Rental Property Maintenance and Regular Inspection Reports
Every rental property will need maintenance work at some point. If you’re lucky, there will be minor repair requests rolling in here and there. But, rental property owners aren’t always lucky. Sometimes there’s an emergency in the middle of the night or a flood or fire that leaves the home uninhabitable.
At Walters Home Management, we are proactive and preventative when it comes to maintaining your San Diego rental property. We work hard to ensure that everything works well. We won’t allow deferred or unreported maintenance to cause more complex and expensive problems. Our vendors are committed to responding immediately when we need help, and they do good work for affordable prices.
You don’t have to worry about how the tenants are treating your home. Our detailed inspection reports document the condition of your property and hold your residents accountable.
Our diligent response to maintenance issues protects your investments and your property’s value.
Emergency, Routine, and Preventative Maintenance
Before tenants move into your home, we go over our process for reporting maintenance. They understand the difference between an emergency request and a routine repair. When an emergency is reported, we take care of the problem right away. Our network of trusted vendors is ready to spring into action anytime there’s something wrong at your property that affects safety or habitability.
There’s a 24-hour phone line that’s answered when an emergency needs to be reported.
For routine repairs, we’re committed to responding with the same sense of urgency. We don’t want to put your property at risk by delaying the maintenance work that’s needed.
Tenants are asked to submit these requests in writing, through their online portal. This is better for them, because it’s more convenient. It’s better for us because it creates a documented log of the work that was needed and completed at your investment property.
San Diego neighborhoods we serve include Carmel Mountain Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, and Carmel Valley.

Finding vendors you can trust isn’t always easy. Luckily, we have that covered at Walters Home Management.

Protecting Your San Diego Rental Property with Inspections
Our move-in property inspections ensure that the condition of your San Diego rental property is well-documented before your residents take possession. This will help us detect any damage that was left behind after your tenants move out. You’ll get a complete inspection reports with pictures and notes.
The same inspection report is used after the lease period ends and we’re again inspecting the property. We’ll use this to deduct anything that’s necessary from the security deposit to pay for repairs that go beyond normal wear and tear. Again, you’ll find detailed pictures and notes.
We also take the opportunity to walk through the rental home any time maintenance is requested. This gives us an opportunity to ensure your home is being properly maintained. It also gives you the peace of mind that your tenants are following the terms and requirements of their lease.
This helps to protect your property and its condition.
