Renting Property: A Detailed Inventory
One of the most common, yet most easily resolved disputes between landlords and tenants, relates to the condition and the content of the property to be rented. Landlords should provide tenants with a detailed list of the contents of the house and agreement should be reached as to the condition of the house before the new tenants move in.
Landlords must be prepared to accept a certain amount of unavoidable normal wear and tear in the furnishings and fittings of the house, especially if they are lucky enough to have their property continuously rented out. Tenants, for their part, will need to understand that, in order to present the house properly, the landlord may provide them with items of furniture that should be treated properly.
Landlords may have to compromise between including enough furniture to enable their property to appear comfortable and ready for immediate occupation, whilst as the same time avoid filling up what may well be a relatively small living area.
Most tenants, when they rent out a furnished house, will expect a minimum of a double /single bed in each bedroom, as well as wardrobes and lockers ,clean carpets and curtains. The bathroom should have an electric shower, washbasin, toilet and all plumbing should be in full working order.
Kitchens should include an appropriately sized table and chairs, gas or electric cooker in good condition, compliant with all relevant regulations. A fridge and washing machine are essential, and most tenants would also expect a microwave and dishwasher to be included. A full set of cleaning implements should also be provided. The landlord should supply a complete set of cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery.
