Preparation is the key to ensuring a problem-free tenancy. This means that you have to prepare the property in such a way that nothing is left to chance or forgotten and you have the documentary evidence to show for it. Part of this preparation involves the creation of a detailed inventory list of all things in the property at the start of the tenancy. The text below contains recommendations of landlord and tenants solicitors with respect to creating an inventory list.
When Should the Inventory be created?
Either before or after the check-in an inventory must be drafted and agreed upon by both parties. This task can be completed by the landlord, letting agent or an independent inventory clerk. Regardless of who is responsible for drafting it, the inventory list must be comprehensive and to a good professional standard.
What should be included in the list?
According to expert Landlord and Tenants Solicitors, a good inventory list should include the following details:-
– Date, full names of both parties.
– A complete list of the interior and exterior condition of all appliances.
– Meter readings, alarm checks, serial numbers of all equipment and list of keys.
– The details should be complemented with photos.
– The inventory list must be signed by both parties.
