We recommend carrying out a mid-term inspection 3 to 6 months into a new tenancy. This allows you to catch any maintenance issues whilst they are still minor, before escalating into larger, more expensive repairs.
It provides tenants with an opportunity to voice any concerns or ongoing issues and confirms they are abiding by the rules of the tenancy agreement.
If you have a longer tenancy or renew your tenancy with your tenant, you should have a mid-term inspection at least every year.
