    Default Wwyd- inspection

    Have an inspection this arv. Planned on mowing the yard yesterday so it was neat and tidy foe today. Its not overgrown by any means but definitely needs a going over just to make it look nicer. Normally sil would watch the kids (mainly dd4 who is 13 weeks) while I do it but she has been in bed sick for the last few days. Then dd1 had an accident yesterday so had to get her checked out so was busy doing that. Add to that dd4 wont sleep during the day so no chance of getting it done while she sleeps. And cant afford to pay someone plus its too short notice now anyway. DH has been away almost 3 weeks so he cant help.

    Other than that the house is in good order- as much as it can be with a 4 year old, 2 year old and 13 week old! No damage, clean etc.

    Do you think the RE will be understanding given the circumstances? Like I said, its not overgrown or anything, just needs to be tidied up with mower. Its always been freshly mowed for all previous inspections.

    My sister was away for 2 weeks when her real estate did their inspection so the garden was a bit over grown and needed a mow. She received a letter after the inspection stating that garden needed some work and gave a date when they would be back to check it again. All was fine when they came back and they renewed her lease for another 12 months. I'm sure all would be fine if you explain why it hasn't been done.

    I would give the real estate a quick call. Tell them everyone/you in the household is sick http you did get to do mow. I have real estate reschedule because they did want to get sick themselves. The worse thing that can happen is you get a letter like the pp said.

    I wouldn't worry or make mention of it. Just go ahead as usual.

    This and if she asks just tell them what you have told us surely they will be reasonable it's not like you have damaged the property or have never done the lawns.

    Thanks ladies. They are usually pretty good and understanding so hopefully they are the same today.
