What should I know about being an apartment manager in California?

My girlfriend and I have been approached by the current manager with the offer to take over when he and his wife leave. He doesn't seem to have many responsibilities beyond collecting the rent checks. (the maintenance man seems to handle everything else independently)
So, assuming that neither my girlfriend nor I have any experience in the field, what do I need to know, O Hivemind? What advice can you offer?
This question is deliberately vague because, frankly, I don't know what questions to start with.
