A good quality, well-prepared and accurate inventory is essential for any tenancy. It is therefore crucial that the inventory is accurate in the event that deductions are required from the tenancy deposit - especially if there ends up being a dispute between the landlord and the tenant over the deductions.
We offer the following inventory services:
Inventory/Schedule of Condition & Check-In Report
A written report detailing the presence and condition of the decoration, fixtures and fittings and furnishings of the property. The report also includes colour photographs giving an overview of each room, and documenting any defects or damage which may be contentious at the end of the tenancy. Incorporating the check-in report, the utility meter readings, legal compliance equipment and keys for the property are also detailed.
We can meet the ingoing tenant and go through the inventory with them to ensure all parties are satisfied with the content (subject to appointment availability and fee applies).
Using the inventory and check-in report as a basis, the check-out report assesses the condition of the property at the end of the tenancy, detailing any damage over and above normal wear and tear, and makes recommendations for any deposit deductions. The report also details final utility meter readings and documents the return of keys for the property.
We can meet the outgoing tenant and go through the check-out with them to ensure all parties are satisfied with the content (subject to appointment availability and fee applies).
We use cloud-based Inventory Hive software to compile all our property inventories, which include high-resolution photos throughout the report.
We aim to provide an efficient turnaround with our inventories, and they are guaranteed to be available within 48 hours of the property visit.
Our staff have achieved Propertymark Qualifications NFOPP Level 6 Award in Residential Inventory Management and Practice (Scotland), which is highly regarded as professional qualification in the letting industry for the preparation of inventories, so you can be assured that your inventory will be compiled by someone who has the knowledge and skills to do so.
We hold professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance for complete peace of mind.
