There should be. If you can’t find it, request it from the landlord or prepare one yourself. It is frustrating to discover that the some of the items or fittings you are paying for in the property were taken by the former tenant or don’t actually exist. It is definitely unlawful if you are charged for fittings that do not exist or that were stolen. In any case, the appropriate thing to do is have a run through the inventory, check for fittings and fixtures that are not in very good condition, take a photograph if you can, make a copy for yourself, then give the newly amended inventory to the landlord for appropriate action to be taken. Little wonder Plunkett says, “Give a copy of the amended inventory to the landlord, keeping a copy for yourself.”

Ideally, fixtures should in no circumstance be removed, if they can be pulled out with light force, then they certainly aren’t fixtures. A property with poor fittings and fixtures could be discouraging to prospective tenants.
