Inventories for Landlords 

In today’s letting market it is essential for landlords to safeguard themselves against damage to the fixtures and fittings of their property. It is not sufficient to just take a damages deposit from your tenant.

You need to prove that damage or breakages have occurred during the tenancy.

The most effective way to do this and to avoid disputes arising at the end of the tenancy is by having your tenants agree on the specific condition of your property before they begin occupancy.

This can be achieved by having a professionally prepared inventory drawn up and then signed by your tenants.

By doing this you will be sending a clear signal to your tenants that they will be held fully responsible for all damage, necessary repairs and renewal costs other than acceptable fair wear and tear.

When you consider the costs involved with both the purchase and maintenance of a property, plus the time and expenditure spent on the presentation, most professional landlords agree that a comprehensive inventory is an essential tool in successful property management.
