I am curious about the practices and procedures concerning the rights that an owner has to access a property. In the case at hand, we are talking about the State Government (WA). One frequently receives a notice headed 'Property Inspection' There are two fundamental points that concern me about this. (1) The letter is couched in general and not specific terms i.e. they don't state specifically what the issue is, they just want to conduct a general inspection with or without any reason. Isn't this just an invasion of privacy? (2) They don't state how often these inspections will be carried out, only as they put it 'regularly'. But the question is how often should these inspections be carried out? What is to prevent them dropping a letter in your letter box two weeks after the last inspection? Isn't this just a form of harassment? What does the law say about the questions of harassment and privacy, and tenants rights? Isn't and shouldn't the government be subject to certain restrictions whether they are or are not spelt out under property law? Otherwise we might just as well be living in Stalinist Russia.
