What is an inventory and why do you need one?
An inventory is a factual, impartial, detailed document outlining all of a rental property’s contents and fittings, their condition and cleanliness at the time of inspection. Having an independent inventory with photographic evidence safeguards your investment for the future. Further a good inventory offers tenants clear guidance of the condition to which a property and its contents should be maintained and ultimately returned at the end of the tenancy. As such, the inventory can be used to determine if reasonable deductions from the deposit should be retained and can form critical evidence in the case of any disputes. It is recommended by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and the National Landlords Association.
