Re: Best way to handle inspection?

Some landlords are saying the their insurance is requiring a "safety and fire inspection." Look at every outlet. That will take you into every room. Check the plumbing if you want and whatever else as a "courtesy." Look into the garage as part of your fire inspection. Look for containers of gasoline and the like as well as heaps of junk. Anything you do not like can be considered a "fire hazard." If your tenants ask why you are making an inspection now and have not before, you may say that you have a new insurance company. While you are looking at everything, be sure to check for unauthorized occupants and pets. Make your inspection when someone is home and take someone with you.
