Property Inventories

When renting property,  ALWAYS ensure you create an inventory of all rooms. Include everything on this inventory – condition of walls, kitchen cupboards, furniture, carpets etc as well as light fittings supplied and type of cooker. Be specific – is the microwave brand a or brand b, is the mattress make x or make y and what pattern is on it?

In the worst-case scenario, someone COULD take your beautiful new double mattress and replace it with an old mattress from the tip!

For reference, we have attached a sample inventory we recently did for one of our flats (please excuse the poor formatting – you get the idea!)
