Inventory & Schedule Of Condition

An inventory and schedule of condition is a vital document as it provides an accurate record as to the cleanliness and condition of all of the property’s fixtures and fittings at the start and the end of a tenancy.

In order to avoid any potential discrepancies at the end of a tenancy, the inventory and schedule of condition is used as evidence to determine whether any differences in the property’s condition are attributable to the actions or inactions of the outgoing tenants. It is a vital document for deciding whether any deductions can be made from a tenant’s deposit.

Without evidence it would prove difficult to claim for damage or loss to the property from the tenant and an adjudicator may not consider a claim from the tenants’ deposit.
