The landlord has accepted my notice to end the lease. I have been notified that an Inventory Check company – of the landlord’s choosing – will inspect the property. I am to pay the £90. fee for this inspection. I am not to be at the property when the check is being done. I have been given a day which does not allow for any eventualities should the cleaning company I have hired not arrive on time, and if I want to change the appointment from that which the Inventory Company has given me, then I will have to pay a cancellation fee. I have also been told that I must drop off the keys at an estate agents office – many miles away – in good time for the Inventory company to collect them. There has never been a management company involved, just me managing everything so I cannot ask advice in that quarter.
Considering that I am paying the fee and thereby hiring this Inventory Check company, it seems to me unfair that I have no say in any of the arrangements and must tolerate being told what to do constantly.
Any words of advice would be welcomed.
