Accidental Landlords question regarding “no inventory”
I have taken over as the landlord of a property after a divorce. Before this I was never involved in the property business!! Anyway the house was purchase about three years ago and the first tenants that took the property are still in situ. My issue is that I have no evidence of the state of the property prior to the tenant occupying it and I am worried that if they now left and the house was in disrepair I would have not claim against the deposit because I cannot prove what state the house was given to them.
Any ideas on what I can do to protect myself in the event of a dispute?
