Rental Minimum Standards Inspection
From the 29th of March 2021, the Victorian Government enforced minimum rental standards for all rental properties in an effort to create a fairer, safer system for all Victorians.
This means that all Residential Rental Providers (RRPs) must make sure a property meets the minimum standards on or before the day a renter moves in.
What are the minimum rental standards?
The standards follow themes of health, safety, amenity, and energy affordability.
The areas of assessment include:
- Structural soundness
- Windows and window coverings
As well as the Government mandated Minimum Rental Standards Inspection which includes a written report including corresponding photos, we can also carry out a full Rental Inspection, which includes the Minimum Rental Standards as well as a full internal and external inspection listing defects in all the rooms and hallways, external paths, driveways, gutters, foundation and cladding structural damage etc.
This is a great inspection that should be carried out every three years to check on the condition and structural condition of your investment.
