Landlord inventory services is our focus and its what we do well. We have been in the property inventory business for over two decades within London, Hertfordshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire and have amassed a wealth of knowledge as a result.

Providing landlord inventory services is simple when not branching out into other services that would make us impartial.

We are a long standing member of the association of independent inventory clerks and our inventory clerks prepare our clients reports based around the AIIC criteria. The AIIC membership is very important when seeking a professional inventory report and shows that the company or inventory clerks know what is required and what they are doing is correct.

Hertfordshire Landlords and Inventories

August 04, 2012 Bloggies by danny

So now we have a large portion of the Hertfordshire market understanding the importance of a landlord property inventory service we seem to be getting more and more business. This means landlords are taking the inventory service very seriously within Hertfordshire and things are really changing. Great news for Hertfordshire’s tenants as well as Hertfordshire landlords.

A safe landlord and tenancy inventory service makes for a safe tenancy agreement.

Many new letting agents have started using us in Hertfordshire and we think this is partly due to the Tenancy Dispute Service and their schemes for holding deposits. The more disputes without an un-bias and third party inventory service such as ours, the more money the agent will have to pay to use the services.

An inventory service which is simply an inspection of a property is crucial in any tenancy agreement whereby all the items are recorded in an inventory list so as to protect the interest of the owner and the tenants. The list is prepared before the tenant is due to occupy the property and immediately after vacating. As a landlord, you therefore need to organize for inventory clerks to come and inspect your property as they record everything in the property in their condition together with photographing the items to act as evidence of their records. Detailed reports are prepared by professional inventory clerks as they comprise of a list of items and property starting with the front doors, floors, walls, ceiling, furniture, electrical fittings and curtains among others.

The check in inventories is later compared with the checkout inventories to determine whether the property is in the right condition as when the tenant was occupying the property. Damages as a result of normal usage of the property will not be considered for compensation as they are considered as normal wear and tear of the property. Lack of maintenance by the tenant leading to gross damages on the property will however be charged with compensation as determined by the inventory company that evaluates the damages to determine the equivalent cost of the damaged items for repair or replacement.

Why Use Landlord Inventory Services?

It should be clear that landlord inventories are not only beneficial to the landlords but also to the letting agents and the tenants. The three parties get various benefits by availing these services from qualified and experienced inventory clerks. Some of the advantages are such as:

·      Documentary evidence-This is the most crucial advantage both the tenants and landlords get from preparing a clear list of their inventory by a third party that is unbiased and professional in their service delivery. You may need to make some claim in the future and this document will be of great help to indicate the evidence of your claim. This is because inventory clerks preparing the reports list all the items and describe their condition to avoid any future dispute between the landlord and the tenant.

·      Helps when making insurance claims-This is very essential to both tenants and landlords when making insurance claims for their lost properties in case of various disasters such as fire or theft.

·      Inventory records are crucial to ensure that everything is in order. As a tenant or landlord, you need to keep a proper record of all your items from time to time. Periodic reports prepared by independent inventory clerks thus ensure that all old items that are discarded are removed from the list and new ones recorded to keep the list updated and in order.

·      Preparation of inventory reports is a tedious and time consuming exercise. Hiring professional inventory clerks will thus relieve you of the stress and pain of having to go through the process by yourself. It is crucial to let this task in professional hands to manage your property.

·      The interests of both tenants and landlords are safeguarded. Most times tenants worry about the safety of their deposits but having signed an agreement with your landlord will ensure your deposit is safeguarded and the landlord’s property secured from intentionally damage or negligence to take care of the house thus causing damages.

·      It ensures a better understanding between the landlord and the tenant. This ensures none of the parties will go ahead to make claims based on their memories rather on the evidence indicated in the inventory reports prepare by professional inventory clerks. Are you intending to relieve yourself from much stress as a landlord or tenant living in Hertfordshire? What you need is a landlord inventory service to record the condition of the property before and after the tenant vacates the premises.

Inventory services from a reliable agency are all you need to ensure proper listing of your inventories. Experience is vital in this case so that the service providers will be able to pay attention to the details of all of the items listed together with their condition. As indicated from above, landlord inventories are not only limited to the landlords but also to the tenants. There are many inventory service providers in the market but not all stand up to deliver the best services. What you therefore need is to do a thorough research on the most effective and experienced company that is renowned in the market to be delivering the best quality services. Here at My Property Inventory we ensure that the inventory reports prepared are of high quality and reliable in case of any dispute between the landlord and the tenant. We are an independent service provider who prepares unbiased reports to ensure that both parties involved are catered for. In order to have a safe tenancy agreement, it is inevitable to avoid getting an inventory service from a competent and experienced service provider like us. If you are a landlord or a tenant, you should always insist on having your agreement based on the condition of the property so as to avoid any case of disagreement at the time of exit from the property. Landlord-tenant disputes can effectively be avoided if only an inventory report is prepared by an independent service provider in the industry.

