What is an inventory
Most private rented landlords require tenants to pay a deposit as a condition of letting accommodation. The deposit acts as security against non-payment of rent or damage to the property.
An inventory list is a complete report detailing the property, furniture and fittings provided in your home as well as their conditions at the time of the inventory check. Having an inventory can help prevent disputes about the deposit at the end of the tenancy. It’s best to have a written inventory that is compiled by an independent impartial inventory clerk and signed by the tenant when they move in.
