An Inventory is an essential piece of documentation. The inventory of content, fixture, fittings and schedule of condition is to avoid any misunderstandings at the end of the tenancy. Without one, it will be impossible for the ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) service to determine any loss or damage to the property or its contents, should there be a dispute at the end of a tenancy.
The more detailed an inventory is, backed up with photographic evidence, the easier and faster the deposit procedure is for all involved, avoiding any disputes. With our easy to read, clear and comprehensive inventory report, there is little room to dispute what condition the property was in at the start of the tenancy. SAMPLE INVENTORY
At check-in, we meet the tenant/s, go through the inventory pointing out our findings, test alarms and check the meter readings together. When we have agreed the condition of the property, as stated on the inventory, the tenant sign for the keys and these are handed over. The agent/Landlord and tenant/s will then be emailed and/or given a signed hard copy of the inventory.
Our Check-out reports display all items side by side, to clearly show the property before (Inventory) and after (Check-out). Where there is no change, the report will say so. We give advice on who is to pay, what is fair wear and tear, and what is not. We work according to AIIC and ARLA's recommendations about tenant's and landlord's rights and obligations. We are constantly updating our knowledge bank with new legislation and recommendations. Knowledge we pass on to agents, landlords and tenants. We can give advice about deposit returns, a process all parties want to sort out as quickly and smoothly as possible. SAMPLE CHECK-OUT
