So much for being impartial, unbiased and acting as a third party. The AIIC clerk who did the check out report with the tenant present noted as he carried out the inspection that items from the original inventory were missing (eg washer/dryer and bedroom furniture). There was a large bulky item (a huge workbench) left on its side on the parking space.
Lots of cleaning missed escaped the clerk’s reporting and there was obvious damage to the property caused by tenant neglect.
The tenant signed the report and handed over the keys. In my 30 years + experience, that represents the point of no return……
BUT NO! NOT THIS TIME!!
The AIIC invited the tenants to have a 7 further days to agree the report. They starting asking for their deposit back after 2 days. then on the 7th day following their exit, they added comments to the report e.g. that they were returning to fetch the bulky item, the landlord had gifted them the white goods and furniture.
Now it seems they don’t want to pay for the bulky waste collection, because in their 7 day response they said they’d be collecting it.
The flat is in an area where parking on street is like gold dust. I needed the use of the parking space for my tradesmen and their wagons.
How can the AIIC claim to be impartial and unbiased? Once the exit evidence has been collected and reported on, their job is done! Their beak not required!
It is between myself and the tenants to agree how we go our separate ways – with the deposit scheme called in if required.
I spoke to the AIIC this morning. The response was this: ‘Some tenants take things by mistake….. and we like to give them time to remember what’s theirs’.
