So sorry for the late reply. I’m guessing you will have already finalised your policy however I thought I would just drop in the headlines for you to compare. (Our policy also covers the 3 separate companies that I am the GM for so will be a bit different to just a PM policy.) Of course your WA Govt will no doubt have different ideas to ours.
So matters I focused on were:
What happens if the tenant is quarantining or in isolation?
Can tradespeople enter a rental property for repairs?
Can a property manager/owner ask the tenant to do a virtual inspection?
Can a tenant request to know the vaccination status of the property manager/owner, a tradesperson or people attending an inspection?
Can a property manager/owner request a tenant vacating a rental property who has had COVID-19 or been in quarantine to do additional cleaning?
What happens if the tenant is due to vacate and then forced to isolate?
With regard to routine/open inspections:
In QLD, since April 2021, the normal rules for entry to a property have applied in the main. This means that tenants cannot refuse entry to their home for non-essential reasons such as routine inspections, so it’s all systems go.
However, during a period of COVID-19 lockdown, when the QLD Chief Health Officer’s directions advise that movement has to be limited during that particualr lockdown period, tenants, property managers/owners are encouraged to work together to delay any non-essential entry and only permit essential entry to occur (for example, to attend to emergency repairs and maintenance). If work can be delayed, we have delayed it until after lockdown.
If a tenant is concerned about a member of the household with a higher risk profile being exposed to COVID-19, we ask that they discuss these concerns with the property manager.
It is important that all parties communicate openly and respectfully. Remember, any entry into rental properties must be in line with public health directions and advice as well as legislation.
I hope that helps a bit.
