The inventory is a detailed description of each room in the property as well as the contents and fixtures and fittings. It’s a way of documenting everything in the property and its general condition, with tenants asked to agree and sign the inventory.
Tenants need to ‘check in’ when they move in to a property for the first time. This usually consists of either the landlord or a professional check-in clerk handing over the keys, testing alarms, testing all appliances and signing the inventory.
The check-out is when tenants hand over the keys at the end of a tenancy.
The landlord or professional check-out clerk will check the inventory and see if the property is in the same condition as it was when the check-in was conducted, minus general wear and tear.
Tenants are obliged to go through the check-in and check-out process. The landlord only needs to attend if they are doing it themselves. We always recommend using a professional clerk as it can be hard for landlords to prove any problems caused by tenants, thus making it more difficult for landlords to withhold a portion of the deposit to cover damages.
A professional clerk makes sure that everything is done by the book and provides peace of mind for both landlords and tenants.
When you purchase check-in/check-out and inventory services with us, we send a professional to perform the check-in, take photos of the condition of the property and go through the inventory with the incoming tenant. All inventories include a bespoke report stating the condition of the property, which is then used during the check-out process to make sure everything aligns.

Having an inventory is a way of documenting the contents of a property and its initial condition before the tenant moves in.
A check-in is a handover of the property to tenants before they move in. The person conducting the check-in will give the keys to the tenants and go through the essentials, such as the location of electricity and gas meters etc.
A check-out is a handover from the tenants at the end of the tenancy. There is a review of the condition of the property, making sure that it aligns with the initial inventory and that there has been no excessive damage.
