How do I get my FREE property inventory?
The system enables landlords to create a bespoke form, containing a list of rooms and contents. With the advent of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme it is increasingly important that a landlord understands how to prepare a property inventory that gives a full and clear description of their rental property in case of any disputes.
The Property Inventory software creates a form that canbe viewed as a PDF, downloaded and printed off. Any inventories created using the software, can be saved and easily edited and updated to create future inventories for each new tenancy.
Once a landlord has added their basic details by signing up, these are stored by the Property Manager and can be used to pre-populate a whole range of other forms needed by a landlord to manage their lettings business. These include a Tenancy Agreement or if they are taking a rental deposit the prescribed information required by Section 213 of the 2004 Housing Act.
Creating a property inventory form
Once a landlord has generated and printed off the Inventory they will then need to record a schedule of condition prior to the commencement of any tenancy. This involves noting down the condition of each of the items recorded within the Inventory. This schedule of condition will have to be agreed with the tenant prior to the ‘handover of the rental property and before the commencement of the tenancy. The landlord should provide each tenant with a copy of the property inventory and all copies should be signed and dated prior to ‘handover’. A landlord may want to consider using photographic or video evidence to support the written Inventory.
