Homecheck property inventory clerk services
Homecheck provides a comprehensive inventory management service for agents, landlords and tenants for rental property in Chesterfield, Sheffield, South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.
Why are property inventories so important? An inventory provides landlords with a complete and comprehensive record of the contents of every room inside the rental property.
The property inventory catalogues in detail not just fixtures, fittings, furnishings and appliances, but also their condition. The inventory includes a detailed description of the condition of walls, ceilings, floors, carpets, paintwork, light fittings, woodwork, windows, radiators – namely, absolutely everything in the property. A copy of the inventory is held by both parties and signed and agreed when a new tenant moves in.
When you decide to rent or at tenant change-over – choose a Homecheck solution
If you decide to rent for the first time or you are an experienced landlord or letting agent with a tenant change-over about to take place, Homecheck can produce, usually in just 24 hours, an up-to-date inventory of your rental property. The inventory provides you with an almost immediate understanding of your property’s condition, and equally provides the tenant with a benchmark starting point, so everyone is clear at the outset of the condition of the property.
And during the mid-term and check-out steps of the tenancy, the property inventory document serves as a basis to iron out any landlord-tenant disputes or issues.
No inventory – what are the consequences?
As a landlord, if you decide not to have a property inventory, then it can be difficult to recover the costs of damage by the tenant that exceeds the value of the initial retained deposit, particularly compounded if there is no formal, mutually agreed inventory on record of the property’s condition at the outset of the let. And bear this in mind: if you decide to retain the deposit in lieu of damage costs, this can lead a tenant taking you to court for its recovery. So for peace of mind, trust property inventory company Homecheck to provide you with the best solution.
