Why do I need a Property Inventory?

Renting property can be a tricky business, for both landlords and tenants. A marked wall, maybe a broken window or ripped carpet can cost the tenant a hefty deposit. The landlord may feel money needs to be spent on the property before it can be rented out again.

A professionally drawn up Inventory Report will protect both tenant and landlord against any unnecessary disputes at the end of the tenancy. If there is insufficient information or no inventory then there is no evidence on the condition of the property prior to the commencement of the tenancy. Without documented evidence it would be difficult to make a claim against the tenant for damages, especially in the event that that tenant contests the claim.
