Condition Reports / Inventory service

It has become even more imperative that when letting out a property, a schedule of condition and inventory be supplied to your tenants.

Without this document a landlord may have no legal entitlement in the event of a dispute to make deductions from a tenants deposit at the end of the tenancy. Following the introduction of the Tenancy Deposit Scheme in April 2007, when Part 6 of the Housing Act 2004 finally came into effect, this became even more important.

This entails a visit to the property by an independent representative to compile a comprehensive report on the contents included in the tenancy, together with a schedule of condition. Once this has been agreed with the tenant it becomes a binding document between landlord and tenant and forms the basis on which damage or dilapidation may be assessed at the end of a tenancy.

The current fee to undertake the above is £70 plus VAT.
