As part of our service to the landlord, we will carry out periodic routine inspections of the properties normally every 3 months. You will be notified in writing of the proposed inspection date, although generally we cannot give a specific time for our visit. It is always helpful if the tenant is present during the course of our inspection but it is not essential for you to be there. The main purpose of the inspection is to satisfy ourselves that the property is being maintained to the standard set out in the lease and any problems arising will be notified to you at the time of our inspection or shortly thereafter. Where it is necessary for us to revisit a property arising from problems caused by tenants, we reserve the right to charge you for these supplementary visits.
