Property Certificates , Photography & Marketing
As a landlord your property is a valuable asset. For a small sum of money you can help protect your investment by having a thorough inventory/ condition report for each tenancy.
An independent inventory that is professionally compiled together with a professional check out at the end of the tenancy will help to sort out any disputes that might arise. The tenant will be assured that the company producing the report is unbiased and that any assessments are independent and fair.
Our clerks have a wealth of experience visiting all types of properties on daily basis, they are able to assess damage, maintenance issues and wear and tear.
Photographs may be taken when conducting an inventory and will be embedded in the final document.
The inventory is not a brochure for the property, so photographs will be small and not high resolution, but will be accessible online for high resolution. Their purpose is to demonstrate the condition of a specific item or area rather than to afford an overall view. Context for a photograph will always be given.
Landlords sometimes decide to compile their own property inventories . These can be of good quality but, more often than not, we find basic documents containing little or no detail, which describe items of little value – such as teaspoons – while omitting the fabric of the building itself, such as walls, woodwork, flooring, ceiling, heating, lighting etc.
Another shortcoming with self-produced inventories is that they tend to be simple lists of items and neglect to register the condition at the start of the tenancy. An experienced inventory clerk knows what needs to be included and how best to describe items in accordance with industry practice.
It can be extremely difficult for a landlord to remain impartial when drawing up a document for their own property, which is another reason why an independent view is important.
