Does not fit[edit]

Property maintenance does not fit in with Property management as this a description from a business point of view and not Property maintenance in general. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.44.202.3 (talkcontribs) 04:43, August 30, 2006

  • I disagree that the two cannot be married. Property maintenance is as much a business decision as it is an operational one. Aside from required maintenance issues, complaints from occupants tend to be only addressed based on the management interests of the owner or property manager. A High-end user group might garner much more consideration for requests or demands, whereas non-profits may suffer. At least, this has been my observation. - CobaltBlueTony 14:15, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
Although I can understand why these two areas are often grouped together, they are nonetheless 2 separate aspects of a very complex business. - jmcx 08:00, 16 September 2006
I can only speak for commercial property, but I believe that it is feasible to merge the Property Maintenance article into Property Management. Having said that, we seem to be overlooking the fact that the Property Maintenance article that we're proposing to merge is somewhat vague and does not cover several categories of property maintenance that are even more important than cleaning and repairs, among which I would include Refrigeration Systems, Air Handling, Water Treatment, Plumbing, Electrical/Lighting, and Energy Management. Again, these are the thoughts of a commercial high-rise property manager. conteaguero 12:43, 20 October 2006

Why merge?[edit]

If I'm not mistaken maintenance and management are two distinct words (maybe someone could look the meanings up in a dictionary) A property manager (and that does not have to be a person in the commercial sector but could also be the owner, occupier, tenant of a building) would carry out maintenance of that building either themselfs or call upon the services or others and therefore managing the property through maintenance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rodneymus (talkcontribs) 15:20, 1 November 2006
