Due to the Tenants Deposit Protection Scheme under the Housing Act 2004 from 06 April 2007, all deposits taken by Landlords under Assured Shorthold Tenancies (ASTs) in England and Wales must be protected by a tenancy deposit protection scheme. It is an essential requirement of the TDS that an inventory be compiled to support any dilapidations against the deposit. At Able Estates we have an in house Inventory Clerk available to visit your property and carry out a full schedule of condition and furnishings and produce an Inventory compliant with Tenancy Deposit guidelines. For more information on this service and prices please contact our Lettings Department on 01322 400222 or email lettings@ableestates.com
