How Often do you check in?

When renters are in place at a property, how often do you go visit the rental property to check condition. How long before the end of a lease do you go and assess work that may need to be done?

Tenants have the right to be left alone. They aren't infants sleeping in a crib. Arrange and write in the lease that there will be one inspection a year with notice and leave it at that. A good tenant will call you if something needs attention. Outside of that, don't bother them. Do a drive by occasionally to make sure the outside looks good. You assess work needed when people vacate and you can actually do the work.
