    Just make sure it's tidy - mainly bathrooms and kitchens , they won't have anything to do with the agent but may make a note if there is major damage to anything
    No it's older than that, but still fairly modern. But the owner only just bought it when I moved in, so I guess that's why she's doing it? I've never actually had one of these inspections before, in all the years I've been renting!
    It's being done by BMT Tax or something.

    I don't let any visitors into my house unless it's clean or tidy, so that's the norm for us. I would also be paranoid about the worker reporting back to the owners, so I would clean as if it was an inspection.

    Ok all done, took about 5 minutes. He measured the floor space, and took photos of stuff, don't know what exactly but I think just oven, dishwasher, just the fittings that they can claim on tax.
    Easy peasy, but I'm glad I took the extra effort and made it spotless, otherwise I'd worry too much!

    Yep sorry! I thought the same thing! Disregard my reply 😖
