For many years now in the Property Management world, routine inspections of properties has been best practice. In our agency, we inspect properties every 3-4 months and provide a full written report to our Landlords.
The purpose of a routine inspection is to ascertain the tenant’s care of the property and to check if any preventative maintenance is required. It also gives the Tenant opportunity to report any maintenance required as well as update their contact information.
Far from being “routine” we believe these inspections are a very important part of our work and duty of care for both our Landlords and tenants.
