational sessions for both of these professional groups ensures his continued and expanding knowledge base. Additionally, his hands-on experience in apartment and home owner association management provides an additional foundation for his expert opinions.
