My property inspection frequency

We asked Senior Property Manager with Harcourts Integrity, Tim Nickoll for his advice.

Tim said most owners prefer to have their inspections on a regular basis so they are kept up to date with the condition of the property.

“This not only includes how you are doing with the tenancy, but also to look out for maintenance issues and opportunities to improve the property,” he said.

“Most Landlord Insurance policies also recommend regular inspections so potential issues are raised as early as possible.”
