Damage to your assets may be caused in a variety of ways, including:
Regardless of the reasons, as a landlord you want to ensure you and your tenants are on the same page and in agreement, duly noted by both parties.
2 - What’s Included?
A detailed property inventory will include information pertaining to:
The fabric of the property

The contents of the property
The state of the garden
3 - Legal Disputes
In the event of legal disputes with your tenant, the inventory acts as irrefutable evidence pertaining to the condition of your property and the contents therein.
Failure to provide an accurate, detailed inventory report can have severe consequences and leave you without a leg to stand on should the case go to court.
For example, you will not be allowed to withhold part or all of a tenant’s deposit in the event of a dispute if you do not have an inventory agreement in place.
Why Attic Inventory?
When compiling your inventory, we create a detailed description of everything in the property, including walls, flooring, lights, windows, etc.
Photos are recorded as evidence of every description to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding between you, your tenant and a possible adjudicator.
This is a detailed process and ideally requires the services of an experienced inventory clerk.
Consider the time investment required to provide detailed reports, condition summaries and photographic evidence.
