What is residential inventory management? 

Letting a residential property isn’t just about finding a tenant. Property agents in inventory management protect both the landlord and tenant by detailing the condition and contents of the property at the start of the tenancy which can be used as a comparison when the tenancy comes to an end. 

Inventory training for residential property

Training in inventory management can help you develop the key skills needed to create comprehensive, accurate and detailed inventory documents for residential properties that can play a crucial part in tenancy agreements and disputes.
