There have been several discussions here about inventories, why they are necessary and which is the best software to use to produce them etc.
What we’ve never had before though is the ability for landlords and letting agents to download a professionally prepared inventory for benchmarking purposes against what they have been doing until now.
With this in mind I asked two major contributors to our forums and supporters of The GOOD Landlords Campaign for their help.
The inventory comprises 75 pages of detail – take a look if you want to compare it to what you might be producing for yourself.
As you probably know, landlords lose deposit protection arbitration cases more often than they win. This is not because the process is biased in any way, it’s simply because their evidence for claiming damages is insufficient, usually due to the quality of the inventories produced at the point of check in and check out.
It needn’t cost a fortune to have inventories of this quality produced. In the case of LettingSupermarket.com, it’s all part and parcel of the service they provide from just £24.99 a month plus VAT, nothing up-front to pay by the landlord – see this thread where I have reviewed their offering.
