Firstly, we will conduct an inspection prior to tenants moving in to record the current state of the house and to record any defects or blemishes on the property, these will be photographed for any future use.
During the tenancy period, regular inspections will be carried out on a three-month basis, or more frequently if deemed necessary. These inspections will be carried out by our skilled property managers who will provide a report of the homeowner and note any defects or maintenance issues that may have arisen, and provide options to remedy these issues. Regular inspections will allow homeowners to know how their property is going and keep on top of any issues and maintenance requirements.
At the end of a tenancy period a final inspection will be conducted to assess if there is any damage or faults from the tenants, which repairs will be taken from their bond.
Maintenance is an important part of any property, and especially rental properties. With regular inspections, we aim to reduce maintenance costs by undertaking any issues immediately, before they could get worse, resulting in higher costs. Our Property Managers will consult with the homeowners on any maintenance issues, especially in relation to the costs involved and what works for you. We can arrange for any repairs to be undertaken in a timely manner and with homeowner permission. We work with a variety of reliable and affordable contractors to offer the best solution for your property.
