How Often Should You Have Your Rental Property Inspected?


If you just purchased a Central Valley Rental Property you may be like most brand new owners who are eager to maintain your investment while making sure that their tenants needs are continued to be met; this can be done through inspections, but the BIG question is how often should you have your rental property inspected?

So how often should you schedule a rental home inspection? It depends upon several factors:

  • If you have crawlspaces or a basement, you might want to invest in a rental home inspection every 2-3 years, or each time your property comes up for re-rental. You may also want to inspect this more frequently if you have older plumbing or wiring, or if your home is in an area with a lot of moisture, an extreme climate, or both.
  • If your home is newer and was professionally inspected when you bought it, and you don’t have major weather extremes, you can probably get away with a longer inspection cycle.
  • If your home has never been professionally inspected since you’ve owned it, do it now.
  • Another reason to have a rental home inspection is if you are planning a major renovation project anyway. Why? You don’t want to have already committed thousands of dollars to a bathroom remodel only to discover that you need to replace your furnace. Conduct a reconnaissance before you march.
