Why is a thorough, detailed and accurate inventory essential to protect the interests of all parties including the agent?
If an inventory is inadequate, out of date, non-existent or if it cannot be proven to have been given to the tenant, then the adjudicators are likely to award the deposit to the tenant unless the tenant admits to damage or losses. After a period of time operating the schemes this message is being reflected in the ADR outcomes, with many inventories being found to be either inadequate at the outset, or failing to make the correct substantiated observations at the check - out.
