We offer several inspections to ensure that tenants have not caused damage to your property.
DETAILED INSPECTION REPORTS WHEN YOU NEED THEM
Inspections offer a glimpse into your property's health and that's why we offer several types of inspections at different times.
We conduct visual walkthroughs of your property to ensure that there is no damage caused by the tenant.
Here's an overview of our different Inspections:
A Move in and a move out inspection are required. This is to protect you from any potential liability and complications that may arise at a later date. We walk through the property with tenants and record any preexisting issues that may be noticed. When a tenant moves out, we complete another walk through and the original inspection is compared to the move out condition of the property.
An inspection involves a general and visual walk through of the property. We inspect walls, floors, ceilings, doors, cabinets and some appliances. We look for damage, and if found, we record it with a description and by taking a photograph as well. We have software that converts this into a presentable report which will be stored on your owner portal for accessibility later on.
A pre-move out inspection is an inspection conducted when the tenant provides 60 days notice to vacate the property. The reason why we encourage all of our clients to go ahead with this inspection is that it will provide us with enough time that we can remedy the situation prior to the tenant vacating the premises. Once a tenant has vacated the property, any damage must be dealt with in Small Claims Court.

In our opinion, inspections are worth their weight in gold. Firstly, they maintain the integrity of your home. Secondly, they allow us to show face to the tenant. Thirdly, they allow us to likely uncover problems in your property.
Yes you can. Every 3 months we send our clients a reminder that we are conducting our periodic (quarterly) inspections. These are not mandatory and therefore can be skipped. The move in and the move out are the only mandatory inspections.
If we find damage during an inspection, we photograph and record a description of the damage. This is then entered into our software for storage purposes. If damage is found during an inspection that we believe was caused by the tenant, we will always have that discussion with them onsite. This is followed up by a written request. If the tenant cannot provide evidence that they have rectified the damage, then we will inform you of this and send the tenant a Notice for Damages.
Our inspections cost $100 per occasion plus applicable taxes. This includes our travel time and our time at the property, which is usually 1 hour in duration.
