Portsmouth’s membership agreements do not include the facilitation of inspections for the city, fire department or other administrative duties. However, we do offer this service to our clients at a service rate of $115.00 per hour. The reason behind having this excluded from our membership packages is of significant benefit to all our clients as it keeps our services plans at competitive rates.
As Portsmouth does not have team members located on site for each of our properties under contract, this fee is to compensate our team to cover travel expenses such as gas consumption/mileage.
Allowing Portsmouth to facilitate these inspections ensures that the inspector will be able to enter the unit, whereas leaving the entry to be provided to the tenant can be unreliable and may create additional costs the owner if entry is not provided.
