A routine inspection is conducted at regular intervals after a tenant moves into the property. We conduct our first inspection at six weeks into the tenancy to ensure the tenants are off to a good start and are maintaining the property in accordance with their lease agreement. Subsequent inspections are conducted every three to four months. These inspections are essential to ensure that your property is being maintained to an acceptable standard and to identify any maintenance that may be required.
Maria and Suzy often do the inspections together so we both have a good understanding of what is happening with each property. The inspection involves a room by room walk through with photos taken as a comparison to the inspection conducted at the commencement of the tenancy. Legislation determines we are unable to take photos involving tenants belongings or if the tenant refuses permission, however any photos taken will show damage or any concerns regarding repairs and maintenance.
We are entitled by law to conduct a maximum of 4 inspections each calendar year.
A copy of the routine inspection report is forwarded to the owner after each inspection and should it be necessary, a member of the Silver Downes Realty Property Management Team will contact you to discuss items noted on the report, particularly if repairs are required to keep your property in the best possible condition.
