Inventories for Rental Properties
A landlord inventory is a document that lists all of the items in a rental property, along with their condition. It should include a detailed description of each item, as well as any damage or wear and tear that may be present. This document is important for both the landlord and tenant, as it serves as a record of the condition of the property at the beginning of the tenancy.
Why do I need an Inventory?
By providing evidence of the condition of the property at the start of the tenancy, your inventory list can help protect both you as the the landlord, and your tenant . It can also serve as a reference for determining any damage or wear and tear that may have occurred during the tenancy and may be used to determine who is responsible for paying for repairs or replacements.

Tenancy Inventory Check Out and Check In
When you check in a new tenant to your rental property, there are a few key things that you need to remember.
First, you should review the tenancy agreement with the tenant to make sure that they understand their rights and responsibilities as a tenant. You should also go over the property rules, such as any restrictions on noise or guests, and make sure that the tenant is aware of them.
Additionally, you should conduct a thorough walk-through of the property to document its condition and take note of any existing damage. You should also provide the tenant with a copy of the tenancy agreement inventory list and have them sign it to confirm that they agree with its contents.
It is also important to collect any necessary deposit or first month’s rent at this time. Overall, the check-in process is a crucial step in establishing a successful landlord-tenant relationship and should be handled carefully.
