“It’s important to be thorough when documenting your
inventory. You never know what you might need to claim for,
so it’s crucial to cover all areas. Some commonly overlooked
areas that are often missed are the inside of fridges, ovens,
and washing machines, the oven and the extractor hood, and
the inside of cupboards, wardrobes, both sides of mattresses
and bathroom units.” (pg 10, Landlords guide to Inventories, NRLA & TDS)
