A property management company must ensure that residents uphold the lease terms. If not, there must be a written plan in place to remedy the problem. That could mean charging the resident, or it could mean eviction. Thick skin is a requirement, as the property manager's primary job is to protect the property. If the management company can not or will not do that, you need to terminate your contract with them.
