Inspex is an independent nationwide company, working with Local Authorities, to support the achievement of private rented sector (PRS) inspection and compliance targets. We play an important role in ensuring minimum accommodation standards in the PRS are met.
The Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017 apply to all dwellings rented from private landlords, approved housing bodies and institutional landlords.
Using Government regulations and guidelines, Inspex sets the standard for mobile PRS inspection works. We lead the market with independent verification of minimum accommodation standards and property certification.
Inspection Team & Support Services
Our commitment to service delivery is embodied by our tried and tested methodologies and tools. An end-to-end partnership approach means we provide each of our clients with a tailored inspection service.
Our inspection team is Garda vetted, fully trained and consists of directly employed Inspectors with relevant qualifications and broad property experience.
Our property experts are on hand to advise clients through the inspection and compliance process.
Our mission is to meet the challenge of establishing the standard to which all rental property can be inspected. With our vast experience of property inspection, we know that many properties fail to comply with basic standards set-out in Government regulations and many properties are unfit for purpose.
These minimum accommodation standards are set out in the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017. These Regulations replace the earlier Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2008 and the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) (Amendment) Regulations 2009.
We continue to promote the benefits of a transparent and independent inspection process. This will ensure national inspection standards are finally established and that our actions result in higher standards and better regulation overall.
With our bespoke technology built on Government regulations and legislation, Inspex has set the standard for PRS inspection and leads the way to establishing the National Property Test (NPT). We are prepared to meet the challenge of establishing the standard to which all property can be inspected.
National Property Testing Service (NPT)
Inspex has standardised the PRS inspection process vis-à-vis Government rental and building regulations. Working on behalf of Local Authorities our service is available nationwide. As a company, we are totally independent of the property industry and do not engage in property management or repair activities. Inspex continues to promote the establishment of the National Property Test (NPT).
