File Clean-Up: Compliance UGH

OK. Everyday is not sunshine when working with affordable housing. Here’s a question that came in recently and we thought we should get the word out.

Question: We’ve added an existing Section 42/Section8 property to our management portfolio. The files are a mess. Who’s responsible to do file clean-up? Or can we just make sure files that we do are squeaky clean and forget about the old files? We didn’t cause the problem…the old management company did and we are not exactly excited about taking on what should have been their responsibility. UGH.
