AIIC Inventory Insight – April 2014

Some of the articles included in this months issue:

Administration Charges: Following on from the big stink about clarity of agents (and landlords) administration fees to tenants, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has suggested that a re-draft of tenancy agreement terms should include the statement that ‘the tenant is responsible for any reasonable costs incurred by the landlord as a result of a breach of a tenant’s obligation’

Fire (Un)Safe Furniture: The recent BBC ‘Fake Britain; TV show has revealed that 8 out of 10 sofas and mattresses being sold by some of the UK’s best-known retailers are illegal and potentially lethal, failing part of all safety tests

Are You Protected: The lack of a decent inventory can cause huge problems at the end of a tenancy. No inventory means no proof of check in condition and therefore no chance of a landlord winning any dispute.
