An inspection done by either the landlord or the tenant is known as a Rental Property Inspection. The home inspection is primarily done to check for defects in the rental property like structural integrity, material quality, size & proportions and fitting & finishing. The rental home inspection is very beneficial for both tenant and landlord as it provides in depth knowledge to the either party on the condition of the rental home, so that appropriate action can be taken. A rental home inspectional also gives important information about how the tenant has been using the property. The landlord can catch hold of the tenant if they are using the property for some illegal activities.

The rental property inspection service by PropChk is a fairly simple process. The tenant or landlord needs to sign up on our website of mobile application with their name, email id and mobile number and book a rental property inspection service by entering few basic details of the property like address, property type (1 BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK etc.) and the size. They also need to enter their preferred time and date of the inspection. Our Home inspection team would then assign a home inspector who would visit the premises on the fixed date and time.
The process consists of following checkpoints.
It is imperative for the tenant to check for any defects in the house before they move. From a landlord’s point of view this is equally important before a hy tenant vacates a house so they can penalize the tenants for any defects. Structural problems like little cracks, tiny leaks, and moisture in the ceiling or a deep vibration when a door is closed a little hard can result in costly repairs. Our home inspectors go through the entire home, ensuring that everything is built well and is safe. You don’t want to be filling in wall cracks with putty two months after you move in to a rental house.
We believe that a beautiful all-white interior can be extremely deceptive. In fact, there are few things more frustrating than crumbly plaster that powders down and leaves you sweeping one spot for an hour. This is where home inspectors come in. They not only ensure that the plaster has been mixed and applied properly, but also check if the tile quality is worth the price you are paying for it.
Fitting and Finishing:
A well tiled, squeaky clean rental house is a wonderful experience. That doesn’t last long if the tiles have been laid unevenly. The dirt and grit accumulate quickly, especially with a toddler running around, feet covered in baby food. Home inspections aren’t intended to merely check the quality of the building; the materials used, fixtures, fittings, doors, angles, and every other aspect that makes living in a house a great experience, are inspected very carefully.
Tools used in our rental house inspection are the following:-
Measuring Tape: A steel tape marked in meters and feet and divided
into cm and inches. Usually used by a person to measure the length
Right Angled Scales: It is used to check if the room corners are in right
Spirit level: This is the most important tool with the help of which the degree
of movement of the bubble can be determined between any two surfaces.
Typically this tool is used to check the levels.
Laser meter: Hold the device firmly against your chosen starting point. This may
be a wall, floor or inside of a door frame. Turn the laser distance measure on and
point it where you would like to measure. Press the measure button.
Keep the laser still until the measurement appears on the screen.
Thermal Camera: Thermal image capturing makes leak detection more
efficient and simpler, especially when the searched spot is hidden.
Thus, breaking open walls and floors “on suspicion” becomes unnecessary. Thermal
imaging takes advantage of the fact that leaking water shows a different temperature
than the environment.
Tripod stand: Tripods are used for both motion and still photography to
Prevent camera movement and provide stability.
TDS meter: A small hand-held device used to indicate the Total Dissolved Solids
in a solution, usually water. Since dissolved ionized solids, such as salts and
minerals, increase the conductivity of a solution, a TDS meter measures
the conductivity of the solution and estimates the TDS from that reading.
Tester screwdriver: Touch the tip of the tester screwdriver to the wire you’re
testing, being sure to hold the tester screwdriver’s insulated handle. Look at
the handle of the screwdriver. If the small neon light in the handle lights up,
there is power going to the circuit. Otherwise the circuit is dead.
Mallet: A mallet is a block on a handle, which is used to check for hollowness
In tiles or wall surfaces.
Digital multi-meter: A digital multi-meter is a test tool used to measure two
or more electrical values—principally voltage (volts), current (amps) and
resistance (ohms). It is a standard diagnostic tool for technicians in the
Ricoh 360 Camera: This camera is used for a 360 degree view of a property
which is more effective than pictures.
