    Actually Emmi, the residential tenancies act in VIC states that they can only do 6 monthly inspections, with the first available to happen from the 3rd month of occupancy. It's section 86 (can you tell I've just had an issue with this recently 😂)

    No, as the PP said the first one is at three months and six monthly from there. I've worked in real estate for 14 years so I've had to verify it a few times for tenants.

    Our last lease through an agency was every three months and done indirectly by the landlords. It was their actual home they were leasing out because they didn't want to sell.

    Well if it was for routine inspections the agent/landlord were both breaching the Residential Tenancy Act 1997, technically. Doesn't matter that it was their own home. I wonder if they used that as an excuse to visit that often.

    This is from the tenancy handbook (point two).

    Not for a routine inspection. 24 hrs is only for looking at damage/repairs needed, for valuation inspection, if the property is for sale, if it is 2 weeks before you are vacating for prospective tenants or if they feel you are breaching your lease.
