Skribes offer 5 key services to landlords:
Landlords and letting agents regularly experience issues when tenants check out. What was the condition of the property when the tenant moved in and what is the condition now? How should the tenants’ deposit be apportioned fairly? Who is to blame? Do we have any evidence to show this in the event of a dispute? Are there any items within the property missing or damaged? What needs to be put right before the next tenant can move in? What level of clean is required and to what areas? Are there any decoration or maintenance issues to address? At Skribes we recognize that dealing with the end of a tenancy is often the most stressful part of the job and aim to make the process as smooth as possible for all parties involved.
Our main role is to ensure that you stay on the right side of the law and to stop deposit disputes with tenants. However we also play a part in ensuring the property is ready for the next tenancy quickly and easily.

Often the service provided by inventory clerks has a direct impact on the service provided by the landlord or letting agent. Poor quality inventory clerks can affect the number of deposits being disputed, whether disputes are won, and how quickly deposits can be apportioned and this in turn effects whether landlords and tenants are happy with the service they have received as well as causing more work and hassle for the landlord or letting agent. Check out reports that take days to be returned affect the speed at which the property can be re-let costing landlords and agents in lost rent. Poor quality check out reports can result in tenants being unhappy with the property condition when they check in causing them to be more worried about their deposit at check out, not a great first impression either. At Skribes we pride ourselves on our quality and speed. We do this by providing totally transparent, independent, unbiased and comprehensive inventory reports including photographic evidence and date stamps that strip away any doubt over false claims.
At Skribes we appreciate that time is money and properties need to be ‘tenant ready’ yesterday so we ensure that all of our check out reports, as well as our inventory reports, are completed and returned the same day so you can get on with whipping your property back into shape.
The process we use to deliver our service to you is extremely efficient and beautifully simple. Our online client portal will change the way you deal with your inventories including booking, viewing, sharing with tenants and storing. From start to finish everything is simple, fast and efficient.
