Issues resolved – Any problems with furnished items or the property can be highlighted before your tenancy starts and annually so that any issues can be quickly and easily dealt with.

Deposit protected – Having a clear outline of what items and the property condition was at the start of the tenancy helps to give you assurances that as long as you keep the items in good condition that at the end of your tenancy your deposit will be returned to you in full without any claims being made against it.

Less disputes – By having clear descriptions and photographic evidence of inventory items, tenants can be assured that any disputes can be dealt with in a fair, consistent and simple manner to be resolved quickly.
