    Default Insulation.

    I have only just thought of this people. With the new laws regarding insulation in rentals, who checks the insulation in the properties at the end of the tenancy as part of the outgoing inspection?

    The amount of money involved, I suggest it may be prudent to put it into outgoing inspections as anyone who disturbs or removes the insulation (for whatever reason) will cause our clients to incur a considerable expense.

    Yes we had a lot of insulation around a manhole in a public area disappear one time in a large block of flats. We put a padlock on it after that!

    Wow I'd never have thought of that - not sure why they'd steal it though - a lot of trouble to go to and what do with it - sell it or install it in their next rental?

    cheers,

    Would think it extremely unlikely and impractical for any tenant to remove the insulation. Its very labour intensive and the insulation is usually custom cut to a size suiting the rafters of the home its installed into. It is most often stapled in..

    Opportunity for a whole new industry here !

    "To save your Property Managers having to climb ladders and make a qualified decision on what is present, for only $100+ GST per year per property we will do the check for you to ascertain that your property has maintained its insulation standard . . . ."

    Sounds easier than meth testing !

    I like that one Nice .....Nicking hot water cylinders is more the rage, but only in unoccupied properties that is ..
