Landlords Inspection Service
Under the Residential Tenancies Act, a landlord must ensure the property is maintained in a safe condition. At common law, a landlord has a duty of care to provide the tenant with a safe dwelling.
Your Insurance will not cover you. If your property is not maintained in a safe condition, then you are likely to be in breach of your Landlords Insurance and or Building Insurance conditions. Most insurers require a landlord to maintain the property in a safe condition at all times.
Your Property Manager is not responsible. Inspecting buildings for structural defects and safety hazards is a job for a licensed and insured professional with suitable experience and training. Your Property Manager or handyman is not considered to be a fit and proper person to thoroughly inspect your rental property to The Australian Standards.
The buck stops with you. Deaths and serious injuries from the collapse of decks, balconies, stairs and floor boards are becoming all too frequent. You, the landlord, are ultimately liable. If someone is injured or dies whilst at your rental property and this is found to be due to a lack of maintenance, you may well be liable.
BuildingPro offers a number of annual inspection services including Annual Building & Timber Pest Inspections; Annual Building Maintenance Inspections; Annual Termite Inspections; and Annual Deck Safety Inspections. By utilising our annual inspection service you can meet your responsibility and aid in protecting yourself from litigation and penalties while maintaining your property investment and providing a safe environment for your tenants.
Our Landlords Inspection Service
Our inspector will visit the property initially and re-inspect thereafter at every lease renewal or change of lease. We arrange the access to the property with your Property Manager and or tenant/s. The inspector will inspect and report on the condition of the rental property according to the annual service requested.
A detailed report will be sent to both you and your Property Manager. The report will enable your Property Manager to promptly arrange any necessary repairs.
