Landlords are required to keep an up to date inventory of their property,
unfurnished or furnished. This establishes the condition of the walls, kitchen
appliances, gardens etc.
The importance of a detailed inventory is to protect the landlord against any changes the tenant might do to the property that is not in the lease agreement.
The inventory should be undertaken by a third party inventory clerk, who will provide a thorough and unbiased documented list. The tenant signs this list along with the lease agreement, as it becomes legally binding. This document will assist a Court Judge should any future disputes occur.
An independent inventory clerk prepares an inventory, check in report and check out report. These documents are provided to the landlord for each of his properties. Normally, one inventory is needed, should there be any change of circumstance then an updated inventory is recommended.
The cost of an inventory and check in list is payable by the landlord whilst the tenant upon signing, will agree to pay for the check out report. Should the tenant refuse to pay, you, as landlord, are entitled to deduct the monies from their deposit.
