Since the introduction of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme on 6th April 2007 (my how time flies!) it has become a requirement for Landlords to ‘prove their case’ if there are to be any deductions made from a Tenant’s deposit.
This legislation is designed to protect Tenants and under the terms of the scheme adjudicators will review all relevant documents, including Inventory Reports, before the dispute resolution service or the courts decide how to divide deposit liabilities between Landlords and Tenants.
For Landlords, whether you let out a single property or you have a large portfolio, you need to safeguard your investment. You need to be able to prove damages, breakages and cleanliness have occurred during a Tenancy. The most effective way to do this and to avoid a potential dispute is to have your Tenants agree on the specific condition of your property and its contents before they begin occupancy.
When you consider the costs involved with both the purchase and maintenance of a property, plus the time and money spent on the presentation, most professional Landlords agree that a comprehensive Inventory Report is an essential tool in successful property management.

'Your landlord should provide you with proof of protection within 30 days from the date they take the deposit' Check these 3 schemes (or ask your Landlord) to see where your Deposit is protected:
The biggest area for potential problems and disputes between Landlords and Tenants is the condition of the property, fixtures and fittings, damage and cleanliness at the end of the Tenancy.
As a Tenant you can protect yourself and most importantly your deposit, by having an independent Inventory Report prepared at the start of the Tenancy. This is absolutely vital for Tenants, particularly if your Landlord has failed to have their own independent Inventory Report drawn up and agreed with you prior to the start of your Tenancy.
An independent Inventory Report, including a schedule of condition, prepared at the beginning and end of your Tenancy is the best way to avoid disputes and issues relating to deposits. When you consider the substantial deposits that Tenants are required to pay to their Landlords when a property is let, (often equivalent to anything between one and six months rent), many Tenants are now taking advantage of the cost effective services that our services can provide for them.
