Who holds the deposit during the tenancy?
At the commencement of and throughout the tenancy we hold the deposit in our Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) regulated clients account, and it will be protected by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS).
Do JW Wood carry out an inventory inspection?
Yes, prior to the tenant moving into the property, we prepare an inventory and photographic schedule of condition. This documentation is agreed when the tenant moves into the property and referred to at the checkout inspection when the tenant moves out to finalise matters regarding the return of the deposit. We carry this service out at no additional cost regardless as to whether we act as managing agents for the property or are only employed to find tenants.