Hertfordshire Property Market

August 02, 2012 Bloggies by danny

Having been brought up in Hertfordshire I have seen big changes. My family always lived in the Hertfordshire region and we have always been involved in the property market, from letting agents to inventory companies.

Hertfordshire has seen big changes with inventory reporting over the last decade. Most importantly in Hertfordshire we have seen the acknowledgment that it is unsuitable for us as landlords or tenants to draw up an inventory report ourselves.

The most critical thing in an inventory agreement is that it is drawn up on the property prior to move in by a separate entity from the landlord, tenant or letting agent. This means instructing a separate and independent inventory company such as My Property Inventories. We are regulated by the Association Of Independent Inventory Clerks.

Hertfordshire Inventories and their benefits

August 01, 2012 Bloggies by danny

The benefits of an inventory report on your tenant occupied property cannot be understated. We have just completed another Hertfordshire Inventory report for a Hertfordshire based letting agency and they had this done as the property has been destroyed inside by the former tenants. The Hertfordshire landlord had not put in place a good inventory report with her former tenants. This resulted in the tenants getting off without having to pay the landlord any damages. This landlord will not let any other tenants move into her properties without an official third party inventory report in place.

Lets learn from her original mistakes and make sure to instruct a suitable inventory company in all tenant move ins.

The dispute is possible at the end of tenancy which means either party may suffer losses. For that purpose, going for a competent and highly trained professional inventory service provider would be the best option for you. Such are the professionals that will help you prepare an ideal inventory management report with all necessary information on the condition of the property right before renting it to a tenant.

Hire Independent Inventory Clerks

For several years that we have provided inventory services across the UK more especially the Hertfordshire, we have gained enormous experience in helping various landlords who have come under increasing pressure  from the legislated laws to prepare comprehensive reports on the condition of their properties before leasing them to tenants.  Property features, fittings and items in their current conditions are also included in the report to prevent disputes at the time of cancelling or ending a lease.

The independent inventory clerks will thus be tasked to carry out a property’s initial inventory before the tenant occupies the property, interim inventory from time to time to ascertain the condition of the house while the tenant is occupying the property, and check out inventory once the tenant intends to vacate the premises. All the inventories should be prepared to protect the interests of both parties without any bias. Following our level of experience and professionalism, our inventory clerks are responsible for the preparation of a detailed report describing everything as they are including the ceiling, floor, walls, furniture, doors and windows among other things. Photographs and even videos are also taken to ensure that whatever is recorded in the inventory report is accounted for and easily verified from the photos and videos taken.

Why You Need Hertfordshire Inventories By Our Independent Clerks

Our clerks are involved with daily preparation of inventory reports which has made them gain a lot of experience and expertise in production of these crucial documents that are truly helpful in dispute resolution once the renting period comes to an end. With a well prepared inventory, a dispute doesn’t need to get to tribunal as it can solve locally between the landlord and the tenant and of course with the intervention of our independent inventory clerks.

Many people have lost their property as a result of natural calamities such as fire, theft and floods. Such calamities are however insurable which means you can get full compensation for the damaged property as a result of the calamities. However this depends with the quality of an inventory report you prepare in advance to act as evidence document for you when making a claim to your insurer.

Some people opt for personal preparation of inventory reports but most of them admit that it is a hectic and time consuming exercise that needs to be done by professionals. It is therefore important to consider our independent inventory clerks who are unbiased to help you with the process thus saving you time, hassle and money in the long run.

Many people are today inclined into saving more due to the current economic situation. But savings can only be well realized if precautions are taken in advance to tackle of any uncertainty that may come later in time. While looking into investing in property, you need to prepare for unwanted twists. Maintenance of your property is as crucial as investing wisely.

With several possible hazards facing your investment, inventory service is necessary to help cater for such uncertainties. Your property may be robbed, damaged by the tenant occupying it or damaged by floods thus you risk losing your investment. But with the help of inventories, you can claim for compensation from your insurance company or have the tenant pay for the damages after it is ascertained that the damages are way beyond normal wear and tear.

Nothing is less meaningful as much as you took your penny to buy it. Everything thus needs to be properly recorded as part of your investment while preparing inventory reports. This is quite necessary more especially at the time of moving to another location. When hiring a moving company, they usually ask you for a rough estimate of all your properties so that they can determine the cost of moving your property and any other technical assistance that may be required. Having a well prepared and updated inventory report will thus help you in highlighting all the items in your property without any errors that may call for extra costs at the time of movement.

Sometimes we live in our homes way too long to recall all the items we own. This may be because, maybe we are not using the items or because, the items are piled up.

Turning your way to professional inventory listing is the perfect option that guarantees better results in the end with no cases of reported disputes to solve.
