Validity Of Inventory.

Recommended Posts

Hi, can someone advise me on something I am unsure on?

A year ago, I let my property through an estate agents. The estate agents took management of the property for the duration of the let. The property was let on a year long Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreement and was signed by the agents and the tenants. Along with this was a full inventory of the property, fixtures and fittings signed my the tenants and a member of staff at the letting agents.

11 months into the agreed letting period of one year the estate/managing agents have shut down. They have not yet filed for bankruptcy but are nowhere to be found.

I am due to have the tenants sign a new 1 year tenancy agreement as the term for the original has now expired.

Is the original inventory that was signed by the tenants and the managing agents (but not by myself) still valid? What I mean by this question is: If there is a dispute at the end of the tenancy as to the condition of the property, fixtures or fitting (whenever that may be) can I use the original inventory as proof of condition?

Many thanks for any advice.

Thanks for your advice guys. I have spoken to some other people as well and the general view is that the inventory is perfectly acceptable and proof of the original condition.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
