Take care of your property

Mid-term inspections, otherwise known as property inspections or mid-term reports, check the condition of your rental property against the inventory and highlight any potential maintenance issues.

A visit to the property helps to catch any issues early on and gives both parties a chance to address any problems before they get worse.

A AIIC-accredited clerk conducts an objective inspection of your property's condition to ensure it's being well looked after. It's also an opportunity for tenants to report any issues that the landlord may be unaware of, and get them fixed as soon as possible.

We recommended carrying out a mid-term inspection 3 to 6 months into a new tenancy. This allows you to catch any maintenance issues whilst they are still minor, before escalating into larger, more expensive repairs.

It provides tenants with an opportunity to voice any concerns or ongoing issues and confirms they are abiding by the rules of the tenancy agreement.

If you have a longer tenancy or renew your tenancy with your tenant, you should have a mid-term inspection at least every year.

Our mid-term inspections are carried out by qualified inventory clerks. They will conduct a full inspection of your property's condition and produce a written and photographic report. The report will include:

  • A summary of the property's overall condition
  • Details of the condition of its contents
  • Checks that the property is being used only by named tenants
  • Checks for smoking and pets
  • Checks for any required maintenance work

The property inspection gives tenants a chance to report any issues that the landlord may be unaware of. It's also an opportunity to ensure the property is being cared for and that the tenancy agreement is being followed.

We have a network of AIIC-accredited clerks that conduct professional inventories, mid-term inspections and check-outs all across the UK.

They will provide a detailed and thorough report for your records and perform a completely objective inspection of your property.

In the unlikely event of a damage-related deposit dispute, a mid-term inspection will be useful evidence for your case.

Whilst you can conduct a mid-term inspection yourself, deposit resolution services favour professional third-party documents. If you don't have any inventory or inspection evidence at all, you are unlikely to be awarded deposit deductions.

A mid-term inspection usually takes around half an hour. The larger the property, the longer the inspection will take.

Yes, you can still carry out a mid-term inspection even if you did not have a formal check-in or inventory at the start of the tenancy.

Your professional clerk will not have an inventory to refer back to during the inspection, but the visit will still be worth it.

We always recommend a professional inventory and schedule of condition to all our landlords, but it’s better to at least have a mid-term report than to not have any formal documentation at all.
