A Check In should be carried out at the start of any new tenancy. During the Check In, the Inventory Make will be checked through ensuring that everything is accurate. Amendments and additions will be made where necessary and the inventory updated (if the original as been compiled by IMO), as will the photographs. A Schedule of Condition (summary of the condition of the property) is drawn then up. Utility meter readings are taken. If the original report was compiled by another company then a separate, stand alone document will be produced to stand alongside the original inventory.
