If you are renting a property, either as a tenant or as a landlord, you should understand that incoming and outgoing inspections are required by law under the Rental Housing Act.


Rental property inspections are an important part of renting a home, and the best way to protect both the tenant as well as the landlord. Inspections are not about identifying damages and defects only, they are a vital element in building healthy relationships and trust between tenants, agents and landlords.


A Zinia Rental Inspection is aimed at ensuring that the relationship between the tenant and landlord is established on a sound foundation and that all parties are in agreement of what damage or patent defects exist at the time of occupation, and in so doing, avoid future disagreement or lenghthy drawn out and costly legal challenges.


Zinia Home Inspectors, using the latest software applications, are trained to identify and accurately record pre-exisiting defects and maintenance issues. 


Rental Inspections must be carried out with the tenant, the landlord and/or agent present in order to ensure there is a clear and un-ambigues mutual understanding of all pre-existing conditions.

The majority of home inspection companies utilise either a checkbox report or a narrative report. Although there is no right or wrong, both of these types of reports have their Pros & Cons.


  • A checkbox report gives the buyer peace of mind, in that they can physically see that all components of a home have been checked. However, these reports contain very little or no narrative which may at times lead to confusion as to the extent of the damage or what the recommendation or next steps should be. 


  • A purely narrative report gives the buyer a more in-depth understanding of only the material defects that have been identified and recommends actions to be taken. The downside is that the buyer does not have the peace of mind that every component of the home has been checked as per a check box report.


A Zinia Home Inspectors Report adopts a combined approach. The aim is to provide a report that is both comprehensive and easy to understand, as well as detailed enough to leave no room for ambiguity. In short, our reports contain the best of both, the peace of mind provided by checkboxes, as well as comprehensive narrative with recommendations supported by relevant images.
