I recently moved into a new shared house. There is a property manager who is responsible for finding new tenants and has an individual lease with each person. He is not very fluent in English which has been a bit of a barrier. I think he is new to the job and signed up without knowing what he was getting into. Anyway, he often asks us when we will be home on a certain day. If we say we are out all day, then he just asks when will be at home and free. Often times he does this without making clear the purpose of the meeting. But usually it is to receive a delivery (like a new fridge), let in a maintenance worker or show a potential tenant a room that is coming available.
I work from home. If I am paid I am OK with this. If I am not paid then the property manager should be doing it as it is what he is paid to do.
How do I politely phrase this and remain on good terms with her?
I was thinking
Hello: I noticed you have been frequently asking for my help with maintenance and management of the house. I have written up a proposal where I would take up the responsibilities for pay of $xxx / month.
