Monitoring and looking after your property asset>
Monitoring Your Asset
While Routine Inspections are not intended to be a full maintenance audit, experience shows that one of the most reliable warnings for future tenant default is a below average inspection. For this reason, we take these inspections very seriously, make our expectations of our tenants clear and act quickly if the inspection does not meet our standards.
The major purpose of a routine inspection is to establish if the tenant is keeping the property according to the terms of their lease. If this is not the case, we have the opportunity to trigger enforcement or removal action.
We will report our findings to you A-D
When inspecting your property, we use defined criteria to score the tenant’s rate of effort and acceptability of the general standard of tenancy. We strive to get all of our tenants to have A+ class inspections. You can see the scoring criteria and tenant expectations by viewing the Tenants Routine Inspections Page.
What we do
A routine inspection is a 15 – 20 minute overview. We take this opportunity to report to you on the overall condition of the property. We note any obvious areas of concern that may need attention. We will, of course, hold your tenant accountable to immediately repair any damage discovered that has been caused by the tenant.
What it is not
A routine inspection is not a full vacate inspection or maintenance audit of your property. Your property will only be fully inspected for condition and the tenant held accountable when they vacate (this detailed inspection can take up to 3 hours).
Should you wish to have your property inspected in more detail, we are happy to arrange this for you. Our maintenance team offers a full detailed annual maintenance audit to help you plan for ongoing maintenance. Contact us for more information.
