Whether you manage a property yourself or you employ an agency to manage your property for you, it’s really important that you ensure your property is inspected on a regular basis. You should probably arrange an inspection every six months to check that everything is as you would expect.
Inspections are very important for you as a landlord. They are your opportunity to look the property over and check that everything looks ok. Look for things like marks on walls, damage to appliances and general cleanliness. These are all good indications of whether your tenants are looking after your property.
Inspections are also important for your tenants, so never neglect them. They will make your tenants feel more secure and happy that you are clearly looking after their home. Make sure to ask them whether everything is ok and to sort any problems they might be having as quickly as you can.
