Video Inventories

Extra protection for landlords and property managers

ERS Property - Video Inventory ServiceA video inventory provides you with a comprehensive schedule of condition report with supporting high definition video that gives you irrefutable evidence to virtually eliminate any cause for dispute. Whilst tenancy deposit protection does not make inventories compulsory, in practice, they are essential.

It is important to obtain an accurate inventory at the start of the tenancy to help avoid time consuming and costly disputes with tenants over damage to a rental property. There is no better, or more cost effective, way of doing this than using our video inventory service.

As a letting or managing agent, by choosing us you:

  • can provide a truly independent inventory service
  • can provide a more professional service to your clients
  • enable your staff to concentrate on your core business which will save you time and money
  • will be following the government’s best practice guidelines to minimise the chance of a claim

We will attend the property and carry out a full inventory of all rooms and their contents that will be supported by high definition quality video.

Our core video inventory service includes:

  • recording a high definition quality video of all rooms and other areas of the property
  • the provision of a written inventory report in PDF format to support of the video footage
  • a hosted webpage showing the full video inventory footage complete with detailed voice audio
  • accurately recording in detail, all fixtures, fittings and furniture including a schedule of their condition
  • the recording of utility meter readings plus the manufacturer of all appliances, where possible to identify
  • a general appraisal of the cleanliness plus advising of any items that may need repairing or replacing
  • secure storage and long term backup of all media, including video footage and written inventories

We also provide supplementary packages such as a DVD recording of the inventory footage and a detailed assessment of smoke and CO alarms including video footage of them being tested.
