This report is produced after visiting the vacant property to ensure that an accurate end-of tenancy comparison is made.
The property and its contents including decor, fixtures, fittings, furnishings and soft furnishings are checked against the old inventory and check-in report. Any discrepancies or variations to the original inventory such as cleaning deficiencies, damage, missing or additional items are listed, together with excessive wear and the condition of gardens/terraces where applicable.
Meter readings will be noted as well as a full list of keys and the tenants forwarding address if the tenant is present at check-out.
We always take into account ʻfair wear and tearʼ when conducting our check-out reports.
Overview of what a Check Out report is:
The Check Out report will contain the same initial information as an Inventory:
– Inspection Conditions, Keys, Meters, Cleanliness Overview, Safety and Inspection Areas.
To complete the report we go from room to room item to item and compare what the Inventory report states to what the item current condition is.
If there is a change in condition of an item both positive and negative, it is detailed as an OBSERVATION. A positive could be walls repainted (with Landlord permission in writing), a higher level of cleaning presented, light bulbs that where missing on now replaced.
If though items are missing or none Landlord items are left in the property by tenants this is again noted as an OBSERVATION.
The OBSERVATIONS and the supporting EVIDENTIAL photographs and notes in the report can be used by the Landlord to make a claim against the tenants deposit if required.
If you have had a poor quality “Inventory & Check In” or none at all; or one that was not impartial – Landlord or Agent completed it. These facts will seriously undermine the strength of the Check Out report and damage or even dismiss any chance the Landlord has of making a claim against the tenants deposit.

We have been working with Excalibur Inventories for a few years now and would like to thank them for their work. We appreciate the quality of service you deliver to the Stonehouse Estates team, our Landlords and tenants. Lucy and Francesca are very responsive to our requests especially in cases where unexpected changes occur . As a very busy letting agent I would have no hesitation in recommending Niven and the rest of the Excalibur Inventories team.
Excalibur Inventories have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I was impressed by the amount of detail included in their reports, and my clients have feedback the same. The customer service has been exemplary and all bookings are processed efficiently and confirmed in writing – a very useful touch for large agencies with multiple bookings.
As a company, we are happy to use Excalibur inventories due to their flexibility, good quality of inventory with clear descriptions and photos, and the quick timescales they can be presented to us and then our clients. Highly recommended!
