“My property is being managed by an agent. Can I inspect my property whenever I like?”

When can you inspect your property?

We asked managing director at Real Property Manager, John Gilmovich for his advice:

John said landlords are permitted to inspect their rental property in accordance to the same laws that apply to their rental agents.

“Notice periods differ in each state and the number of times the property can be inspected in any given year can differ, as well as restrictions on days and times,” he said.

“In most cases written notice has to be given on each inspection to the tenant.”

John suggested any property owners with queries regarding their rights to inspect should check with their state laws before an inspection occurs.

“Discuss this with your property manager, as there are fines in place for breaches,” he said.
