Step 2

Using Breezeway's mobile app, you'll be guided through each step of the inspection; prompted to take photos of certain items and safety precautions (photos are geo-tagged for verification). Once complete, your inspection is submitted to a Dwell Safe Certified Short-Term Rental Safety Inspector to review and approve. You have 31 days from the time of purchase to submit the final inspection. The final inspection should take less than 30 minutes to complete in an average 3-bedroom home.

Step 3

If there are any issues with your inspection, you'll be contacted and given the opportunity to correct them within a certain timeframe. Once approved and certified by Breezeway, you'll be issued a 'Commitment to Safety' certification registration number, that is good for one year. Both physical and digital decals with your certification number will be sent to you to add to your property listings, and adhere in a prominent location in your rental dwelling. Additionally, this certification can qualify you for 5% off of your Proper Insurance premium.
