Condition reports / inventory service

 

It has become even more imperative that when letting out a property, a schedule of condition and/or inventory be supplied to your tenants.

Without this document a landlord may have no legal entitlement in the event of a dispute to make deductions from a tenants deposit at the end of the tenancy. Following the introduction of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme in April 2007, when Part 6 of the Housing Act 2004 finally came into effect, this became even more important.

This entails a visit to the property in order to compile a comprehensive report on the contents included in the tenancy together with a schedule of condition. Once this has been agreed with the tenant it becomes a binding document between landlord and tenant and forms the basis on which damage or dilapidation may be assessed at the end of a tenancy. Where applicable this report will include a check of keys returned as well as water, gas and electricity meter readings.

Don’t forget we include this service at no extra cost as part of our full management option!

We are more than happy to offer this service to our valuable Let Only and Rent Collection landlords and can offer a very competitive scale of fees appropriate to size of property and depth of report required. Please contact us for details.
