This is our most common service for new tenancies; as recommended by letting sector governing bodies.
The full report from top to bottom, inside and out – all items, fixtures, fittings and decoration, separate further overviews and cleaning schedules. We also meet the tenants to check them in; including taking meter readings, recording keys and testing smoke and CO2 alarms.
It is good practice and provides more protection for your property to carry out a fresh inventory and check in report at the outset of every new tenancy rather than updating older reports.
Our inventory and check in service includes a full inventory & schedule of condition and a meet and greet with the new tenants at the property on their moving in day to complete the check-in process. We hand over keys and go through the inventory report with them ensuring they understand it. We will record the meter readings, keys and test and record smoke and CO2 detectors. If tenants are not available for the check in we can deliver keys locally for them to collect, our software will then provide a seamless sign off process from the tenants. The completed report is sent to all parties involved within 24-48 hours.
You can view an example of our Inventory Check In report on our sample reports page. We have put together a list of property inventory Frequently Asked Questions, so if you aren’t a seasoned property manager or are unsure about the process then this should answer any questions you have, or get in touch.
