Inspections are a very important part of our job and when owning an investment property. For owners, these are usually required for insurance purposes, at least every three months.
Above is a snippet of what our routine and full inspection reports can look like. There are a number of features for each room in the property, all of which have a status to represent their condition. The comments section is where we describe any damage or additional information about the feature. Such as the brand of a chattel or a dent in the wall etc. Along with the written section of the inspection report we take photos of each room and closeups of any damage. We aim to take at least 10 pictures per room to ensure the owner has a full scope of the current condition of the property.
Routine inspections are a good way to monitor how the property is being maintained and to get on top of any issues before they become worse. Inspections also allow tenants to notify us of any wear and tear that needs rectified before it worsens.
Full inspections are done at the beginning and end of a tenancy. These are more thorough and in depth. They will note any existing or new damage or wear and tear to the property. The move in inspection report is used as a reference for the exit inspection to determine if any damage or wear and tear was existing or happened during the tenancy.
If you are a current owner or tenant or an owner looking into our services and have any questions regarding our inspections, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we’d be happy to help!
