This is a complete record of the decor, furniture, fixtures and fittings of the property including any outside space. Digital photos are provided of each room focusing on areas of interest such as items of value or specific dilapidations. Please note our discounted rates when an Inventory is carried out at the same time as a Check-In report.
We will walk the tenants through the property, hand over the keys and ask them to sign a Schedule of Condition. This signed document compiled with an Inventory report ensures that there is no dispute at the end of the tenancy. A Check- In report will provide grounds on which any deposits can be withheld at the end of the tenancy.
A check-out report takes place when the tenant moves out and is the most important part of the deposit return process. The check-out compares the property’s condition at the end of the tenancy to that on the inventory and check-in reports, thus forming the basis for which to withhold or repay the deposit. Finally, we will obtain all keys for the property at this time and return them to the agency.
We will act as an unbiased third party and will provide a report detailing the condition of a property and its contents at any given point in time during a tenancy.
After receiving your booking for inventory/check in/checkout we will take over and contact the landlord /tenant to arrange a suitable time for the job to be carried out.
A detailed and comprehensive report branded with your company logo will be returned within 2 working days.
Please call the office to find out about our promotional offers and/or to discuss volume bookings.
The Tenancy Deposit Scheme introduced in 2007 requires that a landlord must provide evidence of dilapidations before any of the deposit can be withheld.
A fully detailed and independent inventory report at the start of the tenancy accompanied by an in depth and independent checkout at the end of the tenancy is undoubtedly the best way to provide such evidence.
Our reports are regarded by industry experts to be amongst the most detailed in the industry and we are a full member of the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks. Please view our sample report and let it speak for itself.
