Mike Davis' rental house is in poor condition. The landlord is well aware the house needs repairs that she cannot afford. She rents the house to Mike and Candy because it's uninhabitable to most. It works well for Mike and Candy since rents in Alexandria average $1,800 for a two-bedrrom apartment, far more than their combined $850 SSI will cover.
