Property Inventory

Renting property can be a risky and stressful business, for both landlords and tenants, and the provision of an inventory has long been regarded as best practice to resolve any disputes which may arise regarding damages or missing items at the end of a tenancy. But, a poorly prepared inventory could prove to be costly for the landlord, allowing the tenant to dispute deductions, which the landlord may feel are justified, leaving the landlord to bear the cost of returning the property to its’ former condition.

Impending legislation due to be introduced for a Tenancy Deposit Scheme in Scotland will significantly increase protection for tenants. A similar scheme is already in place in England, where the introduction has led to a significant increase in the number of tenants taking claims to arbitration.

Even where a property is let unfurnished, information needs to be retained concerning the condition of the permanent fixtures within the property, to ensure the landlords position is protected.

What is the answer?

Ensure you are prepared for the introduction of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme by using a professional, independent service to produce your inventory, prior to the tenancy.

EPC Glasgow can supply you with a quality inventory, prepared to nationally recognized professional standards, giving an accurate and detailed schedule of the contents, fixtures, fittings and condition of the property (including photographs). We will also carry out a further check at the end of the tenancy, if requested, and provide the landlord with a suitable report. This unbiased approach protects both parties, and in the long term saves time, stress and money.

EPC Glasgow employ experienced professional staff holding NFOPP (National Federation of Property Professionals) qualifications, so you can be confident that the quality of our inventory and check-out service can be relied upon in the event of any dispute over damages.

Our inventory service can be tailored to suit your individual needs, and we will be delighted to provide you with a quote.
