    Inventory

    Hi all,

    I moved into my new flat about a month ago. On the day I signed the tenancy agreement with the letting agent they told me that an inventory had been done but they didn't have a paper copy so I asked if they could send me one ASAP and they agreed

    Needless to say I didn't receive it so I chased it up. Their response was that '_______inspection reports are purely for office use only and as the apartment you have recently moved into was a new one for us, we have notated the condition of the apartment in respect to décor carpets and the appliances that have been provided'. They won't give me a copy basically.

    My question is, as a tenant, do I have a right to see a copy of the inventory/inspection report?

    Cheers for any advice.

    You don't have a 'right' per-se, however, the inventory will have much less value for the landlord at move-out time if they have no proof that you accepted it on move-in.

      Whilst it may not be a right to have an inventory I think it is pretty unusual and does raise suspicions about what they might try to do when you leave.

      I would take my own photographs (lots of them!) and write to the agency detailing anything that is not perfect so you have a record of your own when you leave.

      Good luck

        Keep a copy of any correspondence where they state they haven't provided you with a copy of the Inventory, which you can state when you move out.

          Yes, lots of photos, ideally date-stamped, of everything inside and out. And meter readings.

            I donpt know what the agents think they are playing at, but they are either incompetent or devious.

            How is the inventory referred to in the tenancy agreement?
