The landlord (overseas in Ireland), has just advised today that they can arrange for one of their Fathers to pass through on Wednesday (the last day of tenancy) to hand over the keys.
But, they mentioned (via same email) that they will have to get back to us confirming when about doing the inventory.
What is the recommended way forward in this instance -- as handing over the keys (the final tenancy date), is surely handing back the property?
Does an inventory need to be done before handing over the keys? - otherwise, anything could happen to the property from that date to the inventory being executed.
Is there a legal limit in days the Landlord can delay an inventory (after the tenancy has ended).
Also noted on the TDS document (download via their site) -- our ending date is 24th Sept 2013 (although our actual tenancy has ended in writing 24th July 2013) - is this something that needs to be updated (via Landlord contacting TDS?) of end of tenancy earlier that that date?
Wouldn't this also delay the TDS deposit being concluded? (no inventory done yet)
How does TDS know our new physical address (do we contact TDS? or this landlord ?)
All meter readings have been done and photos of entire property/garden done also.
Just handing over the keys and inventory left to do.
What is the best way forward please.
