Property Health Checks
With the new Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act in mind, this inspection is to check if any issues have arisen since the tenancy started. We flag any worsening problems and report on misuse by the tenants, potential health & safety hazards and compliance issues. Its designed to protect both landlord and tenant and give you the chance to address issues before the mole hill becomes a mountain.
The inspection can be carried out at any point during the tenancy, ensuring the tenants are given at least 24 hours written notice for access. We recommend if you don’t have time to visit the property that you should use this service at least once every 6 months.
The Clerk will fully inspect the property, referencing a check list of potential issues/hazards and generate a report noting any issues found.
Issues can include – leaks, broken windows, additional tenants, pets being kept, smells of smoke, electrical hazards, misuse & damages.
Full photographs are taken to back up the report. If a landlord is present we will flag any issues found. The ‘check list’ report is then sent to the customer within 24 hours detailing all the major points found.
We are on hand for any follow up advice or to answer any questions you may have in the days, weeks or months following the visit.
