Keep Your Deposit Safe
Its good news that the TDS will ensure that your money is better protected, but how will disputes be resolved if the inventory was not thoroughly checked and verified at the start of the tenancy is inaccurate or out-of-date?
Peace Of Mind
Make sure you request a detailed inventory and a comprehensive check in process when you move into your new home, to minimise any disputes at the end of your tenancy.
When you are moving out, check the inventory again and ask for a thorough independant check out, and make sure you are present if possible.
The check out will involve a detailed check against the original inventory for any changes to the items and condition of those items, that way you should have no surprises over deposit deductions when the check out report is presented to the agent or landlord.
