A residential inventory inspection report is a full report of contents and condition of all the fixtures and fittings in the property including all rooms, outbuildings and garages. These reports are highly detailed and list everything from floor to ceiling, room by room. From switches and sockets to appliances and fittings, right down to the grass in the garden. We also take photographs of all rooms of the property and include them in the final report. This is then emailed to you or your acting agent within two working days for the tenant to check and sign.
The tenant is met at the property with the inventory so it can be checked and agreed together with the clerk, going through room by room and making any additional comments required. meter readings are also taken and then keys are handed over. We also take the tenant through some basic guidelines for looking after the property and giving advice on avoiding damages and their obligations at the end of the tenancy.
A check-out takes place when your tenants move out and compares the condition at the end of the tenancy to that on the inventory and check-in report taken at the start of the tenancy. Any discrepancies are reported and recommendations are made regarding the responsibility for damage or if the item falls into the term of "Fair Wear and Tear". The cleanliness of the property is noted and we take photographs of all damage. Finally meters readings are taken to be noted in the check-out report.
