When it comes to landlord and tenant disputes, you can settle them much quicker and easier with our check-in inventory reports. At Professional Inventory Management Services Ltd, in Lincoln, our fully trained clerks are available to create reports that confirm the date the tenants took possession of the property, meter readings, and keys etc. When this is carried out in conjunction with an inventory for an Inventory/check-in (highly recommended) the tenants will be introduced to the property with a formal tour, with observations and comments about each area being pointed out.
The comments listed on the reports will include facts that inform tenants about the property. This may be something along the lines of ‘this room is newly painted’, ‘the boiler and central heating systems works like this’, or ‘the property has been professionally cleaned’. In addition to this, the check-in will consist of all the items of the inventory, except for descriptions and observations of individual items. We include approximately 10-20 overview photos in each room for this report. In a deposit dispute situation, a check-in report without an inventory could only defend against a key issue or dispute over meter readings. This report is delivered the same day that we visit the property.
Landlords who opt to use the check-in report without a valid inventory may potentially be allowing tenants to damage or steal from their property. The landlord will have little or no recourse in making a claim against the tenant’s deposit as they did not have an independent and impartial inventory detailing the property’s condition and contents.
For a landlord to be able to prove that a tenant has damaged or stolen from the property, they must be able to show evidence of the time of check-in and check-out. This will describe and show what the property was like before and after the tenants moved in, proving any damages or items that have gone missing during the tenancy. Without this proof, there is practically no way to show that the damaged or missing items were not existing before the tenants took occupation.

Called them out to do an inventory and check-in on one of my properties after a horrendous mess up with an Agent. Not only did they do it properly but it was done and emailed to me within 40 minutes of being completed. Im still waiting on one from my Agent after 4 weeks!!!. Worth the money and cheaper than agents
Had a superb experience with this company. The inventory is very thorough and detailed . The best I have seen . They are very professional and reliable . Worth every penny x thanks guys
PiMS have been a breath of fresh air to deal with. We were impressed by the amount of detail included in their reports. The customer service has been exemplary. Many thanks
Very professional .... couldn't believe how efficient .... was also pleased how they did a copy of the inventory in polish for my polish tenant ... it took away all the language barrier..... wouldn't hesitate to re use this company .
Came out same day we called, completed inventory and then checked tenant in. We had the paperwork signed and returned by the evening. Couldn't fault at all. Amazing in-depth inventory with HD photos and forensic measurements, polite and knowledgeable clerk. Best inventory we've ever had done in the uk with any of our lettings. Thanks PiMS
Highly professional and really prompt service. I was totally reassured that this stage of re-letting my property would be dealt with swiftly & smoothly and they didn't fail to deliver. I recommend that all that are in tenancy services make a very wise decision and use PIMS to avoid any unnecessary and costly situations that can & do often arise.
Wow. Now that's what I call an inventory. Detailed, forensic and delivered the same day. In Hd. Every inch of the property covered. Lovely clerk too. Polite, knowledgeable and professional. Thanks PiMS
Emma was very nice and professional. Property was checked and inspected quick and thoroughly. I am happy knowing that an independent company is backing me up with my tenancy. They really CARE. Their approach and personal treatment was spotless. 5 stars positive feedback
I needed an inventory on my 5 bed property. Ruth came out and meticulously recorded all details of my property in a 260 page report with 800 photos in HD. The report was emailed to me and also sent to my tenant. My tenant could iopen it and read it going through the prooperty and could then remotley sign it. I didnt need to come up from Surrey to do the check in or anything. Sorted out there and then in the most exceptional and professional manner. The report is also tracked and stored securely. PiMS are the best inventory company I've seen in Lincs. Will only use PiMS from now on. Thanks ladiesLandlord
Fantastic result. Agent said I shouldnt bother to claim but I stuck to my guns and with the check out report Pims did for me I challenged the deposit return myself. Despite paying my agent to do that! Im pleased I did, the report was so indepth and unchallengeable that it was straight forward and the money was with me within 6 days. Now I can repair ther damage the tenants did and re-let, but not with that agent.
