What are the most common residential inventory services
Landlords and agents need to know that a property is in safe hands, whilst tenants want to protect themselves from the risk of paying for the damage they didn’t do. Trust Inventory compiles professional and impartial reports that meet recognised industry standards. With our help, landlords and tenants can start and end a tenancy on the right foot.
The shortest common tenancy period in the UK is 6 months, with many tenants living at their rented property for more than 3 years. Every tenancy cycle will start with a new Inventory Schedule of Condition, more advanced and professional letting agents will also organise a Check-In inventory and at the end of the renting period a Check-Out inspection will be scheduled.
Our property inventory company offers all the common inventory services through our local inventory clerks. Every tenancy cycle starts with a new Inventory Schedule of Conditions, this can be extended with a Tenant Check-in service that will make sure all documents are finalised and the tenants have settled in nicely and confidently.
Our friendly inventory clerks will make sure tenants are satisfied with the hand-over.
After a short while, usually 3-6 months, we would recommend having a Routine Inspection, also known as Mid-Term inspection, this will make sure there no unexpected maintenance issues or any instances where the tenancy agreement have been breached.
At the end of the tenancy cycle sits the Inventory Check-out, this inspection will determine there have been any changes to the condition of the property, of course leaving room for the normal Wear and Tear that occurs whilst living in a property for a longer period. This gives the Landlord advice whether if there will be any recommendation of charges to the tenant’s deposit.
No matter how well tenants are looking after their rented property, it will not be in the same condition at the end of the tenancy as it was at its start. Wear and tear will inevitably occur to carpets, walls, and other fixtures, fittings and decorations. Even well looked after contents will deteriorate with time and use.
Tenants will normally be liable for damages, missing items, or cleaning issues to the property which is in excess of fair wear and tear. Landlords need to allow for fair wear and tear during a tenancy.
