A professional inventory report carried out by a 3rd party accredited inventory clerk is essential in protecting both landlord and tenant against any unnecessary disputes at the end of the tenancy.
As we are members of both the Association of independent property clerks (AIIC) and the property redress scheme you can rest assure your report will be carried out by a compliant and professional clerk.
If an inventory is not carried out prior to a new tenancy, then no evidence has been recorded of the properties condition prior to commencement of the tenancy. Landlords are unlikely to be able to make a claim for any damage or cleaning issues outside of normal fair wear and tear. The impotence of an inventory cannot be underestimated, in fact, the Government advice indicates that inventors and statements of conditions are strongly recommended as a means to reduce most disputes regarding the deposit at the end of the tenancy.
