The Inventory

Unless you instruct us not to do so, our lettings team will arrange for an inventory to be prepared and checked at the beginning of the tenancy by an independent inventory clerk who will make a separate charge for this service.

Approximately three months before the end of the tenancy is due to expire we will contact you and the tenant to ascertain whether you and they wish to extend the tenancy, and if appropriate

  1. Negotiate terms for the tenancy to be renewed, including providing you with a market appraisal.
  2. Prepare documentation relating to the renewal or extension and obtain signatures from both parties.
