While COVID impacted our ability to conduct certain scheduled routine inspections, it is a vital property management task to carry out regularly for the following reasons:
We understand that we are often the primary person to inspect the property and realise the importance of keeping you up-to-date on your property’s condition.
When carrying out routine inspections, we pay particular attention to high-risk areas such as ripples or tears in floor coverings, uneven pavers, inadequate property locks, poor external lighting, loose electrical points, dangerous obstructions, and mould build-up (to name a few). These areas, if overlooked, can lead to a liability claim should there be a slip or fall at the property.
The routine inspections that we conduct are ‘visual’ inspections only. We do not move furniture, rugs or undertake extensive inspections behind items in cupboards. As a property investor (landlord), it is your responsibility to ensure that you engage or instruct our agency to appoint professionals to conduct regular pest, builders, pool safety (if applicable), and smoke alarm compliance checks.
When you receive a routine inspection report, carefully read the comments and contact our agency as soon as possible (if required) to authorise or discuss the repairs or maintenance.
