Is this a residential property? As a lender for residential properties, I have not seen this request from lender before, causing me to ask what type of property it is. Thanks for posting the question, it will be interesting to see what other answers you get.
You can get rid of the property management company in a year, writing them off as your expense.
You can also learn from them - so that you gain the experience you need for the future.
Hope this helps,

I know some lenders won't even lend if you're not an experienced investor (actually, they will if you put down more downpayment - there's always a catch).
