Tips to Retrieving your Full Tenancy Deposit
A deposit can occasionally mean a payment in the world of lettings, and students, in particular have seen huge sums taken out of their tenancy deposits, perhaps for damage or using up the landlords time. This is however, unlikely if you have kept your house in good conditions.
An inventory is a valuable document both for landlords and tenants, and it can help make sure you receive your tenancy deposit. An inventory gives the tenant an opportunity to note down the condition of the home, therefore when they leave, they can say ‘the damage was already there’ or ‘I didn’t do this’.
We recommend you take images with a camera that records the date and time, so that the images can be looked at, at the end of your tenancy, meaning the landlord will have to give your deposit back, else you can take them to court.
