How can an inventory help?

It is most important that an inventory of contents and schedule of condition be prepared, in order to avoid misunderstanding or dispute at the end of a tenancy. Without such safeguards, it will be impossible for the landlord to prove any loss, damage, or significant deterioration of the property or contents. In order to provide a complete service to the landlord, we will if requested arrange for a member of staff to prepare an inventory and schedule of condition, at a cost to be quoted.

An inventory is a detailed list of the contents and condition of the property and any items provided with it, such as furniture or equipment. You should do an inventory of the property with the landlord or agent before the tenant(s) move in. Landlords should always check the Inventory is accurate and that everything is in working order.

The inventory should also state the condition that everything is in. Make sure you note if anything is damaged, marked, scratched, burnt or worn. A detailed inventory can prevent disputes later on. Both the tenant and the landlord should sign the inventory and keep a copy.

You could also take photos showing the condition of the property before the tenant moves in.
