Protecting your property investment

Protect your property with an independent and professional inventory. As a landlord, your property is a valuable asset. For a small sum of money, you can help protect your investment by having a thorough inventory for each tenancy. An independent inventory that is professionally compiled together with a professional check out at the end of the tenancy will help to sort out any disputes that might arise.

The tenant will be assured that the company producing the report is unbiased and that any assessments are independent and fair. Our clerks have a wealth of experience visiting all types of properties on a daily basis, they are able to assess damage, maintenance issues and wear and tear.

An inventory prepared by Urban Inventories becomes a living document of your property, i.e. once you have an inventory prepared by us we will keep updating this document for each new tenancy. This means that you only pay for an inventory once for the first tenancy and for any subsequent tenancies we update the inventory for a “check in fee” which is less than the inventory cost. As we have a wealth of industry knowledge you can rest assured that you will have continuity of reporting unlike other inventory companies that may come and go.


A detailed inventory has always been required as a matter of best practice however with recent changes in legislation all tenancies should, New Housing Act 2004 relating to the Tenancy Deposit Scheme regulations now firmly highlight how essential a correct inventory and schedule of condition is, however this is not the only document required as if at the end of the tenancy should there be a dispute between Landlord / Agent and Tenant , the check in report will also be crucial to deciding on fair wear and tear or damage.

It is strongly recommended as best practice & common practice now to employ a professional governed body or reputable Inventory provider to carry out the report and procedure, this again is to safe guard the landlord & tenant and takes away conflict of interest between both parties. It is not simply a matter of cost, it is simply a matter of assurance.

The document is agreed by both landlord and tenant and forms part of the contract between landlord and tenant. Our reports have been used in conjunction with claims being made on both sides and have stood up in court.

A full schedule of condition is produced at check-in detailing the cleanliness of the property, logging all meters and keys and listing any appliances with model numbers and manuals, this service has been extended to smoke alarms due to recent legislation changes and is offered free of charge. A walk-through of the property will be conducted by Urban Inventories staff allowing the tenant an opportunity to raise any amendments or concerns. Finally, the schedule of condition and inventory can be digitally signed by the tenant or their representative before keys are handed over.

Simultaneous Inventory and Check-in

Urban Inventories are able to provide a simultaneous inventory check-in service for all properties on the day the tenancy commences We understand there are often many pressures on timings at the start of a tenancy and so we know it is important to be able to provide a ‘one’ visit service so as not to delay the process any further or suffer unnecessary costs.

Check Out Reports

At the end of the tenancy, our team of clerks will compare the condition of the property against the original inventory compiled at the start of the tenancy, noting any changes. This can either be carried out with another inventory service provider’s report or our own. Each room in the report will have a complete overview, photographs and a detailed description of any changes that have occurred against the inventory that was agreed at the start of the tenancy. The report will note all final meter readings and keys returned will be checked against the list as provided at the check-in also testing of alarms such as smoke & Co2. The Urban Inventories clerk will take forwarding contact details for outgoing tenants where possible.
