About this document
The law provides for the swift return of a tenancy deposit to the tenant at the end of the tenancy. If there is a dispute, there are now set procedures for dealing with the dispute. To maximise your time and avoid litigation, all parties should agree the contents of the property thoroughly today. If all parties have signed the inventory and agreed how many pot plants there are, it will be clear at the end of the tenancy that if one is missing, the tenant isn’t due all of their money back. Of course the tenant might be due all of their tenancy deposit back, some or none. Once you have agreed the contents of your property, there is less room for dispute.
All Net Lawman residential tenancy documents include this comprehensive inventory. However, if you already have a lease or license agreement in place and have no inventory, it is a good idea to get one today and agree it with your tenant / landlord as priority. The law now requires that tenant’s deposits are more closely protected during the tenancy and that tenants are duly given back their deposit unless there has been adverse damage (other than reasonable wear and tear) to the property.
