Inventory & Check In Report
The check-in examines the property on the day that the agreement begins, noting the condition of furniture and fittings, meter readings are noted and a photograph is taken to guarantee accuracy. The new tenants will be asked to sign inventory & check in report and any keys that are passed over and we will walk tenants through the property, highlighting any issues with them. A check-in provides a detailed overview of condition of the property and sets the standard at which the property should be maintained, and returned at the end of the tenancy.
Each inventory report combined with an check in report which is created prior to a tenancy. The inventory clerk is booked by the agent or private landlord to meet the tenants at the property.
Check Out Report
The check out can be done before and after the tenants move out. A check-out report takes place at arguably the most important point in your tenancy – when your tenants move out. The check-out compares the condition at the end of the tenancy to that on the inventory and check-in reports. Each room in the report will have an overview, photographs and a detailed description of any changes that have occurred in the property. We will assign liability for these changes to either tenants or the landlord (maintenance) or to fair wear and tear. The report also notes final meter readings, and compares keys returned to keys provided at the start of the tenancy.
Fire Safety Devices
From 1st October 2015, it has become law, that landlords must have a smoke alarm fitted on each floor of a rented property and a carbon monoxide meter is fitted in high risk rooms (where there here is a solid fuel heating system or boiler). In addition, landlords must test the devices at the beginning of a tenancy to ensure they work. Failure to follow these rules, could result in a civil penalty of up to £5000.
