Inspection Day!

The inspection is very important. We need to know that the properties we are promoting meet or exceed our quality expectations. There's nothing to worry about though, all we expect is that your property is safe, clean and legal and that the product you are selling is an honest and true reflection of the of the property. Therefore, when we visit the property, it must be presented 'as if a paying visitor was arriving. Should you fail the inspection, we are here to to work with you, not against you. '.

I confirm that the property will be presented 'as if a paying visitor was arriving'

You will receive a confirmation email once you submit this form. We will then arrange for an inspector to visit the property at a mutually convenient time.
