Home Inspections in San Fernando Valley – This is How the Professionals Do It

Experienced investors know that a lot can happen to a rental property between tenants. If the only time that you walk through your property is after a tenant moves out, you’re doing a disservice to your investment. Periodic property inspections inside and out can ensure your property is being well maintained. Routine property care assessments are a good way to inspect.

Schedule with Tenants

Plan ahead, and schedule a time with your tenant to enter the property. You can schedule quarterly or semi-annual inspections to ensure frequent review. Give the tenants an inspection schedule during the lease signing so they will know when to expect you. Communicate with your tenants so they know you’ll be looking for lease compliance and proper maintenance. With sufficient notice, tenants are often happy to have issues at the house addressed.

Look for Necessary Maintenance

Check the exterior, plumbing, furnace, water heaters, air conditioning units and other mechanical systems. You also want to check the appliances inside the home. Take photos of areas that need attention and proactively attend to any item that needs repairs so you keep your costs minimized.

Look for Lease Compliance

Check the number of occupants and pets to make sure the tenants are complying with the lease terms. Look for signs of smoking. You can do this discreetly and professionally, and then address any issues in writing after you have completed the inspection.
