Preparation of Inventory - An Inventory protects both a Landlord and Tenant in the case of a potential dispute. We highly recommend that each property has an inventory. We are happy for you to supply your own or alternatively we can arrange this on your behalf. (£150.00 INCL VAT)
We use totally independent professional inventory providers, the government are currently considering recommending that all Letting agents should outsource Inventories, and use an independent inventory provider so that they remain impartial.
Our Inventory provider, Pafena, (http://www.pafena.com/rental-property-services/) uses detailed reports with dated photographic images as this is one of the most up to date ways of providing an inventory. They are APIP accredited inventory providers with ARLA Propertymark and have been providing inventory reports since 2010.
Having a professional inventory and schedule of condition is essential in order to protect the interests of landlords, agents and tenants. Inventory issues are at the centre of a significant proportion of the deposit disputes dealt with by dispute resolution services. Quality of inventory provision varies greatly across the industry so what does using an APIP member mean to landlords and letting agents?
APIP members are qualified either through passing the Technical Award in Residential Inventory Management and Practice or through significant experience in the industry. The qualification comprises four units incorporating legal matters, health, safety and security, property management and inventory practice. Please see an example of the level of details as attached.
