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.

More details

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 (, 2016).
