    Property inspections are done on a regular basis. Every quarter an inspection inside the unit will occur, and you will be given 3 days’ notice of intention to enter. It is not required that you be present but encouraged. Please note that I also perform random outside inspections of the unit. This is not meant to interfere with life, but to ensure our properties are in good order.
