An inventory is a concise and detailed list of the contents, fittings and fixtures of a house, flat or office that is being let. This includes everything from the carpets and curtains to all the furnishings (if furnished). An Inventory provides a clear concise snapshot of the property at the time of the inventory completion with digital photographs provided to support the report. The inventory must be carried out by a third party, independent inventory specialist otherwise it will be considered bias and will not stand up in a court of law when needed to be relied upon.
A check in report is prepared at the beginning of each new tenancy. This report should be carried out immediately before the new occupants move into the let property, where possible on the same day. In order to conduct a check in the original inventory report must already be prepared, each item on the original inventory will be checked, it’s presence/absence and condition noted. Keys and meters are also checked and the readings are recorded. The tenant will then sign the report to confirm its accuracy. Our Team produce photographic check ins to support our reports. On the day of check in the property must be in a suitable condition to be let and all maintenance and cleaning should already have been carried out.
An interim inspection is made part way through a tenancy and looks at the condition of the property, its contents and any issues there may be. It can also be used to identify if any of the property requires repair, restoration or maintenance or is in need of decoration. Photographs will accompany this inspection.
A check out report is compiled at the end of the tenancy, once the tenant has moved out and prior to any cleaners, builders etc entering the property. We compile a report that goes through the condition and contents of the property against the original inventory and check in reports, whilst allowing for fair wear and tear. Meter readings will be gathered and the correct number of keys recorded. This report is also photographic.
Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detector

For only £70* we will come and test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors within your property. This will involve one of our fully trained professionals with their equipment testing for functionality using a controlled dose of test smoke and carbon monoxide as well as testing for power.

EPC’s are required whenever a building is rented out, sold or built.

This can be carried out along side an Inventory Report. 1 – 2 bedroom properties are only £80, 3 – 4 bedroom properties are £100 and 5 – 7 bedroom properties are £130.

* This will cover the full functionality testing of up to 3 alarm/detectors within 1 property. If we are able to carry out a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm/detector functionality test on any occasion or date for any fee or included within our services in anyway, we cannot be held liable in any way if these do not operate on another date properly in the event of an emergency when they needed to be relied upon in any way as an alert etc. A functionality test would only prove that on that date and time the smoke or carbon monoxide alarm/detector does respond, or not, to a dose of smoke or CO well beyond the lethal range. We accept no liability in any way. The presence and appropriate working order of these alarms is the law and they must be tested on a regular basis for their continued power and working order by all concerned parties such as the landlord, their agent, the tenant and/or our instructing principle. This law is under The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm England regulations 2015. Under this law you must provide a working and tested smoke alarm/detector on every floor of the property and a carbon monoxide alarm/detector in every room that contains a solid fuel combustion appliance. Power and/or functionality tests must also be carried out on every new tenancy by law, via the Tenant / Instructing Principle / Landlord. As stated, we accept no responsibility whatsoever for any testing of, recording of missing or present and/or working order of any such smoke alarm/detectors and or carbon monoxide detectors within a property following a report or visit from our clerks. Where smoke alarms and CO Detectors are tested this is for power only and should not be taken to mean that the alarms are in full working order. No responsibility is taken for any damage or malfunction occurring during the testing of such alarms.
