The Inventory Report is a full record of the fixtures, fittings and décor of a property.
The construction of the report is made up from a methodical process detailing every aspect of the property, internal and external. High-resolution digital photographs of each room and contents provide a quick and accurate overview, which combined with illustrative text provides an easy and accurate record.
All reports are delivered within 24 hours and are available as a PDF and a printed bound version.
The Check In report is carried out on the day the tenancy agreement begins. This report combined with the main Inventory Report is a vital element to any tenancy, and records various elements such as condition, contents, keys and meter readings.
As with the main Inventory Report high resolution photographs are provided to ensure maximum accuracy.
During the Check-In the tenants are walked through the property, noting any issues, and then will be asked to sign for any keys that are passed over, and to confirm they agree with the present report.
A Check-in is a clear report detailing the condition of the property and sets the standard at which the property should be maintained, and returned at the end of the tenancy.
The Mid-Term Report is an extremely useful measure to review a properties condition during a tenancy.
Our Mid Term appointments review the overall condition of the property relative to the duration of the tenancy. This allows the landlord and agent to remain fully informed throughout the agreement, and should any decision have to be made in regards to damage, that can be done so in good time before the end of the tenancy.
The Check-Out Report is carried out at the end of the tenancy and is one of the most important stages of the process.
The Check-Out essentially compares the current condition of the property against the recorded condition at the beginning of the tenancy.
Again, at this stage a full report is generated detailing all elements with high-resolution photographs and text to record any changes that may have occurred. Liability for any changes will be assigned to either the tenants, the landlord’s upkeep, or down to fair wear and tear.
The report also records final meter readings, checks all keys are returned and takes note of tenants forwarding details when possible.
