Inventory Schedule of Condition

A Schedule of Condition report provides a detailed analysis of the overall condition of the items listed in the inventory. When determining any costs for deduction, the condition of the items at the start of the tenancy should be cross-referenced against the condition of these same items at the end of the tenancy.

In the event that any amendments have been made after the inventory has taken place, should be noted on a separate addendum, agreed by both the Landlord and Tenant/s.
