Q. How long does it take for to produce an inventory report.
|A. In most circumstances we aim to provide a completed Inventory Report back to the customer within a 3 working day from the date of inspection, however our inventory clerks are able to provide a faster turnaround and even carry out both Inspections and Check-Ins on the same day.
Q. Can you do the Inventory and Tenant Check In at the same time?
A. Yes – the clerk can dictate the Inventory and then fill out manual overview sheets and the Schedule of Condition etc., that the tenant signs. This situation, however would not be ideal, as the Inventory is not signed at Check In and there is the risk that the refuses to sign it at a later date or subsequently disputes some of the details, which can lead to disputes further down the line. Try to avoid this scenario where possible.
Q. Does anyone need to attend with a clerk?
A. No, the clerk will collect the keys and return them once they have completed the Inventory inspection. Actually the clerk works more efficiently on their own.
