Why we do inspections?

Alide Elkink  |  April 27, 2018

There are a number of reasons why we carry out property inspections – all of them essential for
ensuring the maintenance and good management of your rental property. Reasons to carry out
inspections include:


  • ensuring small problems do not become big problems
  • checking for water leaks
  • meeting the requirements of most insurance policies
  • keeping an eye on your property.

Ensuring small problems don’t become big problems

By undertaking regular inspections, we can ensure that small problems do not become big (and
costlier) problems. We are able to attend to minor maintenance issues quickly while they are minor
and easy to repair. Once a small problem becomes a big problem, the repair becomes major and the
cost escalates.


Checking for water leaks

Water is one of the most damaging elements on the planet and if in the wrong place, can have the
single most damaging effect to your rental property. Water that comes from external sources such as a leaking roof or flashing, or internal sources such as leaking pipes, can cause huge damage if not addressed quickly. For this reason, one of the main things that we check for during inspections are any signs of water leakage.

Meeting insurance policy requirements

Most property insurance policies require regular inspections to be carried out in order to maintain
the validity of the policy.

Keeping an eye on your property

By carrying out regular inspections, we are able to keep an eye on your property, see that it is being
looked after and give you peace of mind.
