If you take deposits for your properties then you
will need to have in place a thorough professional inventory. Deposit schemes are reluctant to award any of the deposit to
the landlord, even when damage has occured in the property, the problem is proving that it was done by the tenant, even in
cases where time and date stamped photos have been used in inventories, deposit dispute schemes still award against the landlord.
Our inventory service follows a methodical procedure using both Hi- Definition Video a methodical procedure and
a comprehensive written report ,which also takes care of check in, interim checks and check out procedures. All details
of the property and tenants are logged.
We can also prepare inventory for furnished properties.
