With the advent of Deposit Schemes back in 2007 the emphasis has very much shifted onto a landlord being able to prove that he or she is entitled to make a claim against a tenant. A professional Inventory and Schedule of Condition, rich with digital photographs, and signed by the tenant is crucial to this process.
Typically, a proper inventory and schedule of condition will run to 15 plus pages and be produced in duplicate, so that both parties end up with an agreed copy. We cannot emphasise enough the importance of using an inventory and schedule of condition. It should be signed and dated by the Tenant, at the commencement of the lease.
Our reports conform to standard AIIC guidelines therefore it’s logical to outsource to a valid, trustworthy and professional inventory company.
The benefits of having a professional and independent inventory report, conducted by Wellington Parker means you will receive a comprehensive report backed up by photographic evidence; tenants are more likely to maintain your property knowing that impartial evidence endorses your report; your valuable time is saved by outsourcing; signed evidence reduces court appearances.
We are continuously updating our reports to reflect changes in legislation.
