The AIIC petition for compulsory independent inventories starts

Dear Members/Friends,

We are really pleased to announce that after much preparation we have now started a petition calling on the Government to discuss enforcing unbiased independent inventory reporting as an essential part of the residential letting process.

Full protection should be offered to all parties within the letting process and independent inventory reporting is the only way to ensure that no bias reports are used. This will also enable the Government’s Tenancy Deposit Scheme to have sufficient impartial evidence to enable them to adequately adjudicate should there be a dispute. We have seen more and more evidence of tenants being made to sign bias reports in return for their keys, mostly unaware that the inventory report is compiled by a landlord, agent or source that is not third party or unbiased.

This must now be stopped.

Please help us by sharing the petition via the below link to as many people as possible.

Please help us to make tenancies safer for all parties:
“Make independent inventory reporting of privately rented properties compulsory”

Click this link to see our petition and start sharing it:

Petition: 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.
Best Wishes,

Danny Zane & Emma Glencross
