Inventories

This is a vital part of any lettings service and we recommend to all landlords to ensure that they have an in depth inventory and schedule of condition report carried out. Without one, the likelihood of retaining any deposit in any dispute is negligible.

We offer this service and utilise professional industry approved inventory software which allows landlords/tenants to access and approve their inventories securely online.
