What is an inventory?
An Inventory is a detailed document containing photographic evidence of the scheduled of condition and contents within a property before letting is commenced to the tenants to prevent or resolve any dispute between the landlord or the tenant.
Why is an inventory required?
Although there is no legal requirements to obtain an inventory, due to the "tenancy deposit scheme" it will be required as evidence in a court of law should there be a dispute on the condition of the property at handover from the vacating tenants.
When the time comes to agree the amount of deposit returnable to the tenant, a fully detailed and accurate inventory will support the evidence of both the landlord and the tenant.
What is an Interim report?
An Interim inspection is a report that is carried out in mid tenancy by an inventory clerk by prior arrangement, at this point it can be quickly established if the tenancy is going well or there is likely to be any problems.
Why is an Interim inspection required?
Again having an interim inspection is not a legal requirement but having one will go in your favour should there be a dispute on any damages to the property.
What is a Check in?
A check in report combined with an inventory creates a report specific to a tenancy. Meter readings are taken and keys are signed for by the tenants.
Why is a check in required?
A check in is a good way to highlight any issues to the tenant whilst walking around the property. A check in provides a schedule of condition of the property and sets the standard at which the property should be maintained.
What is a check out?
A check out report takes place at the most important point of the tenancy - when the tenants move out.
Why is a check out required?
A check out report is required to see the state of the property after the tenancy has expired. This is then compared to the inventory/check in report to clearly see if any damages have been caused during the tenancy of the property.
