“My property is managed by an agent. Am I entitled to attend the routine inspection with the agent and chat to the tenant if they are in attendance?” Owner, NSW

We asked Co-Founder and COO of Rent360, Penelope Valentine for her advice:

“Yes, you are able to attend the inspections with the Property Manager,” Penelope said.

“The Property Manager must give the tenant the appropriate notice that the inspection will take place, and the tenant can either be home for the inspection or give permission to the agent and owner to attend the property by themselves.”

Penelope said that if the tenant is there, the owner can speak directly with the tenant.
