Overlooked building security?
Sun Mar 21, 2010 11:36

While most buildings have open houses on a frequent basis I do have a concern regarding the property I live in. What/if any, policy can one put in place regarding brokers and open houses as my concern is that they have readily access/perform a walk through of all areas of our building,(storage areas, swimming pool, gym etc). While I do understand potential purchasers need to see these areas how can we make sure the areas are not being "cased out" so to speak. How can we protect ourselves as a Coop.

      This is no doorman building. We get management to bring in security during the hours of open house. All sign in and the seller has to pay the Co Op for this service.
