Shabbos and real estate investing


I actively invest in  syndicated multifamily real estate deals. I have found a lack of awareness and sensitivity to the potential issues of real estate management regarding shabbos operation.
Could you please clarify what areas need to be considered by the management, and if an individual investor has a responsibility to ensure that management is running things according to halacha.
Thank you




Owning and managing real estate can pose a number of Shabbos issues, such as having gentile workers work for you on Shabbos, Shabbos earnings, having a partnership with a gentile in a business on Shabbos. I would suggest that you buy the Sefer Commerce and Shabbos by Rabbi Yosef Kuschner and read Part 1 Chapters1,3 Part 2 Chapters 2,3,8,11,12.

Best wishes
