concierge

What exactly is the concierge supposed to take care of at apartment buildings?

Re: concierge

It depends on what he/she is contracted to do. Sometimes just make sure there are no major issues, but often a few tasks or small jobs such as cleaning the common areas, making sure people follow the rules, gardening, and small maintenance issues. Also, being around with keys to let workers do repairs and the like is often included.

The only sure way to know is ask the concierge or the regie.

Re: concierge

As said above -just depends. Some have to the cleaning of the communal areas, take care of the garden and basic maintenance. Some do not- but just keep an eye on things, and ensure that all the tenants stick to the cleaning rosta, don't make too much noise or put prams in entrance, etc.
