Disclaim er and General Guidelines
This inventory report has been prepared by London City Inventory Ltd and provides a fair and
accurate record of the condition of the property and its contents at the time the inventory was
prepared. It is the responsibility of the tenant, landlord and/or agent to agree between themselves
the accuracy of this report.
Any amendments/additions to the report must be notified to London City Inventory Ltd or the
managing agent within 14 days from receipt of the report.
The inventory clerk preparing this report is not an expert in textiles, woods, materials or antiques etc.
Nor is the inventory clerk a qualified surveyor. The inventory should not be used as an accurate
description of each and every piece of furniture and equipment nor as a structural survey report.
All items are considered to be in good condition, clean and free of damage unless otherwise stated
in the Schedule of Condition. The tenant has an obligation to leave the property as found with fair
wear and tear accepted.
At the end of the tenancy, the inventory report is fully checked, and any significant discrepancies will
be reported to the Instructing Principal. This report will indicate whether, in our opinion, there is any
liability to the Tenant, or where such dilapidation might be considered as fair wear and tear.
Property left in lofts, cellars and locked rooms, which have not been seen and recorded, are the sole
responsibility of the Landlord.
Meter readings may only be taken if the meters are easily accessible. In any event, the relevant
utility company should check meter readings.
The Fire and Safety Regulation regarding furnishing, gas, electrical and similar services are
ultimately the responsibility of the instructing principal. Where the inventory notes “FFR label seen”,
this should not be interpreted to mean the item complies with the “Furniture and Furnishings (Fire)
(Safety) (Amendments) 1993”. It is a record that the item had a label as described or similar to that
detailed in the “Guide” published by the Department of Trade & Industry, January 1997 (or
subsequent date), attached at the time the inventory was compiled. It is not a statement that the item
can be considered to comply with the regulations.
Safety Disclaimer
All electrical items are considered to be complete with plugs, bulbs and flexes etc., unless otherwise
specified. Electrical and gas appliances will not be tested as part of the inventory. Tenants are
advised to test all appliances as soon as possible and report any faults to the Landlord / Managing
Agent.
It is the responsibility of the tenant to inspect any smoke detector fitted in the property at regular
intervals to ensure they are working correctly.

Guidelines for Tenants
All personal items must be removed from the property and cleaning must be carried out
ready for the Check Out date. The property must be ready for hand over, along with any issued
keys, at the appointed time of the Check Out. In the event that the property has not been fully
vacated, it will not be possible to complete the Check Out and a charge to reschedule the
appointment will be incurred.
Before checking out of the property, it is essential that all furniture and other items are returned to
their original locations as indicated on the original inventory, including any items that have been
packed or stored away. Failure to do this may incur further charges if items are not located or require
repositioning.
If the property was professionally cleaned for the tenancy it is strongly advised that professional
cleaners be used to carry out an end of tenancy clean. It is expected that the property and its
contents will be in a similar condition of cleanliness as noted in the original inventory. If the standard
of cleaning is not satisfactory, most managing agents or Landlords will employ a contract cleaner,
the cost of which will be deducted from the tenant’s deposit.
All cleaning must be thorough and the property left tidy at the end of the tenancy. The main areas for
concern are sanitary ware, windows, hard floors, woodwork, kitchen appliances and units, shelves,
ovens, cooker hoods, refrigerators, wardrobes, drawer units, linens and bedding.
Deductions may be incurred by the tenant should the following dilapidations be noted:
Carpets –soiling, staining, burn marks and heavy shading
Wooden flooring – scratch marks, staining and heavy usage
Skirting boards, walls and woodwork – soiling, staining, scratch marks, damage, nail holes and
Blue Tack residue. Installation of cabling through a wall e.g. satellite TV cable, will be considered as
damage and a charge incurred for repairs.
Always seek the permission of the Landlord / Managing Agent before putting up pictures or
making any alterations to the property and its contents.
Soft furnishings and curtains - soiling, staining, breakages, heavy shading, tears, burn marks
and discolouration due to smoke.
Polished furniture - scratches, ring marks, burns, dents, chips, soiling and damage. Repair costs
can be high so it is advised that polished furniture is protected with mats etc.
Beds, bases mattresses and linen – staining, rips, soiling, burn marks and tears. Ensure all
bedding and linen is clean, washed, pressed and stored appropriately at the time of Check Out.
Sanitary ware, sinks and ceramic tiles - scale, soiling, chips, staining or damage.
Crockery, china and utensils - soiling, chips, burn marks, scratch marks, loose handles to pans
etc.
Keys listed on the inventory should be kept safely and handed back at the end of the tenancy.
Charges may be incurred for the cost of replacing locks.
Gardens – non-maintained lawns, beds, shrubs and bushes, unswept paved areas and driveways.
