Check-ins can be completed in one of two ways. Either simultaneously at the time we create the inventory or subsequently once the inventory document has been created. Having us to check in tenants when we are completing the inventory means that everyone is fully aware of the detailed nature of the inventory, any issues can be captured and the issuance of keys and meter readings recorded.
In some instances clients prefer to have a check in completed once the inventory document has been created. This is often the case with complex or heavy furnished properties. This additional visit allows us to go through the inventory in detail. In the event of any amendments these can be recorded on the check-in report. The tenant will sign off on the document witnessed by our assessor.
At the end of the tenancy it makes sense to have an independent check out. We use the inventory together with any amendments to assess the state and condition of the property when the tenants leave.
We will deliver a report which identifies any material changes since the inventory was taken. We will also detail our independent assessment as to the liability for any changes. These liabilities being summarised at the end of the report. This allows tenant and landlord to have a solid basis from which to agree any dilapidation costs.
