What are Property Inspections and Why Are They Important?
A property inspection is the process of examining the physical condition of a property to identify any potential issues or hazards, ranging from structural damage, safety concerns, or maintenance problems that may require attention. Regular inspections are crucial to help identify potential issues before they become costly problems.
For landlords, inspections help in maintaining the value and integrity of their investment while also ensuring compliance with building codes and regulations. For tenants, on the other hand, inspections provide peace of mind knowing that their living space is safe and habitable.
Types of Property Inspection Services
As a full-service property management company, Amanica can handle all your inspection needs so you can rest easy knowing your property is in good hands.
- Move-In/Out Inspections: When a tenant moves in, we document the condition of the property via pictures, videos, and on an official California Association of Realtors® inspection contract. These are used to compare the property’s condition when the tenant moves out, noting any damages that may have occurred during the tenancy and ensuring a fair security deposit refund.
- Annual Property Inspections: These are routine inspections carried out on an annual basis to test the functionality of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms and check for any other maintenance or safety issues that may have arisen throughout the year, catching any problems before they escalate.
- For-Cause Inspections: These inspections are conducted in response to a specific issue or concern raised by either the tenant or landlord. For example, if there is a leak in the roof, a for-cause inspection will be conducted to identify and address the source of the problem.
- Exterior Property Inspections: These inspections are conducted by driving by the property and taking pictures—which we then provide to you—verifying tenants’ upkeep of yard/lawn maintenance. These can be done either on a quarterly basis or upon request.
- HOA Compliance Updates: Homeowners Association (HOA) rules and regulations can change over time. Our property inspection services include checking your property for compliance with the latest HOA regulations to avoid any violations or penalties.
