Annual Inspections Are Important

Annual inspections of your rental property are important for several reasons.

  • Checking structural items, such as leaking pipes and windows, can prevent far more costly repairs involving dry rot and mold.
  • Relying on tenants to advise you of needed repairs will often result in cosmetic items being done rather than the structural items.
  • Annual inspections provided an added bonus of tenants knowing you are actively involved with the property, so they take better care of the premises and know they won’t be able to sneak in the unauthorized occupant or pet!

Since you must change smoke alarm batteries (and perhaps fire extinguishers) annually, you can accomplish an inspection easily at the same time.
