After careful tenant screening and if the tenant(s) do qualify, we do an exterior inspection within the first 30 days and many more thereafter. (At any time, an owner can ask for an exterior photo and we can drive by to get some photos upon request).
The first interior inspection is within 90 to 100 days of move-in. This will give the tenant(s) time to move in and get comfortable. If anything was out of the norm, it would generally show within the first 3 months of occupancy of which we can send a non-compliance letter to the tenants in violation to show that we mean business and give them a chance to remedy the violation.
Depending on that first interior inspection, we may do another within 3 months if we found any unusual behavior. If the first interior inspection was within our guidelines, the next would be the annual inspection.
