    help with court and inventory

    Off to court soon
    My question is is an inventory legal if it isn't signed by either party????

    To clarify
    we both have a copy of an inventory with amendements hand written on, both photocopies, neither of them is signed by LL or Tenant.

    There's no way of proving that the tenant ever saw the inventory without him signing it so I would say that the tenant would win in court.


      Agreed - An incoming inventory and property condition report must be signed and dated by the landlord and tenant at the start of the tenancy. If this is not done the landlord has no satisfactory evidence of the state of the property.

      On the outgoing inventory and condition check notes are often inserted on the incoming inventory to show any changes. If possible the these changes should be agreed , signed and dated by both the landlord and tenant.

      If there are damages both parties may agree for a sum to be retained from the deposit.

      Without Plain English Codes of Practice and easy to complete Prescribed Forms the current law is too complex and is thus neither fair to good tenants nor good landlords.
