Orlando Property Investors Promote Inspections

Inspections are Promoted by Property Investors in Orlando


Property Inspections

Regular inspections will take many property investors’ time, but they are well worth it. Inspections are intended to protect both the property investors and the tenants. In Orlando, one-time inspection is not-sufficient to provide you with reliable information of your property. For your protection, it is important that you have well-documented communication. This will help ensure that your expectations are clear to both the tenant and your property manager to avoid any disputes.

There are key times that investors should perform property inspection:

Before a new tenant moves in

Your Orlando property manager and the tenant should evaluate and inspect the property together prior to the tenant move in. This gives an investor an opportunity to clearly communicate face-to-face, the condition the property should be left in. Together, you can clearly document issues and needed repairs that currently exist. This will allow a tenant to agree to the condition of the property prior to taking possession. Therefore, it is extremely important that you have good documentation and that all parties have received a copy.

Seasonal maintenance or safety concerns

It is important that you check and change the filters in the air conditioning and heating units prior to their seasonal use. Cleaning gutters and roofs prior to the hurricane season will help reduce water damage.   Preventive maintenance will reduce your repair costs. Professional property managers insure that tenant’s safety is address, too. Safety inspections will help protect your tenants from unnecessary perils. Addressing safety issues will help protect the property owner from lawsuits.

Prior to the tenant move out

Property Inspection Reports

Property inspections prior to a tenant moving out are important.  You need to review the documents created before they moved in. Also, the lease agreement will be helpful. Tenants are not responsible for any damage that existed prior to their moving in.  Your documents should clearly show any preexisting damage. But, tenants are responsible for any damage other than what is consider to be normal wear and tear.

Tenants should view inspections as helpful. Inspections serve to protect both the tenant and the owner.  They are part of the responsibility of your property manager. Property owners can always trust that Real Property Management Freedom in Orlando will provide a responsible inspection schedule for you.  We recommend, 3 inspections per year.  One at move-in, a second at 6 months at one after 12 months.
