What is inventory management? Inventory management covers all the processes and reports used to protect landlords and property professionals against change from throughout the tenancy. It provides the critical evidence required to ensure landlords or their representatives can recover costs against a deposit lodged by the tenant or against a zero-deposit replacement insurance. The reports form part of the contract between landlord and tenant, ensuring both parties are kept up to date.
No Letting Go’s Black Country property inventory services provides these critical reports. These consist of: inventory and schedule of condition; check in/check out (dilapidation report) and property visits (mid term inspection).
Safety Inspections and Smoke Detector Installation
New regulations were introduced in October 2015 to the private rented sector, meaning that every landlord is now required to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on each floor of a property and provide evidence that all alarms are tested and working at the start of each tenancy. Fines for non-compliance are a maximum of £5,000. No Letting Go’s property inventory services in the Black Country will ensure you do not receive a fine, by checking that your alarms are in the correct location and are functioning when the tenants move in. We will also install new ones if necessary. All No Letting Go reports have a safety section that will guarantee you meet the smoke and carbon monoxide regulations.

Property Visits and Inspections
Property visits are the mid-term inspections and subsequent reports carried out by No Letting Go or by the agent using Kaptur software. These inspections occur typically every 3-4 months during the tenancy. These check that the property is being maintained as agreed, ensures the tenants are looking after the property as detailed in the contract, checks on the wear and tear of the property and makes sure that the tenants are satisfied.
The inspections are invaluable! The documents written up during the checks are critical pieces of evidence protecting you against section 21 6A notices, or as evidence against ongoing tenant complaints, especially used to challenge claims at the end of a tenancy.
No Letting Go’s Black Country property inventory services will provide these visits and subsequent reports.
Legionella Risk Assessments
To guarantee the health and safety of all staff, tenants and members of the public, the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 imposes a legal duty on all managing agents and landlords. This was later updated in 2014 to include all residential properties containing water systems. If anyone breaches this act, a crime is deemed to have been committed.
Therefore, a risk assessment must be carried out to identify and assess the exposure to legionella bacteria from water systems on the premises. This will inform landlords and agents of any precautionary measures that need to be taken. The duty holder is responsible for ensuring this risk assessment is carried out.
No Letting Go’s property inventory services in the Black Country provide these risk assessments. All inspectors are City and Guilds qualified and will provide clear, concise reports, explaining exactly what action a landlord needs to take, if any, to meet recommended safety requirements and inform tenants of their obligations.
