An inventory report is a detailed, comprehensive and impartial record of the condition of the contents of a property as well as its general condition at the outset of the lease of the property. It is jargon-free and highlights defects or aspects of poor condition that have been identified by the inventory assessor. Defects in condition will be described both in the narrative of the report and evidences in the photographs included in the report.
At check-in (the start-date of the lease), the inventory assessor will accompany the tenant around the property. Using the inventory as a point of reference, the standard and condition of the property and its contents will be agreed upon and additional points will be noted in the inventory/check-in reports. Meter readings will be noted and keys released and signed for.
At check-out, with 'fair wear and tear' being taken into consideration, the check-in/inventory report will be again used as a point of reference when re-inspecting the property at the end of the lease. Any discrepancies or changes will be highlighted in the report and evidenced by photographs. Keys are returned and meter readings are also taken. Reports sent to landlord/agent within 24 hours.
Mid Term Inspections
These inspections are arranged periodically to keep landlord and agent aware of any potential defects within the property. Rather than being a check against the original inventory, the mid term inspection will comment on any obvious issues such as damp/leaks, mould, evidence of pets, infestation and smoking as well as general standards of housekeeping. This inspection also gives the tenants the opportunity to flag up any outstanding maintenance issues.
