Regulation and oversight of standards are important to protect the State's substantial investment in housing. Choosing an experienced team like Inspex makes the job of ensuring properties meet minimum standards possible. Our end-to-end bespoke solution combined with our shared services centre ensures the best possible outcome for the achievement of local authority inspection and compliance targets.
Within the PRS, compliant and responsible landlords are entitled, wherever they are providing quality accommodation to know that statutory standards are being enforced and that the non-compliant landlord is being detected through a system of regular inspection.
A report by the National Oversight and Audit Commission (NOAC) on the inspection of private rented accommodation indicates low rates of inspection of the private rental stock, low rates of compliance and little consistency in the approach to implementing the regulations across local authorities.
Even with ring-fenced funding for inspections, resource constraints mean local authorities are experiencing difficulties establishing proactive and standardised inspection programmes. Government targets to achieve 25% annual inspection coverage of rental properties annually are possible but only with an experienced partner.
Already the preferred choice for several Local Authorities, choosing Inspex to increase PRS inspections and compliance targets makes sense. Our local authority clients benefit from our shared services centre where our property team is on hand to answer PRS landlord queries throughout the inspection process.
