What Is An Inventory?

The inventory provides a fair and accurate record of the contents of the property and their condition. It also records the condition of the fabric of the internal and external parts of the property. Photographs are taken to show the condition of items / décor at the time of the check in. These photographs shall be kept on file during the tenancy. At the checkout assessment a representative will attend to make a comparative assessment of the property against the inventory/check–in. If there are any additional damages that fall beyond the definition of “fair wear and tear”, it is possible that deductions may be made from the deposit before it is returned to the tenant/s.

It is most important that an inventory of contents and schedule of condition be prepared, in order to avoid misunderstanding or dispute at the end of a tenancy. Without such safeguards, it will be impossible for the Landlord to prove any loss, damage, or significant deterioration of the property or contents.
