Landlord Inventory Check-in Reports
Helping you create an inventory to protect your property
An inventory report is defined as the “Production of the schedule of condition”, in reality this is a detailed description of the condition of each room and its fixtures and content, as well as extensive photos.
What we cover
A check-in is the handover of the property to the tenants at the beginning of the tenancy, which involves a review of the inventory on site with the tenants. A check-out is the handover of the property from the tenants at the end of a tenancy, which involves a review of the state of condition, compared to any initial inventory. If you don’t have an ingoing inventory (created at the start of the tenancy), a good check out report will still be evidence of the condition the property was left in and also if the tenant broke any clauses in the tenancy agreement i.e. not allowed to keep pets. Whilst without an ingoing inventory it will be harder to prove evidence for deposit deductions, a check out report without an ingoing inventory is still better than no check out done at all.
Inventory Check-In Report Overview
Jigsaw always recommends creating an inventory report and having this signed by all parties (landlord and tenants) on the move in date. As every deposit taken by a landlord must be registered with an approved scheme, giving the tenants right to dispute any deductions, a landlord must protect their asset by creating proof of the initial and end condition of the property.
