The Energy Performance Centre Inventory Management also known as Schedule of Condition for Letting homes is a complete record of the condition together with a list of all contents within a property.
The completed Home Inventory report can act as a Legal document in any disputes between Landlord and Tenant during or at the end of any tenancy agreement.
Digital Date Stamped Photographic evidence is provided with every inventory.
Who Needs a Domestic Home or Commercial Inventory?
Any Landlords letting properties or owners requiring verification or evidence of misuse.
Landlords are legally bound to join the Tenants Safeguard Scheme (TSS)
From 6 April 2007, it became compulsory for all Landlords to join a scheme that safeguards Tenant’s damage deposits. Where a dispute arises about allocation of a deposit that cannot be resolved, the scheme refers the dispute to its dispute resolution service. An independent adjudicator examines the facts and determines how the deposit should be allocated. An Inventory often called Schedule of the condition of the fabric and content of the building at the beginning and end of a tenancy is central to this process.
The Energy Performance Centre use eTech’s SMART Inventory software which gathers the data on an electronic PDA which in turn automatically create’s a ‘Check In’ and ‘Check Out’ report. Recording an inventory of the contents and the condition of the fabric of the Building as you conduct the assessment.
The system uses the PDA’s on-board camera to gather photographic evidence, supplemented with pre-formatted text options. A floorplan can also be created on the PDA which orientates the rooms descriptions in the inventory report.
Once The Energy Performance Centre Assessor has completed the assessment on his PDA, it is transmitted to eTech via Wi-Fi. The SMART Inventory report generates automatically and is published on-line to eTech’s Inventory Portal, where further amendments can be made by the Inventory Clerk if required.
