An inventory is a list of everything that is in the property you're renting and what condition it's in, for example:

  • Furniture
  • Carpets
  • Curtains
  • Kitchenware and so on.

An inventory can help avoid disputes over deposits when tenants move out because it proves what state the property was in when they moved in. You might find the Shelter Scotland template inventory useful. Or if you have an iPhone the Housemate iPhone app could help you make an inventory.
