Inventory For Rental Property

Recommended Posts

I am leaving my rental premise, my landlady tells me I have to pay for the outgoing inventory. WTF! This is news to me.

Anyone can illuminate me?

What does it say in your tenancy agreement?

It would be unusual for a vacating tenant to pay for an outgoing inventory - whatever that is.

Usually at the end of a tenancy, there is a check-out procedure whereby the property condition gets checked against the inventory that was given to you at the beginning of the tenancy. Perhaps this is what your landlady means?

Personally, I wouldn't pay, but do check your tenancy agreement.

If you have to pay the checkout, it should be mentioned in your contract.

Obviusly the tenant ends up paying for it somehow, in my case I don't pay a fee, but the LL no-doubt pays for it out of the rent, otherwise they wouldn't make a profit.

If it isn't written into your contract, then they simply cannot charge you for it.

Sorry for the delay in replying. I checked the contract and it says the following;

Moving out: The Check Out

As part of the tenancy Deposit Scheme, the landlord will pay for the comprehensive independant inventory/schedule of condition prepared for the property. The tenant is required to pay upto £50 ( per property) for professional checkout by inventory clerk and subsequent report being prepared. This charge is not payable until the end of the tenancy, can be paid from the deposit and is non- negotiable.

WTF? :unsure:

Your LA/LL is a turd.

The lesson you learn here is always read your contract before signing.

It is probably too late to negotiate now. My attitude would be to complain about the fee and also go to the TDS with any other deductions.

Thank you. I agree, I should have read a bit more carefully. The time I moved into the prop, I had very little time etc. Anyway I learnt something.
