Niche question for multifamily specialists - from your perspective, how common are kickbacks from Vendors?
Put another way, if a Vendor was trying to sell a service to a Property, is there a history of the Vendor offering the Property Manager cash (under the table) for the Property to try out the service?
This is a difficult question because I expect most of the people on this forum are NOT from boots-on-the-ground management background, but rather Asset Managers. As such, I doubt Property Managers have any interest in discussing it, even if it did occur.
