The Property Redress Scheme is an easy to use consumer redress (ombudsman)
scheme for Property Agents and Professionals.
It is essential for Landlords to protect their valuable investments by having a professional, independent and impartial inventory report.
Prima Inventories compile a comprehensive detailed report supported with photographs on the general condition and cleanliness of a property, including fixtures, fittings, furnishings and contents. This report provides an accurate record of the property at the start and end of a tenancy.
Although it is not a legal requirement to have an inventory report, it is a legal document which serves as evidence in a deposit scheme arbitration case or indeed in court.
Our Check-In service provides for
an independent, professional and impartial inventory clerk to be present when a tenant checks into the property.
It enables the tenant to agree or comment on the accuracy of the inventory before signing for the keys. Meter readings with photographs are also recorded in the inventory.
A Check-Out is necessary when a tenant vacates the property to compare its condition with the Inventory that was agreed at the Check-In. This report would cover possible damage to the property, its cleanliness and any missing or damaged items, allowing for fair wear and tear. The Check-Out may be carried out independently or in the presence of the tenant. The report will also recommend any residual action that may be required by the landlord regarding damages, cleanliness or discrepancies.
THE MID-TERM REPORT
It is desirable for a property to be inspected
at an agreed time during a tenancy to assess
the condition of the property at that time.
This report supported with photographs would include any variations in the Inventory and check if the tenant has
contravened any conditions of the tenancy
such as smoking or unauthorised pets etc.
The report would also alert the landlord to any
maintenance requirements that may be required
either during or at the end of the tenancy.
