Routine Inspection Guide

By Arrive
Wednesday, 27 February 2019

We will conduct a routine inspection at the property within the first 3 months of an initial lease commencing.

If we are satisfied with the standard of the property, we will schedule 3-6 monthly inspections as necessary.

The purpose of a routine inspection is to provide a report to the owner that the residents are maintaining the property in good order, and also to check for any repairs that may be necessary. Please note, however, that it is the responsibility of a lease holder to report any repairs or maintenance through our on-line resident portal. We appreciate you taking the time to report such items!

Another reason for conducting routine inspections is to make any recommendations to the owner that will enhance the property where possible, thereby offering a safe and inviting home for our residents.

So let’s get to it!
