Inspections and Reporting - Protecting Your Roanoke Rental Property

A well-maintained rental property in Roanoke is a valuable asset. When your property
is in good condition, you can expect higher rents, lower vacancies, and successful,
long-term tenancies.

One major part of our maintenance plan is the inspection. We inspect before a tenant moves in, after a tenant moves out, and at least once during the lease period.

Move-In Inspections

The purpose of a move-in inspection is to ensure the property is ready for occupancy and also to document the condition of the home before a tenant takes possession.

We take careful notes. We follow our inspection checklist. We document property condition with hundreds of photos.


Move-Out Inspections

Like the move-in inspection, we do a careful and complete evaluation of the property condition after a tenant vacates. This is to protect you from paying for repairs that the tenants should be held accountable for. They’re responsible for anything beyond normal wear and tear, and our inspections reveal what they’ve damaged or destroyed.

Maintenance Inspections

Deferred maintenance is deadly to both your property and your ROI. Let’s avoid all that. When you partner with Lawson Realty Group, you can count on frequent inspections for unreported repair issues or potential future problems.

We want to make small, simple repairs – not large, costly repairs.

Documenting & Reporting

We’re never going to bother you when decisions can be made by your experienced, professional Roanoke property management team. But we want you to be informed. So, we provide detailed inspection reports with hundreds of photos. You always know where your property stands.

Managing Repairs

Sometimes, an inspection reveals that part of your rental home needs attention. Maybe it’s a simple tightening of a handrail, new batteries in the smoke detector, or an appliance that seems to be leaking. Maybe it’s an HVAC system that needs further inspection. We’re ready to respond.

Recommending Updates

It’s not only maintenance that protects your property and your bottom line. It’s also the occasional update, upgrade, or improvement. Simple, cost-effective things that can help your property stand out on the rental market and bring in additional rental revenue. We make these recommendations to you.
