What is a property inventory report and why is it important?

Renting a property can be a significant investment for both landlords and tenants, and it's important to have a clear understanding of the condition of the property at the start of the tenancy.

This is where the report comes in.

When you move into your new dream home, it is highly recommended to get an independent Property inventory completed that gives a true reflection of the property you are about to move into. And of course, your end-of-tenancy date always comes around quicker than you would expect, so to ensure no unwanted delays with your next move and the smooth return of your deposit, you will need a follow-up end-of-tenancy Property Inventory Report when you leave.

Here, we'll explain what a property inventory report is, why it's important, and how it can help to prevent disputes between landlords and tenants.

What is a property inventory report and why do I need one?

A Property Inventory Report is a crucial document that covers all the details of what is in your property and crucially what condition and state of repair both the items and interior fabric of your property is in. These documents can become very important in ensuring you are able to fully claim back your deposit when you reach your end of tenancy.

Regardless of how well you maintain your property, a natural decline in the condition of your property and its contents is inevitable. Some wear and tear is unavoidable and landlords need to account for this. While tenants are of course liable for breakages, any items that are now missing or damages above the scope of wear and tear, having completed a detailed and high-quality Property Inventory can protect you and help avoid any claims or disputes for damages to the property itself or the furniture within it.

Effectively you are getting a ‘check in’ document and then a ‘check out’ report and comparing the two to avoid any potential disputes. Such disputes arise when there is a question from the landlord that the property has deteriorated above reasonable wear and tear due to a tenant's poor maintenance or misuse.

What does the property inventory report involve?

The Property Inventory Report will be completed by one of our experienced and trustworthy assessors who will provide a detailed report on the condition of the interior of the property, focussing on fixtures, fittings and decor.

Alongside this, the report will list all furniture that is included within the property and again, full notes on its condition and any damages.

At this stage, before the tenancy begins, meter readings are also taken and recorded in the document.

As part of this process, it is essential that the tenant or tenants agree with this record of the property's condition and contents. Any points of disagreement must be raised at this time so that they can be amended if necessary as this ‘check in’ document will be referred to again at the end of tenancy when you complete the ‘check out’ process.

The report should be specific and avoid any general statements where possible. For example, if a dining table has scratches, then the number, size and severity should all be noted. A ‘table with some scratches’ would not be helpful when referring back during the 'check out' process. Specifics here make all the difference to a clear and useful report

Each room should be covered in the report and when reading your document, you should always double check for any item, flaw or even room that may have accidentally been omitted.

With appliances, a make and model number should be included so if there are any disputes in the future, there is a record of the equipment in question and its potential value.

It is also worth noting that there is a difference between the physical condition of your property and contents to the cleanliness of them. If items are unclean, this can be noted on the ‘check in’ report again so that there is a fair comparison when the ‘check out’ document is produced.

Essentials of property leases | Check-in to check-out inventories

In the realm of property leasing, an inventory, often referred to as a schedule of conditions, serves as a comprehensive record detailing the state of a property at the commencement of a tenancy. Crafted by an independent and accredited clerk, this detailed report encompasses photographic evidence, meticulously cataloguing each room, fittings, furnishings, and cleaning standards. Additionally, it captures meter readings and plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the interests of both landlords and tenants. As part of the check-in process, new tenants receive a preliminary inventory, initiating a seven-day window for review and comments. Subsequently, the final inventory report is completed, forming an integral component of the check-in report. Furthermore, a check-out, conducted at the lease conclusion, evaluates the property's condition about the initial inventory, addressing maintenance concerns and assessing cleanliness standards. Even in the absence of an ongoing inventory, a well-documented check-out report serves as vital evidence for property conditions and potential breaches of tenancy agreements, offering valuable insights for deposit deductions.

What is the purpose of a property inventory report?

Its purpose is to protect both landlords and tenants in case of disputes over damages or missing items at the end of the tenancy. Having that report helps to ensure that any deposit deductions are fair and reasonable, and it can also help to prevent disputes from arising in the first place.

It's important to have a property inventory report carried out by an independent third party, such as a professional inventory clerk or an estate agent. This ensures that the report is impartial and accurate, and helps to avoid disputes over the accuracy of the report.

If there is no property inventory report, it can lead to disputes between landlords and tenants, and it may be difficult to resolve any issues that arise at the end of the tenancy.

Can I do my own inventory check?

While it's possible to do your inventory check , it's generally recommended to use an independent third party, such as an inventory clerk or estate agent. This is because doing your inventory check can be time-consuming, and it requires knowledge and experience to ensure that the inventory is comprehensive and accurate.

Using an independent third party to carry out the property inventory report can help to avoid disputes over the accuracy of the report or inventory, and it ensures that all parties are protected.
