What's the purpose of a routine inspection?

A Routine Inspection is a visual inspection that your Property Manager carries out at your property to ensure the tenants are complying with their lease and maintaining the property in a ‘reasonably’ clean condition and undamaged state.

Tenants are requested to provide details about any maintenance they believe is required thereby ensuring that maintenance is attended to and your property remains in a state of good repair. Your property manager will also look for any current and / or future recommendations such as the carpet replacement, painting or tiling that may need updating in the future.

Routine Inspections are a great opportunity to assess the property for an up to date rental appraisal and, based on comparable market review, a rental increase may be recommended along with a lease renewal option. For tenants a routine inspection is a great opportunity for them to raise any questions they may have and discuss their future plans at the property.

A Routine Inspection is purely a visual inspection of the premises. Property Managers are not licensed builders and are unable to advise on any structural defects, however if any of our investors do require a more thorough assessment of their property we can certainly assist in organising a building inspector to attend and provide a report.

Our property managers are here to discuss any queries you may have about Routine Inspections, and invite all of our landlords to attend scheduled inspections of their properties. Along with this, we provide a very detailed report on the outcome to ensure you are updated with the tenancy and upkeep of the property.
