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 rental sector has grown at considerable pace over the past few years with a record number of people in Ireland now renting. With approximately 336,685 RTB registered tenancies and 170,598 landlords, legislative and regulatory changes in the rental market has meant our role in supporting our local authority clients and landlords has broadened.With the regulatory framework ever more complex, our inspection service has expanded to include the provision of a contact centre and document management services. Our expert property team is on hand to provide high-quality information to PRS landlords, handle queries and process the necessary documentation related to the inspection and compliance process.
Inspection Team & Support Services
Using Government regulations and guidelines, Inspex has set the standard for mobile PRS inspection works. We lead the market with independent verification of minimum accommodation standards and property certification.
Our multi-disciplinary 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 2019. These Regulations replace the earlier Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017, 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, Inspex set the standard for PRS inspection and now 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.

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).
