Fees and Services

Fees are based on a percentage of the monthly rent of the property, for example, the fee for an inventory for an unfurnished house rented at £750.00 per month will be 12% of that figure i.e. £90.00. 

 

Minimum fee is £80.00 per job except for mid term inspections which are a set price. VAT is not charged.

 

Please see the table below for a summery of all fees. Please also contact us with details for a quote if needed.

About our reports

 

We use InventoryBase, a software programme made especially for property inventory professionals. Our reports are clear, concise, accurate and are accessed via a link emailed to the client when a report has been completed.

 

Referenced, time stamped colour photographs are included as standard. All keys are listed and photographed, meter readings taken, and smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms are tested along with light bulbs, extractor fans and cooker hoods. Please get in touch if you would like to see a sample report. 

 

CHECK IN: whether meeting with the tenants at check in or not, a report link is emailed to the tenants via InventoryBase on the tenancy start date. The tenants have 10 days to check and sign online (with a reminder after 7 days) and the final report is then available for access online by the tenant and client throughout the tenancy. Clients are also able to download reports as PDFs if they prefer to deal with a check in their own way. If Ark Inventories are also meeting with tenants at check in, the full process is explained to them along with any issues noted during the inventory. Meter readings are taken and keys are safely handed over with a signed declaration obtained and emailed to the client.

 

MID TERM INSPECTIONS: completed quickly and efficiently after which a report is sent to the client with information regarding the general condition of the property plus any issues observed, or raised by the tenant, at the inspection. A couple of photos are taken of each room to be included in the report with the permission of the tenant.

 

CHECK OUT: the property is fully inspected against the check in inventory and a new delapidation report is emailed to the client with referenced time stamped colour photographs along with liability recommendations and meter readings. If the tenant is present at the inspection, all keys are collected and delivered back to the client.

 

We are happy to arrange any appointments direct with the tenant if needed. Please call Sarah on 07867 413484 if you think we may be able to help with your inventory requirements.
