Property Management Pro Tips – Routine Inspections

By Siobhan Robinson

Hi there, I’m Siobhan, the Business Development Manager with over 6 years of experience in Property Management.

Routine inspections are essential for landlords to keep track of the condition of their property and ensure that tenants are complying with the terms of the lease agreement.

Firstly, it’s important to note that we always inform landlords of the day and time of the routine inspection and invite them to attend. As a landlord, you have the right to attend these inspections if you wish. Some landlords prefer to be more hands-on and involve themselves in the inspection process, while others appreciate the agent taking care of it for them.

During the inspection, we take photos and make comments regarding the condition of the property and how the tenant is maintaining it. This information is then compiled into a report, which is sent to the landlord once the inspection is completed. The report is a great way for landlords to keep track of any maintenance issues that need to be addressed and ensure that tenants are meeting their obligations.

At Ray White Carlingford we conduct the first routine inspection three months after the tenant moves in and then every six months thereafter. This ensures that any issues are identified and addressed promptly, preventing them from becoming more significant problems in the future.

Key questions to ask your property manager!

it’s essential to ask your property manager the right questions to ensure they are conducting routine inspections efficiently and effectively. Here are some key questions you can ask:

  1. How often do you conduct routine inspections, and what is your process for scheduling them?
  2. Will I be notified in advance of the inspection, and can I attend the inspection if I choose to do so?
  3. What items do you check during the inspection, and what is included in the inspection report?
  4. What happens if you identify any issues during the inspection, and how are they addressed?
  5. Can I receive a copy of the inspection report, and how frequently will I receive them?

These questions will help you understand your property manager’s process for conducting routine inspections and ensure that they are keeping your property in good condition while also maintaining a good relationship with your tenants. It’s essential to have a clear understanding of your property manager’s inspection process, so you can trust that your property is in good hands.
