Hotel and motel owners often determine that their limited time and resources require the employment of an external manager to maximize the profitability of a property. This is particularly the case when a family business decides to extend its property on one or two properties in order to cover several sites of different income. Management agreements come in all forms and sizes, but the issues you need to focus on as an owner remain constant. This article analyzes these issues and examines the pros and cons of negotiating an external management agreement. Most of the benefits of a management contract are related to saving time so that the business runs smoothly and that knowledge and experience are integrated into a business function. When an entity issues operational control of a function, it no longer has to worry about that function. The company can now focus on the most important industries. The most fundamental element of the control that an owner will have is the right to approve the budget for the operation of the hotel. The owner should maintain strict control over the budget process and expenses should be made in such a way that they are budgeted as soon as they have been approved by the owner. If, for any reason, the owner and the management company fail to agree on a budget (which should be at least annual) within a reasonable time after their submission, the parties should agree to a diversion and terminate the contract.
The management company will often attempt to negotiate some sort of liquidated compensation in the event of termination after a budget is not agreed. The owner may object, perhaps the feeling that the management company could arbitrarily propose a much higher budget than necessary, knowing that the owner will not approve it. In this case, the management company is dismissed and is entitled to damages. Ultimately, the parties must agree to work in good faith for a mutually acceptable budget and believe that each will act in a partisan manner during the budget process. There are also management contracts that apply to the entertainment and sports industry. Athletes and artists often have to hire a management company to handle things like notes, book sponsorships, public relations, personal finance and other aspects of their lives. In the meantime, athletes and artists can focus on the heart of their career, which is to perform at their peak. Under such contracts, the royalty is generally linked to the annual income of the artist or athlete that the management company seeks to improve.
