Inventory & Schedule of Condition
This entails the compilation and detailed record of the contents and fittings at the property and to be included in the tenancy together with a condition schedule for each item. Once this has been agreed and signed for by the tenant this becomes a binding document and forms the basis on which damage and dilapidations may be assessed at the termination of the tenancy.
This service will include digital photography where accessible and a record of gas and electric meter readings.
This entails attending the property on the commencement date to meet the tenant and to go through the inventory and schedule of condition on an item by item basis in order to agree the details and to sign the documents and obtain a receipt for keys passed to the tenant when applicable.
This is conducted at the termination of the tenancy and involves attendance at the property with the original agreed and signed inventory and schedule of condition in order to go through the document on an item by item basis and prepare a comparison record report upon which cleaning, damage and dilapidations may be assessed.
This includes gas & electricity meter readings, tenant forwarding address and a digital photographic record if appropriate.
In certain circumstances and where appropriate an inventory and schedule of condition may be updated when attending to do a Check Out. This applies when a new tenancy is imminent and where ATD have prepared the initial documents.
Management or Periodic Visits
A tenancy agreement usually gives by appointment or notice a right for a routine visit during the course of a tenancy to establish whether there are any problems or difficulties. This generally covers cleanliness, general condition of décor, glazing, gardens or yards, and any relevant resulting recommendations for landlord and tenant.
