Being a Responsible Tenant, Routine Inspection and Maintenance Requests.

When you are renting a property through Ranges First National, there is very little required of you, as long as your rent is paid on time and in full every month, we will all be happy Landlords, Tenants, and Property Managers.

In saying that there is also one very important responsibility you have as a tenant, to keep the property in good, clean and working order throughout your tenancy agreement. An explanation and requirements of these are outlined in your lease agreement, and our wonderful Property Management team will encourage you to read through the agreement and we encourage you to ask any questions, at any time!

All of our landlords and tenants lease agreement are a standard document, making it reasonably straightforward as to your requirements and this makes maintaining the property relatively easy. It is, however, a good idea to do your research on any unfamiliar terms or requirements. As a tenant or landlord, it’s crucial to understand what your rights and obligations are - especially when it comes to repairs.
As a tenant, your landlord and/or property manager has the right to do a routine inspection of the property you rent through Ranges First National. Routine Inspections are normally once every 6 months during your tenancy after your initial inspections. We don’t just rock up unannounced, we will give you a 14 or 7-day notice via Letter, Email, SMS or phone call with our intention to inspect.
We don’t require you as the tenant to be home for the inspection, as we are at work we normally find so are our tenants. So if you can’t be present for your routine inspection, but you have some concerns relating to maintenance or questions, leave a maintenance request form and a note for your property manager. The forms can be downloaded from our website - http://www.rangesfn.com.au/maintenance-request-form or you can submit one online here http://www.rangesfn.com.au/maintenance-request. A great place to this leave is on the kitchen bench, where it can be clearly seen.
