Optional: Inventory
Upon request and at an additional charge we can arrange an inventory clerk to prepare an inventory and schedule of condition and we strongly recommend this for furnished and unfurnished properties as it can save costly litigation and disputes at the termination of the tenancy. Under the tenancy deposit scheme a landlord is unlikely to claim compensation for any loss or damage if there is no inventory.
