Will you inspect my property?
For starters we call property inspections, property reviews because in some instances you are required by law to be licensed in order to “inspect” a property. Unlike a home buyers property inspection we are not crawling under the house, or climbing on the roof or in the attic to inspect.
Reviewing your rental property is just something that we highly suggest all owners have done, either on a quarterly or semiannual basis. At the same time, we also want the tenant to feel like the rental is their home. We want to minimize any interference with their peaceful enjoyment of the home. We have learned over the years that the more we leave good tenants alone, the longer they tend to stay.
With that said, there are times that routine property reviews are needed. First, let us explain all that we do to make sure that your home is well documented, and then explain the process for property reviews. When we take the property on, we conduct an initial property reviews which generally includes a written report, photos and/or videos. Next we conduct move-in property review and move-out property review to document the condition of the property. The property owner receives a report with photos and/or video after each and every move-out property reviews.
And lastly, all of our vendors are trained and required to report any cleaning or damages to the property when they provide service. With all that said, if the property owner wants an property reviews, we will do it at a nominal cost to the owner. But this needs to be within reason.
Can I inspect the property?
As mentioned in “Will you inspect my property?”, property reviews are important and need to be done. The tenants do have legal rights to the property and there are laws and rules that we must follow. Therefore, we require that all property reviews be scheduled through our offices.
