Deposit Protection Scheme.
Moving out of rental properties has become a lot more complex since the introduction of the Deposit Protection Scheme. The scheme was introduced in 2007 because the government recognised deposits were being unfairly withheld by some unscrupulous landlords.
Since then a raft of procedures have been put in place by estate agents and landlords to protect both parties. The most common format is the inventory which has become part of the rental agreement, which tenants have to sign to accept returning the property to the same standard in which it was provided.
Inventories are undertaken by the estate agent or and independent 3rd party. The fully document the condition of the property and include photos that will eliminate any disputes should they arise.
The majority of tenants pay little attention to the rigour of those expectations until its time to move out. Quite often the required level of cleanliness isn’t achieved by the vacating tenant and they’re often penalised with an unexpected cost so the landlord is able to put the property back on the rental market.
