The tenancy deposit protection scheme operator my|deposits has recognised the value of good quality dated video evidence. It goes on to recommend landlords use video inventories to help protect their rental property investment.
Their latest Guide for Landlords explains “video inventories are a helpful means of recording the condition of the property pre and post the tenancy” and confirms that “photographic video evidence to support a claim against a tenant will help everyone know where they stand”.
They rightly suggest that any photographic or video evidence is dated, and should be used in conjunction with a comprehensive and detailed inventory. This is exactly the method we use to help clients avoid losses or even have to enter a dispute at all.
