What Is A Mid-Term Inspection
An interim property report is conducted partway through the tenancy, which helps the landlord understand the currents condition of the property. It should seek to highlight any maintenance issues and or forecast any potential issues such as unauthorised occupation, pets and smoking as well as any known anti-social behaviour.
Interim Reports, also known as Routine Inspections are important and recommended after a new tenant has been installed into a property. At Trust Inventory we can do regular checks, monthly, every 3 months, 6 months or yearly.
Our inventory clerks will use shoe covers at visits, take general photographs and brief notes during the inspections.
- Brief overlook on property condition
- General photographs for each room

Give assurance to landlords
The property should be generally clean and tidy for a routine inspection. The tenant should inform the property manager/owner of any maintenance issues as soon as they occur. Most property managers usually request any non-urgent maintenance requests in writing.
Our inventory clerks will take general photos inside the property and additional, detailed images to highlight an issue that needs to be addressed. The purpose of the mid-term visit is to make sure everything is in accordance with the tenancy agreement, that there is no evidence of Sub-Letting, unauthorised pets or any misconduct.
Routine inspections are carried out to ensure the property is being well cared for and that there are no maintenance or health and safety issues.
