Inventory list when renting
Just as it sounds, an inventory list is a list of your inventories. If you are subletting a property furnished, an inventory list can be decisive to assure all objects are in order after the renting period.
Create an inventory list
By creating an inventory list, both landlord and tenant gets proof of what state the furniture or other objects are in. By signing the inventory list, the tenant takes on the responsibility of assuring that the objects remain in the same state during the rental period (minus normal wear and tear).
An inventory list does not have to be any advanced, instead what is important is that is correct and well-written. In the list the landlord simply notes what will be left in the apartment during the rental agreement. After the lease, the tenant and landlord can use the inventory list to compare the state of the object with the previous state. Below is an example of how an inventory list can be formed:
Add pictures to strengthen the inventory list
In most cases, a written inventory list does the job, however a recommendation is to also take pictures of the objects to strengthen the proof. This further reduces conflicts and uncertainties. Make sure the tenant also takes part of the pictures. When the tenant moves out, you can simply compare the state of the objects with the list and pictures.
Make sure the list is signed
Once the inventory list is created by landlord and reviewed by tenant, it is time to sign it. Signing the list makes the renting process safer for both landlord and tenant and there leaves little room for uncertainty.
