When it comes to routine inspections, we believe there must be a fair balance between ensuring the tenants uphold their responsibility to care for the property, and the inconvenience and disturbance.
It is our policy to inspect every rental property under our management three times a year. As a result, a report is generated and sent to the owner on the condition of their investment, and the manner in which the tenants are maintaining the property in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Residential Tenancy Agreement.
From here, discussions are held with the tenant in regards to areas requiring improvement and recommendations are made to the owner outlining any general maintenance requirements. The property manager then attends to any maintenance requirements, once approved.
Inspections of your investment property are a good way to ensure maintenance issues are dealt with before they become a problem. The property managers will identify any areas requiring maintenance, both present and future, and will also recommend any ‘property enhancing’ improvements you may decide to undertake, for example; painting, security screens etc.
