As a landlord, you have some obligations to perform to ensure that that your property is safe before the commencement of any tenancy. These include mortgage lender consent, smoke alarm, insurance, EPC, and furniture.
Full deposits taken from tenants should be registered with the appropriate deposit scheme which could be DPS, My Deposits or TDS whichever one you prefer. You are required by law to register with a government-approved scheme any tenant deposit to ensure the protection of such deposits.
Deposits are made to cover for any damage or breach of the tenancy agreement at the end of the tenancy. The inventory taken at the start of the tenancy is used to confirm this.
Tenancy & Moving in
Both parties are required to sign the tenancy agreement ensuring that the details on the inventory are accurate. You should have a copy as evidence in case of any mix-up. As soon as all necessary documents have been signed, deposits and complete rent has been paid, the keys can then be released to the tenant.
