Las Vegas Rental Property Inspections
It is my opinion that a Las Vegas Property Manager should inspect a residential rental property inside and out at least two times a year. I can’t tell you how many times I have been contacted by a landlord who has recently fired his property manager due to the damage caused by the tenant which was only discovered after they moved out and come to find out the property manager never inspected the property during the tenancy. Sure enough, when the tenant moved out of the property, the landlord was stuck with all the expenses in order to get the property rent ready again.
Shelter Realty schedules an inspection every 6 months for every property we manage. A property manager does an inside and outside inspection of the property to ensure the tenant is properly maintaining the property. A form is completed depicting the condition of the property and listing any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. By conducting multiple inside and outside inspections of the property, it enables us to catch small issues before they become bigger and in most cases it’s a deterrent for any future problems.
In order to protect your investment, make sure you property manager is conducting regularly scheduled inspections by requesting a copy of the inspection report. If it is time to renew your property management agreement, request that inspections of your property be completed every 6 months in order to ensure your property is being maintained by the tenant before you sign the renewal.
