Each and every tenant has to go through a rental inspection in Australia, once in a while, and those who have seen it can vouch for the fact that there is nothing to be scared of. The rental inspection is a way for a landlord to make sure that his property is being taken care of and thus if you maintain your calm and keep the property safely you are just giving a good impression.
Rental inspection is definitely very important because if the landlord finds anything objectionable he or she may just ask you to move out on account of it. Although you as a tenant have the right to be informed about the upcoming inspection at least 24hrs ahead of time. Also, rental inspections are pretty quick, taking a ballpark view of how things are and hence last for about 10 minutes on average. But there are some things that you need to take care of. Take a look at them below.
Do some minor repairs:
Take a quick look at the property yourself and find out if there is any damage caused by you. Do a quick repair for the same. Also, if there are any shortcomings in the property that are bothering you, you can bring it to the notice of the landlord during the inspection.
People who have pets face a little difficulty during the inspection as they may keep bothering you or the landlord. Thus it will be a good idea to find someplace for them while the inspection is being conducted.
Take care of cleanliness:
A way to put a good impression on the landlord is to keep the property well managed and clean. A dirty place will just give him or her the idea that you are not valuing the house properly. Many houses have gardens also. You need to understand that if the garden came with the house then the landlord would want to see it maintained. Take good care of it too.
Make a list of issues that you want to discuss:
You too might have a few things to discuss with the landlord. A good idea is to list them down and discuss them once the inspection is over. Also do not panic or lose your patience during the inspection or while putting forward your point.
Make sure the inspection is being conducted in your presence and that if any problems are there, make sure they are run by you first.
