Terms and conditions

1. An inventory is prepared as a snapshot of the property and its contents at the time of the inspection. It is compiled as a fair and accurate record of the property’s internal condition and will include a list of furniture, fixtures, fittings and household effects. Items are visually identified but may not be identified by their original manufactured name, material used in the production, or the period produced.

2. Aside to Smoke alarms, Lighting, electrical appliances, machinery and other similar items will not be tested.

3. Towels, bed linen and other similar items will be recorded and inspected if they have been laundered. Mattresses will only be inspected where they are readily accessible and will not be thoroughly examined should the bed be made up.

4. Carpets, rugs and other floor coverings will be inspected to the extent that they are sufficiently clean so that stains, burns and other damage can be readily identified.

5. Pro-Inventories representatives will not undertake to move large or heavy items of furniture and will not check in inaccessible areas, such as items left in lofts, cellars, locked garages, etc. are, therefore, the responsibility of the property owner.

6. Every effort has been made to carefully check the property and its contents. However this report should not be used as a structural survey report.

7. Sofas & beds will not be opened or examined and will be assumed to be free from stains/marks/damage internally for the purposes of this inventory or Check In/Out.

8. Animals are not usually permitted in rented properties, but occasionally landlords will give permission. They will expect any damage internal or external to be made good, and any soft furnishings may need additional cleaning.

9. Blue tack nor picture hooks/nails should not be used on the walls and any damage caused may incur additional charges from the landlord, (i.e. deductions from deposits).

10. An additional charge will be applied when carrying out the Check-out procedure at the end of the Tenancy if any items have been moved to different rooms or any items listed on the Inventory that have been broken or mislaid should have been replaced with a similar item, otherwise deductions may be made.

11. Upon conducting an Inventory, check-in or check-out, payment must be made within 10 working days. A full electronic copy of the report will be emailed upon completion.

12. At the end of the tenancy, the original Inventory is re-checked and any discrepancies and/or variations are reported. This report will indicate where such deterioration might be considered as reasonable wear and tear, a maintenance issue, a cleaning issue, or requires the making good of areas.

The checkout report does not list everything in the property: it only comments on items where changes have occurred since check in and it should be read in conjunction with the original inventory.

13. The property must be vacated, all cleaning completed, and all personal possessions removed.
