Interim Inspection


The owner is consulted before any interim inspection is carried out.

We carry out interim inspections in the following circumstances:

  • on an ad hoc basis at the owners request
  • if there are excess maintenance issues reported
  • if there are complaints from the neighbours or the management company

We would caution against doing to many inspections as they can present the tenants with a forum for frivolous requests which then have to be considered.

When carrying out inspections, it is important to consider the following:

  • the tenants right to peaceful and exclusive occupation during their tenancy, which extends to the cleanliness of a property
  • normal wear and tear: the property will not be in the same condition from when the tenants moved in and this is generally not as a result of the tenant's negligence
