Understanding Inspections

Inspections serve as a proactive measure for property owners and lenders to assess the current state of a property, especially when there are changes in occupancy status. These inspections provide valuable insights into the condition of the property, potential risks, and adherence to property maintenance standards. 

Contact Occupancy Inspection

SGPNOW's Contact Occupancy Inspection involves sending a qualified field inspector from our nationwide vendor network to the property. The inspector attempts to make contact with the occupant to obtain their name, providing a personal touch to the inspection process. This service includes:

  1. Obtaining the occupant's name if given.
  2. Reporting on the general exterior property condition.
  3. Detailed photo documentation.

For property owners seeking regular updates, SGPNOW offers a subscription service to schedule contact inspections at specified intervals. 

Exterior Inspection

In situations where direct contact with the occupant is not possible or preferred, SGPNOW's exterior inspection is a valuable alternative.

Proactive Risk Mitigation with Occupancy Inspections

  • Identifying Occupancy Status Changes: Occupancy inspections play a vital role in identifying changes in occupancy status, such as unauthorized occupants or vacancy. This information is crucial for property owners to take prompt action, whether it involves addressing unauthorized occupants or preparing for new tenants.
  • Assessing Property Condition: The detailed reporting and photo documentation provided by SGPNOW's inspections allow property owners to assess the general condition of the property's exterior. Identifying maintenance issues early on enables proactive maintenance, preventing potential risks and preserving the property's value.
  • Mitigating Potential Liabilities: Vacant or poorly maintained properties can pose risks such as break-ins, vandalism, or code violations. Inspections help property owners identify and address these issues promptly, mitigating potential liabilities and ensuring compliance with local regulations.
  • Making Informed Decisions: Armed with accurate and up-to-date information from inspections, property owners can make informed decisions regarding property management, maintenance, and investment strategies. This proactive approach ensures that decisions are based on real-time data, reducing uncertainty and potential financial risks.

Inspections are a cornerstone of a proactive risk mitigation strategy for property owners. SGPNOW's comprehensive suite of inspection services empowers property owners with valuable insights into occupancy status changes and property conditions. 

By embracing a proactive approach to risk mitigation, property owners can make informed decisions, protect their investments, and ensure the long-term health of their real estate portfolios.
