    Inventory check out

    Hi all
    Can I please check, when you do the check out report via an inventory clerk and they find that there are discrepancies from the check in report, is the clerk the person that will advise how much the damages are?

    If not who can advise?

    thank you

    The clerk only reports on condition of property compared to move in report. It is for LL to decide on cost of deterioration, less allowance for FW&T during T.
    You apply to DPS ADR for their estimate of cost claimed, if Deposit was protected.


      I don't. As mariner says, I report changes and make suggestion as to liability, but I have no idea of make, model, age of most items in any roperty, so would have absolutely no idea how to estimate loss. That is for the LL, even with LAs that is often the case as the wner is the one who has receipts etc.

      Then the deposit scheme make the final decision, if the tenant queries the proposed charge,


        Thanks guys. What is LA, LL and ADR? I know what DPS is but not sure what DPS ADR is.

        Thank you

            So you should Stef! It is Alternative Dispute Resolution (as in an alternative to going to court).

            Sorry to be picky, but it is quite an important distinction because;

            They don't (assuming you mean ADR), unless both parties agree to use it.

            As a landlord, I would never agree to use ADR and would always go to court.



              I know that... so why did I type summink different? Ah well! Clearer heads prevail

                My former home is up for rent. Current tenants are leaving in a couple of weeks. I have a set of prospective tenants who really want the house. On my pre-screening questionnaire, I asked the question 'do you have a good credit history'. The answer came back as No, followed by an...

                Because no one knows which two months will be rent free until notice is served.

                The landlord is holding money that will discharge a liability of the tenant at some indeterminate point in the future.
                Which is a deposit.

                Until the rent that will be paid is due, the money...

              • damage, garden maintenance and cleaning dispute
                Hi All

                The tenants that left the property last week after 2.5 years and an initial 12 month let.

                The garden has a tall hedge, it is not a boundary hedge as there is a fence on the boundary and all the hedge trees are on our land but the foliage reaches over the fence.

                My guess is that this was previously the landlord's home (or possibly a family member's) and LL broke the rule "don't leave anything in the property that you are not willing to lose"

                But if rent is to be paid 3 months in advance, then it is known for which month(s) any payment is made. They can then not pay the last w=two months after giving notice because they have already paid it....

                This is not my only rent paying property.

                I think it's best to look into the insurance scheme - it just suits me that they only want to rent for 1 to 2 years....

              • BTL accepting lease agreement
                Hi All.

                Dipping in for some advice please.

                I have a property with current BTL of 75%. No adverse credit etc..
                Struggling to find a lender who will accept my current tenant going forward as it's leased to a care home operator.
                One lender had agreed to the tenant,...

                Thanks for the reply.
                I've gone through quite a few brookers and nothing is being placed on the table.

                So basically I've been looking in the wrong pool of lenders?
                I did approach a commercial lender but they were talking of fees of 5k + product fees....on a 120k loan I found...

              • section 21 and how to rent guide
                Hi do you have to serve an up to date how to rent guide when a tenancy moves to a periodic tenancy from a standard 6 months tenancy or is the original how to rent guide sufficient in order to serve a valid section 21 notice...

                It doesn't really have to be before the replacement tenancy starts, it just has to be before any section 21, but yes about new guide.

                It's a new tenancy, so the requirements to provide a guide applies again, and because there's a new version, you don't get the exemption to not provide it...
