If you are a new landlord, you may be asking yourself if you need to invest a good inventory and what the benefits are.
Inventories are highly important to the process of renting out a property. Inventory reports are the backbone to any disputes that may arise at the end of a tenancy agreement therefore it is important to ensure that you invest time into making a decent inventory checklist.
Landlords used to create their own inventory checklists to manage the inventory reports for their properties; however they are often inadequate. Investing in a good property inventory is both money and time worth spent especially for new landlords. A well-established inventory company or professional agent will provide high quality property inventories from creating a checklist, conducting thorough check-in and check-out reports with the support of digital photography and qualified inventory clerks to complete inventories on your behalf.
Becoming a landlord can be a very time consuming and stressful time especially if it is for a busy city such as Manchester or London, therefore investing into a reliable inventory company or professional agent can take the weight off of your shoulders and leave you to concentrate on other things such as further property investments.
Inventory companies work with both independent landlords and agencies to help make the whole process easier and with a broad knowledge of the local areas, what to look out for and key areas to check – you can trust that your inventory reports will be a strong contender should any disputes occur during a tenancy agreement.
