Creating and agreeing an inventory with your tenant could prove essential in the event of a dispute. When a tenant is about to sign a tenancy agreement, the tenant and landlord should inspect each room of the property together and, using an inventory, agree the condition of…
- Fixtures and fittings, such as curtain rails, light fittings, carpets and the general decorative state of the property;
- Any furniture included in the rent, as well as things like kitchen appliances;
- Other household items included in the rent, such as kitchen utensils and cookware.
- Any existing marks to walls, frayed edges of carpets, numbers of plates/pans/cutlery items, and other items that might be the subject of dispute should be noted on two copies of the inventory and signed by both parties, each of whom should then keep a copy.
When the tenancy comes to an end, the inventory should again be referred to by both parties. Any loss or damage that has occurred since the signing of the original inventory can be noted and deducted from the deposit paid by the tenant at the beginning of the tenancy.
