Mid term inspection

Once the tenant has been in place for at least three months it is wise to find out how they are treating the property and whether any suggestions need to be made to them, or if there are any maintenance issues that may need your attention.

Proactive can book an inspection for you directly with the tenant and visit the property at an agreed date and time. From the visit Proactive will compile a report for you containing an overall appraisal of how the tenant is using the property, any suggestions for changes needed and a list of any maintenance issues you need to address and why.

We will check random items against the inventory and check for signs of subletting, malicious damage, unauthorised pets, smoking (if non smoking property)and ascertain the general level of care from the tenant.

As a landlord it gives you an insight into what is going on in the property without having to visit yourself. It is also far cheaper to have a list of potential maintenance items from the report than to send a contractor to the property.

Furthermore, if you are unsure about whether to renew a tenants contract because you have doubts, a mid term inspection in the last two months can give you the details you need to make an informed decision that is the best for you and your investment. After all, no landlord wants to keep bad tenants, however tenants that are respecting the property also need to be treated well as the whole moving process is incredibly difficult for all parties involved.

Mid terms also reduce the risk of void periods between tenancies because if you know the property is being treated well you can extend the contracts for longer periods each time, avoiding changeovers.
