Inventories just got better with Anthony Davies & HDVi
Having spent twenty years as a letting agent and trained inventory clerk I have always been frustrated with how an old fashioned inventory is prepared and presented to tenants.
Under the new deposit legislations it has become increasingly difficult for a landlord to make any claim for a deposit protected with one of the approved bodies, The Deposit Protection Servce, The Tenancy Deposit Service or MyDeposits.
Old style inventories are typically a list of what is at the property with some photographs to back up the descriptions. The difficulties with this format is that it becomes subjective to who has put the report together, each photograph must be signed and dated, the inventory needs to be updated every time a tenant moves, the process is expensive and usually requires an outsourced specialist invenotry company to carry out a check in and check out which is more cost. In addition meter readings can be missed and the document cannot always be relied on as full evidence, the cost is usually £125 - £250 dependent on the size of the property.
The Solution - Anthony Davies High Definition Video Inventory
A simple product, before the tenant moves in we prepare a full HD Video Inventory of the property, usually between 15-30 minutes talk over presentation giving an accurate detail of the condition of the property. The Video is presented to the tenant's on a branded USB, together with all the other move in documentation. The Video is time and date stamped into the presentation and an average 20 minute video typically holds 40,000 stills of the property and is exceptional should it be required for referral at a later date.
Video Inventory is fast becoming the preferred option for modern agents. Using the HDVi system we have already seen a 95% uptake from landlord's, tenant's really like it and the properties are coming back in excellent condition, with disputes being settled at speed due to the accuracy of the inventory.
Cost: £145.00 + VAT - simple
