Being the household supervisor, I have more to do than just making sure all the apartments were filled, and the rent was coming in.
I had to make sure empty apartments were scrubbed and repaired before new occupants moved in.
I had a family living in the same household for almost ten years, when they planned to move into a house. I was going to miss them because they were nice people, however I had a job to do. There is a lot of normal wear and tear when the family lives there for such a long time, however carpets need to be replaced. Walls need to be repaired and repainted. Some of the appliances are worn after that amount of time, and need to be replaced. My associate and I had to inspect the HVAC system, the plumbing, and the electrical. I had to hire a company to do household remodel services. It was an enormous expense, but it wasn’t anything the occupant had done. It was normal wear and tear, and I couldn’t rent it out before we made the repairs. If the occupant had damaged walls deliberately, broken doors or windows, I would hold them liable for those repairs, but these were those kinds of occupants. They were all stuck living in the household until they could afford to buy a home. Apartment remodel services are one thing the household supervisor deals with. Normally, we would have household remodel services as part of our team, but the household remodel services we used to use went out of business during the pandemic. I now had to find another household remodel repair that would be ready to work when we called, and do the job at a price my proprietor would accept, and it had to be done well.
