What to Look for in Property Inventory London Services
A Property Inventory Report is a binding legal document that provides a summary of condition of the property and its contents at the start of a tenancy. The importance of a property inventory cannot be overlooked as it protects all parties and limits disputes over liability and damages. If you are about to sign a tenancy agreement then it is a good idea to get in touch with a professional organisation that specialises in Property Inventory London reports. Unfortunately, for first timers finding the right organisation can be a difficult task. The following text can help you on what to expect from the organisation assisting you with the property inventory.
Initially, a qualified expert from the property inventory firm should visit before the tenant(s) are due to move in to create a schedule of condition from scratch. Negligence in this step may result in disputes later on. That is why the expert should create a comprehensive report of the condition of the property and its contents. The expert should supplement their report with various photographs.
A representative from the company should be present when the tenants move in for the first time. They should move around the property room by room and go through the property inventory London with them. Finally, the representative will hand over the keys to the property only after the tenants sign the report.
When the tenancy comes to an end, the company representative should visit the property to compile an outgoing condition report. This report combined with the tenant check in report will be used to establish liability of the tenants for damages to the property.
If your property needs maintenance some inventory service providers offer their assistance in this regard as well by visiting your property and gathering as much information as needed possibly with pictures. This information is then used in getting estimates for the work needed.
