Inventories

An inventory is a list of the contents and condition of the property and any items provided in it, like furniture or equipment.

An inventory is done at the start of the tenancy and then checked at the end to help solve any disagreements about damage to the property. The inventory should be done before you move into the property.

The landlord or letting agent should put the inventory together when you are present, if possible. You and the landlord should sign the inventory to show that you agree it is correct.

You should always check the inventory thoroughly before you sign and then keep a copy for yourself. If the landlord refuses to do an inventory, do your own and get an independent witness such as a friend or support worker to sign it and send a copy to the landlord or letting agent.
