Why would I need my rental property inspected if it is not required? To document the condition of the property before, during or after a tenant moves into the unit.
How is the condition of the property documented? This inspection will provide you with a dated computerized report with pictures of your property. Do I need a lawyer in this process? ABI advises all our clients to retain the services of a qualified real estate lawyer with expertise in landlord and tenant issues. One law firm that we have suggested as a possible contact in your selection process is Ward and Associates. How does a report or inspector testimony help me in court? The report and/or our expert testimony can provide much needed documentation that your property met Mass. Sanitary Code requirements. This can be very important if you are in housing court trying to evict a tenant.
Why are ABI inspectors qualified to conduct these inspections? All of ABI’s inspectors are Commonwealth of Massachusetts Certified Home Inspector that have demonstrated a proficiency in the application of the State Sanitary Code by satisfactorily completing the ISD certificate program and have been issued a certificate of completion.
What are the benefits of working with an ABI inspector? ABI inspectors work for their client not the city
