I do management visits every quarter for the first year, and then 6 monthly thereafter. Its as much to do with establishing a relationship with my tenanats as much as it is complying with my landlord insurance. If I have to make a criminal damage claim, I have to show I there has been a management visit at least twice a year. Management visits are a 2 way street, as much about the tenants (my clients!) being able to address issues they may not have had time to address or report themselves, as it is for me to make sure they are looking after my property in a reasonable way. But yes, it is their home. They may not live exactly like you do, but as long as they pay their rent, are forthcoming and trustworthy, and keep the place generally well, you have to ‘let go’ a bit. Getting good tenants in the first place is the key, and if that takes a little longer than you’d hoped, dont fret… it’s worth it in the end.Look after them and they will look after you.
