Under the Tenancy Deposit Scheme of 6 April 2007 professional Inventories help to settle or, preferably, avoid any disputes between Landlord and Tenant. The Tenancy Deposit Schemes (TDSs) became compulsory under the Housing Act 2004 for all residential Assured Shorthold Tenancies created on or after 6th April 2007 in order to protect a Tenant’s deposit and to resolve disputes before they escalate to TDS stage.
A fully detailed, clear and independent inventory is vital to minimise or prevent deposit disputes at the end of the tenancy.
Stef Cooke Inventory Services carries Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance and is a member of the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks.
