Welcome to West Kent Inventory Services
West Kent Inventory Services are based in Kent and service letting agencies, property management companies and private landlords. Offering a quick, efficient and accurate, Inventory, Check-in and Check-out service for our clients.
The Inventory is binding document that provides a fair and accurate written record of the condition and contents of a property at the beginning of a tenancy. This vital document will list the condition of the property, fixtures & fittings and decorative order; it includes descriptions of walls, ceilings, floors, carpets, paintwork, light fittings, woodwork, windows etc. Accurate and well-documented inventories are very time consuming to prepare but essential to safe guard your property. Digital photographs will be supplied where necessary. All inventories are carried out in accordance to the AIIC guidelines.
At the start of the tenancy we will inspect the property and compare it to the master inventory. Any variations will be noted and a schedule of condition and cleanliness will be provided and signed by the tenant. Meter reading will be taken and keys listed and handed over to the tenant.
At then end of the tenancy a comparison is made with the original inventory. The check-out report will detail all changes to the state of the property including cleanliness and any damage, meter readings and all recommendations will be noted on our check-out report.
West Kent Inventory Services can provide:
With the introduction of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme, where tenants deposits or bonds must be safeguarded by government authorised schemes, it is increasingly important to have an accurate documented evidence of the contents and condition of the property, for both the landlords and tenants alike. Whilst an inventory is not a legal requirement for this, the government wants to see the continued use of inventories as standard good practice to reduce the potential of a dispute at the end of the tenancy. The use of inventories can significantly reduce the incidence of dispute at the end of a tenancy and, where disputes do arise, provide the evidence base to make a resolution much easier either though the TDS or the Courts.
