Inspections and Access

Viewings and inspections (24 hour notice)

During your tenancy inspections are carried out on the property to ensure that it is being maintained to a reasonable standard and to evaluate if any minor works are needed.

Tenants will be notified of inspections at least 24 hours in advance. In order to minimize disruption to tenants, SouthSide can provide access for inspections or if you prefer to be present please inform your property mananger. Please note that although we can’t always guarantee a specific time for the inspection, we will do our best to arrange the inspection within a 3 hour time window where requested.
