Tenancy Agreement Itinerary

Hello Our landlord and real estate agent did not provide inventory at the beginning of our rental. Our house was not professionally cleaned before moving in, as stated in our contract. The agent wants us to pay £275 for a professional cleaner to clean the property before moving. We took pictures of the house the day we moved in, showed the poor condition it was in, and no inventory was made. Does the owner have a leg to stand on when it comes to getting us to clean the property? A check-out is the handing over of the property by tenants at the end of a lease, which involves a check of the condition against a possible initial inventory. If you do not have an incoming inventory (established at the beginning of the lease), a good registration report is always proof of the condition in which the property was located and, even if the tenant has broken clauses in the rental agreement, that is, it is not allowed to keep pets. While it will be more difficult to prove proof of deposit deductions with no incoming inventory, a registration report without incoming inventory is still preferable to no check-out. A landlord`s inventory is usually documented by a form and additional images and then mentioned at the end of the lease, so it`s easy to determine if there is any damage for which the tenant is responsible. However, you are entitled to a refund of your money and there should only be a deduction if the reasons and amounts are fully justified (with evidence).

They will be the most reliable source of information, as they will check the inventory in case of a dispute. Listen to the Housing Horror Stories episode of our podcasts to find out how signing a joint lease came back to bite one of us into the 🍑. . . .
