A home inventory refers to a list tracking all the important and valuable items in a home. It can include furniture, electrical appliances, paintings and whatever item that the homeowner feels has some value, whether aesthetically or financially.
It can be an orderly list recording all the home equipment by location in a home. This enables the homeowners to locate the items when it is specified at a particular location in the home. This list can be pasted up for all to refer when each resident wants to find a particular home equipment.
A home inventory template header can be of two columns of information:
1) * Family Name
* Contact number
2) * Insurance Company
* Insurance Policy
* Validity date
* Contact Representative
Insurance information is included for claims purposes.
The template body includes the following important pieces of information:
* Description of item
* Estimated / Depreciated Price
* Serial Number
The body of the template can be as detailed as the record sheet allows. Its columns identify each item in every location in the home, such as, dining area, living area, kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, garden, shed etc. The Notes column allows the owner to pen special information with regards to the item on hand, such as ‘missing handle’ for an item so that appropriate action can be taken on it.
