  • A written and or
  • photographic record of
  • the condition of a property
    • prior to arrival of a tenancy and or
    • during and upon departure at the end of a tenancy and
    • scheduling any dilapidations
  • It is important to take care to ensure that any mid term alterations are documented and if necessary signed by the parties to avoid a conflict at the end of a tenancy.  If the condition is only recorded at the outset, then any alterations made mid-term will not be included in the schedule.  E.g. a new lounge-suite provided towards the end of the tenancy could disappear with the departing tenants.  The tenants cannot be charged as evidentially the suite is not listed on the inventory!
