Home Inspections for Wisconsin Landlords
Rental Property Inspections at Affordable Prices
Before you can rent out a property, you need to have a comprehensive home inspection. The state of Wisconsin requires various inspections so new residents know exactly what they are moving into. Unfortunately, inspections can be taxing for property owners and landlords who do not live at the residence in question. Previous tenants might have hidden signs of damage in order to keep a security deposit, leaving you unaware until new tenants move in and hold you responsible for repairs. Unfortunately, this means you are left searching the home top to bottom for potential problems.
Don’t get stuck searching the home top to bottom for potential problems yourself. Save time and money by hiring a professional home and condo inspector from Wall to Wall Home Inspections to check out your property for you.

Wisconsin Radon Testing for Residential Buildings
Wisconsin buildings are susceptible to the buildup of radon gas, a radioactive byproduct of decaying uranium. This gas is especially common in Waukesha, Washington, and Milwaukee Counties. Radon can enter homes through the foundation and cause deadly health consequences to those living there. Annual tests are necessary to keep residents safe.

Test are also available independent of an inspection for only $150. Radon testing can literally save lives, so be sure to schedule it at regular intervals.

Protect Your Rental Property from Tenant Damage
If you do not have move-in and move-out inspections performed at your property, you’re putting yourself at risk. Renters may perform their own inspections after they move in and make false documentation of damage they’ve caused in order to get out of paying for it later. While this is rare, it is best to protect yourself with a pre-move-in inspection to prove there are no problems with the property.
Inspections of rental properties should be performed twice a year to keep tabs on any changes. Contact Wall to Wall home inspectors to schedule an appointment. Remember, the tenants must be given notice a minimum of 12 hours before an interior exam is performed.
Move-out inspections are your chance to document any damage caused to the property by your tenants. You’ll want this inspection performed as soon as possible so you can start fixing the damage before your next renters move-in. Anything revealed in the inspection can be used to justify keeping the security deposit or taking the former renters to small claims court. Our inspection reports include photo documentation as proof.
Whether you own a duplex, condo, or multi-family home, Wall to Wall inspectors are ready to help protect you from your tenants.
