If you own a furnished apartment that you rent out you are probably familiar with the headache associated with the day you conduct your property inspections whenever a previous tenant vacates the premises, only to repeat the process a while later when a new one moves in. It is a painful process indeed, but an essential one, nevertheless, as it safeguards your possessions as well as your property.
Could there not be an easier way, you ask? Of course! Have you heard of property inspection apps? These will make your life so much easier when going through your property’s inventory.
All that is required is to download a reputable property inspection software (such as SnapInspect or TopInspect) to your mobile device and away you go! There will be no more clipboards, pens, bulky cameras or reams of messy papers.
The only work to foresee will be to input the list of contents in your property but this will be a once-off job, as the app will save this inventory list. Then, each time you conduct your property inventory inspection, you can simply save each inspection as a new one. You will then be able to tick off each item on your inventory list as you come across it. If any item is missing, you will be able to charge your tenant for it. Most property inspection apps allow you to take photos of items and to upload it to your final report.
Then, after you have completed everything, you will be able to send and print the report and have your tenant sign it. What could be easier?
In addition to this, using a property inspection app is far quicker than doing the entire operation by hand, thus saving you time for the important things in life!
