Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to get a minimum standards rental check?

Rental providers owe a duty to ensure their property meets the minimum standards. However, only rental agreements entered into on or after 29 March 2021 are covered by the minimum standards. If your tenants moved into the property before this date then you won’t need to get an inspection. As a rental provider, you are obligated to have an inspection carried out for any new properties you wish to rent.

What do you inspect ?

We check to ensure the property meets the minimum rental standards set out by your local authority. Our inspection covers safety, security and space requirements. This includes checking every aspect of the property against the minimum standards and providing a report you can use to prove your property meets those standards.

We also offer a range of other property inspection services, including pest inspections and builders’ inspections.

What if the rental property doesn't meet the minimum standards?

The rental agreement can be ended before moving in if the property doesn’t reach the minimum standards. Also, renters are able to request an immediate repair at any time after they’ve moved in to make sure the dwelling meets the minimal requirements.

Can I do my own minimum standards rental inspection?

It is possible for property managers and owners minimum standards rental inspection, but it’s not recommended. Professional inspectors have the knowledge and experience to identify areas that may not be compliant with the Minimum Rental Standards and can provide a comprehensive report that outlines any deficiencies in the property.

Is a routine property inspection the same thing as a minimum standards inspection?

No, a routine inspection is different to a Minimum Standards Rental Inspection. A property inspection provides an assessment of the condition of the entire dwelling and its related components for the owner or rental provider. A minimum standards inspection, on the other hand, looks for compliance with the Minimum Rental Standards – a legal requirement under the Residential Tenancies act 2021 for all rental properties in Australia.
