What is a property Inventory ? 

A property inventory is a detailed record of a rental property’s condition and contents. It usually includes descriptions and photographs of every item in the property, as well as a report on the property’s overall condition. 

Property inventories are typically required for rental properties to provide a record of the property’s condition and contents at the start of a tenancy. This can be useful in resolving any disputes that may arise during or after the tenancy regarding the property’s condition or contents. 

A property inventory can also help protect the landlord’s interests by providing evidence of the property’s condition prior to the tenant moving in. This can come in handy if the tenant contests any deductions from the deposit for damages or unpaid rent.

Is an inventory of a rental property needed by law for a landlord? 

Landlords are not required by law to keep an inventory of their rental properties in England and Wales. However, having an inventory can help safeguard the landlord’s interests and serve as proof of the property’s state and contents in the event of a dispute. 

Is it obligatory by law for tenants to put down a deposit when renting a home? 

If a tenant is renting a property under an assured shorthold tenancy in England and Wales, the landlord is legally required to safeguard the tenant’s security deposit in a government-approved tenancy deposit protection scheme (AST). Within 30 days of receiving the deposit, landlords must also give tenants specific information regarding the deposit protection programme. 

What is the most a landlord may demand as a security deposit? 

The maximum deposit a landlord may demand is based on the value of the rental home. The maximum deposit for homes with annual rents under £50,000 is equal to five weeks’ worth of rent. The maximum deposit for homes with annual rent of £50,000 or more is equal to six weeks’ worth of rent. 

If a renter has a pet, can the landlord request a larger security deposit? 

Landlords are not permitted to increase the security deposit in England and Wales just because a tenant has a pet. However, if a landlord is worried about the possibility of harm brought on by a pet, they may ask the tenant to pay an extra “pet damage deposit.” The tenancy deposit and this supplementary deposit both need to be protected. 

If a renter has a bad credit history, can the landlord request a larger deposit? 

A landlord cannot raise the deposit in England and Wales only because the renter has a bad credit history. However, if the landlord has doubts about the tenant’s ability to pay the rent, they may demand an additional deposit or a guarantor. 

Can a landlord utilise the security deposit from a tenant to pay for late rent or repairs? 

In England and Wales, a landlord may only utilise a tenant’s security deposit to pay for late fees or damage claims after giving the tenant written notice and an itemised breakdown of any deductions. Ten days after the renter vacates the property, the landlord must also give the tenant any unpaid balance of the deposit. 

What happens if the landlord doesn’t give the tenant their security deposit back within ten days of the lease expiring? 

Tenants have a legal right to their security deposit if the landlord does not return it within 10 days of the lease expiring. If the deposit was covered by one of these plans, the tenant may also report the landlord to the tenancy deposit protection scheme. 

Can a tenant contest a deposit deduction if they don’t agree with it? 

Yes, if a tenant objects to a deduction from their deposit, they may contest it. If the deposit was covered by one of these programmes, the tenant may ask the landlord for a written explanation and may also seek assistance from the tenancy deposit protection system.
