Inventory make

The preparation of the inventory is paid for by the Landlord and the cost is usually based on an hourly rate submitted by the independent inventory clerk.

Inventory check in and check out

The inventory check-in is usually carried out at the time the inventory is prepared, so it would be included in the cost of the inventory make, unless a previous inventory report is being used.

The inventory check in is paid for by the Landlord (unless the Tenant instructs their own clerk, in which case, each party pays for their own) the inventory check out is paid for by the Tenant (unless the Tenant instructs their own clerk, in which case each party pays for their own).

Deposits/Disputes: For Assured Shorthold tenancies

We register the deposit (held against any dilapidations) with the TDS (Tenancy Deposit Scheme), which is a Government-authorised Scheme.

If we manage your property, there is a charge of £120.00 (inc VAT), for holding the deposit and negotiating any disputes between the parties at the end of the tenancy. If required, we would forward the Deposit or any balance of it to the TDS if there is a dispute.

If we do not manage your property, there is a charge of £60 (inc VAT) for holding the deposit and either releasing it as instructed in writing by both parties at the end of the Tenancy; or passing it to the TDS at the end of the Tenancy, if you and the Tenant do not agree deductions. Should you require our assistance with the dilapidation claim, upon your written instructions, we can negotiate on your behalf and the fee for this service is £300.00 (inc VAT).

Deposits/Disputes for non-ASTs (Assured Shorthold Tenancy agreements)

For non-ASTs, the deposit is not covered under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme and if dilapidations are not agreed at the end of the tenancy, the Landlord may have to instruct solicitors (at their cost), or alternatively, an adjudicator to assist with the claim.
