I will be moving out from a rented property on 18 March. I requested the right to be present for check out inventory, but I was informed that this is illegal for tenant to be present in the flat during check out. Check out has been booked for 19 March. Is LL right? Do I have right to be present.
Also, before I moved in, LL asked same inventory company to compile check in inventory and he sent me that document to signed after I moved in. Unfortunatelly report I didn;t agree to the report (it looks like same company was doing inventory check for many years for same LL) because it contaned lots of stuff in the report that was not in the flat when I moved in (example: 2 wall clocks while there is one, more wall pictures etc.). There were lots of discrepencies. I said to LL that Company should correct report but he said that I don’t need to sign and it is valid without my singature !! I shouldn’t ignore this like that 2 years ago, but I was busy with my work and now when I am moving out I am a little bit stressed.
So 2 questions:
1) Do I have right to be present in the flat?
2) If company say that I removed e.g. 1 clock from the flat, what to do? I have e-mail evidence that I sent to LL with a long list what’s missing and also first minute I did after moving in was to take photos (around 500) and I uploaded then to Google Drive, so it has upload timestamp.
Thanks for your advices
