The individual who creates a property in Portfolio Manager is the "owner" of this property. This person, who we call the "Property Data Administrator" (PDA), owns and retains all rights associated with property data. EPA can only transfer ownership of a property to you if we have the PDA's permission, unless you are employed by the same company as the PDA.
If you don't know who the PDA is for the property you want transferred: Contact EPA for assistance: include the name and address of the property, and the Portfolio Manager Property ID if you know it. We can help you identify the property and the PDA.
Once we have the PDA's permission (an email approval is sufficient), EPA can do the actual transfer on behalf of the PDA.
Unfortunately, if we are unable to contact the PDA or their previous organization (if they are no longer with the company), you will have to create a new property and begin benchmarking from this point forward.
