What do you look for during an inspection?
The Residential Rental Inspection Program inspection normally takes 15-20 minutes. The program's scope includes interior unit conditions as well as exterior conditions such as parking lots, driveways, landscaping and accessory structures, fences, walls, trash enclosures, swimming pools, hot tubs and spas. The inspector will also check for electrical work and fire hazards. The owner or owner's designee must accompany the inspector during the inspection. A designee must be 18 years or older to give the inspector access to the unit. Tenants are welcome to be present during the inspection. All units will be inspected in one day or, in cases of large complexes, over a series of pre-scheduled days. The inspector's focus is identifying substandard maintenance conditions that do not meet the minimum standards established by local and state laws.
