Is Your Rental Property Safe?

Rental Property & Tenant Safety – Landlord’s Risk

Landlords are in a difficult position regarding their exposure to personal injury claims from tenants for visitors to their property as they can be included in a claim or even held responsible even though they do not actively manage or visit the property. This is because they have a clear responsibility to ensure that the Tenant is provided with a safe property and free from issues that they should have reasonably been known about, irrespective of whether they personally inspected the property.

Property Safe
is an Australian owned company operating in Australia and New Zealand whose origins derive from businesses with over 23 years of extensive experience with property inspections.

Property Safe is able to bring to you the world’s first, patent-pending, specifically designed inspection and reporting system that will address the current risks and issues associated with personal injury at and around homes. They have undertaken extensive research into the most common areas of personal risk and subsequent litigation within the residential property. They have identified 16 specific risk areas and inspect for in excess of 120 individual risks that exist around the normal property.

Each inspection is carried out by a specifically trained, certified and insured inspector. A web-based system has been developed that ensues that every risk is checked and at the end of the inspection a fully detailed report is produced including with extensive photos and explanations for each risk area. In addition the report makes specific recommendations (an Action List) on what needs to be addressed. The report automatically produces detailed quote documents for all items on the action list.

The Property Safe report and Risk Management System is designed to remove the significant safety risks associated with property ownership. As a landlord you have a duty to ensure that anyone who visits / rents your property is safe from injury or death. Now this can be done quickly, easily and extremely cost-effectively.
