Routine Inspections

The property will be inspected approximately 3 months from the commencement of the tenancy and then either quarterly or 6 monthly thereafter (depending on owner instruction and initial inspection).  Information relating to the inspection and notice of entry will be received by you at least 7 days prior to the inspection. You will also be reminded of the routine inspection via SMS the day before the scheduled inspection.

 Please be aware that the owner of the property will receive a copy of the report and the condition and cleanliness of the property may determine if the owner is willing to renew your lease in the future.

 On the day, we will be inspecting the premises to ensure the property is being well maintained and to identify any repairs or maintenance that need to be addressed.
