At Property Inventory Company we provide impartial and independent professional inventory services to Lettings Agents, Estate Agents, Housing Associations, Landlords, Tenants and developers in North London, Hertfordshire and Essex regions. Further information of each Inventory Service are explained in more detail below.
An inventory report is a concise and detailed list of the contents, fittings and fixtures of a house, flat or office that is being let. This includes everything from the carpets and curtains to all the furnishings (if furnished). An Inventory provides a clear concise snapshot of the property at the time of the inventory completion with digital photographs provided to support the report. Inventory Reports must be carried out by a third party, independent inventory specialist otherwise it will be considered bias and will not stand up in a court of law when needed to be relied upon.
A check in report is prepared at the beginning of each new tenancy. This report should be carried out immediately before the new occupants move into the let property, where possible on the same day. In order to conduct check in reports the original inventory report must already be prepared, each item on the original inventory will be checked, it’s presence/absence and condition noted. Keys and meters are also checked and the readings are recorded. The tenant will then sign the report to confirm its accuracy. Our Team produce photographic check ins to support our reports. On the day of check in the property must be in a suitable condition to be let and all maintenance and cleaning should already have been carried out.
An interim inspection is made part way through a tenancy and looks at the condition of the property, its contents and any issues there may be. It can also be used to identify if any of the property requires repair, restoration or maintenance or is in need of decoration. Photographs will accompany and Interim Inspection Report.
A check out report is compiled at the end of the tenancy, once the tenant has moved out and prior to any cleaners, builders etc entering the property. We compile a Check Out Report that goes through the condition and contents of the property against the original inventory and check in reports, whilst allowing for fair wear and tear. Meter readings will be gathered and the correct number of keys recorded. This report is also photographic.
EPC – Energy Performance Certificate
EPC’s are required whenever a building is rented out, sold or built. Unfortunately we no longer provide this service, however we would still recommend landlords to have one produced by a qualified assessor. EPCs alongside an associated report which suggests improvements to make a building more energy efficient. The EPC is then lodged on the central EPC database.
