To make inspections and searching for photos easy and intuitive, zInspector treats every home, unit, or Common Inspection Unit as a separate Property. (In zInspector, “Property” and “unit” are synonymous.)
Single-Family / Single-Building Units
For conventional properties like single-family homes or single-building units, the term “Property” is straightforward. The single-family home 123 Cherry St., for example, identifies both the property and the unit.
Use Create New Property with Quick Mode or Full Mode to create single units.
Multi-family homes are split up into separate units and each is treated as a separate property in zInspector, even if they are on the same actual property or within a single building. For example, a duplex at that Cherry St. address would be inspected as 123 Duplex 1 and 123 Duplex 2, to differentiate the separate units occupied by distinct tenants.
The same logic applies to larger complexes. Unlike single-unit properties, Multi-Unit mode supports the addition of common spaces which we call Common Inspection Units. Common Inspection Units are treated as independent units but are associated with the complex by name. Common Inspection Units include recreation rooms, pools, utility closets, driveways, and elevators.
Use Create New Property with Multi-Unit property mode to generate many properties with similar Areas. The Multi-Unit mode streamlines the creation of multiple similar units and the addition of Common Inspection Units.
