How Crucial is An Accurate Inventory?

Without a thorough inventory that is undertaken in advance of the start of the tenancy there can be many problems when it comes to returning a deposit, on the part of both landlords and tenants. In order to avoid a dispute, Winkworth West End & Clerkenwell can advise you on how to avoid problems. A detailed and carefully conducted inventory can often be a saving grace when it comes to the end of a tenancy, many deposit disputes are due to inadequate and vague inventories that leave it unclear as to the condition of the property prior to the start of the tenancy, or what could possibly be blamed on ‘reasonable wear and tear’. Any ambiguity surrounding the prior condition of the property could result in a large sum of the deposit being at stake. It is advised that careful note of the property’s condition, including photographs are documented in order for the end of the tenancy and release of the deposit to run as smoothly as possible. At Winkworth West End and Clerkenwell we take utmost care to ensure that when a tenancy ends both the tenant andthe landlord are happy with the outcome, we work with specialist inventory clerks to deal with any issues that may arise regarding this issue as we know the potential for trouble. For more details on inventories and how we can help you to ensure that your inventory is properly taken care of, call Muna on our Property Management team on 0207 691 4260.
