About the Association of Independent Inventory Clerks

Since the AIIC was established in 1996 its aim has been to ensure that every landlord, tenant and agent in the UK is aware of the importance of the inventory process and the benefits of employing an independent, professional independent inventory clerk.

The AIIC ensures that proper information and training is available for all members to provide the best possible service.

Don’t be fooled by businesses claiming to provide inventory services where they may have little or no experience in the field. The growing popularity of the lettings industry has seen an increase in these types of companies. You can be assured that by using an AIIC member independent inventory clerk:

  • They will have agreed to conduct their business in a professional manner in accordance with the Guidelines to Professional Practice
  • They will abide by the AIIC’s Code of Practice
  • They have Professional Indemnity insurance
  • They have Public Liability insurance
  • They are experts in their field and will save you time, money and hassle.

We have started a fantastic petition, please help us make the lettings process fairer by signing up:

Make independent inventory reporting of privately rented properties compulsory

Independent inventory reporting of privately rented properties on an AST should be a mandatory requirement.

Independent inventories offer protection and help to reduce the number of deposit disputes.

Please support this petition and help us make the letting process more transparent for all

As the Private Rented Sector now covers a fifth of all households (EHS 2015-16), it’s crucial that tenants and landlords abide by a fair move-in/move-out process.

Key figures:

– A third of 2,500 tenants admitted having their deposit withheld and 68% believed their landlord didn’t provide good enough reason to do so (Hillarys, 2017).

– 40% of students lose well over a third of their deposit when they rent privately, while 79% do not sign a photo inventory when they move in (Money.co.uk, 2016).
