Your first Routine Inspection is usually carried out within three (3) months of moving in. The inspection will take approximately 30 minutes to complete, if you are not home for the inspection our office will complete the inspection using our spare keys. The owner may also attend the inspections & our office will from time to time conduct drive by inspections of the property. We regret that it is not possible to re-arrange an inspection date or time as our inspections are booked into relevant areas. Furthermore, routine inspections will only be carried out Monday to Friday between 9.00am & 3.00pm. The main reason for routine inspection is to ensure all the fixtures are in good/working condition. The landlord also receives a report on how well you are keeping the property with regards to general cleanliness & tidiness.
As a resident under the Residential Tenancy ACT you are responsible to ensure the property is kept clean & tidy at all times. You are also responsible for reporting maintenance as soon as it is noticed to ensure we can resolve the problem as soon as possible. This can be done in writing using the Maintenance request forms we gave to you upon entering the property. These can be faxed, posted, emailed or hand delivered to the office.
Part of keeping the property clean & tidy means that you are also responsible for mowing, edging and garden maintenance on a regular basis and not just for the Routine Inspections.
