I have been happily renting my home for the last 18 months and am due to renew/extend my tenancy agreement shortly. My concern is the frequency of the property inspections carried out by the letting agent.
Whilst I appreciate and respect the need for regular inspections, how often is too often?
My agent insists on inspections every 3 months and although they give plenty of notice and are always flexible if it is not convenient to me, I feel the frequency is bordering on invasive. Each report goes back with excellent feedback and without concern. I could understand if I was a problem tenant or if issues were being raised but this is not the case.
My tenancy agreement includes the fact that inspections will be carried out but does not detail how often. Can I demand that they reduce the frequency?
I am looking to extend/renew my tenancy in the next few weeks for another 2 years but the thought of 8 more inspections does not thrill me (I see some of my own family less often!!!).
