Sending your inventories to us using Imfuna

We know many of you use the Imfuna Let mobile inventory app. We’ve been working with Imfuna to make it easier for you to submit inventories to us in the event of a deposit dispute.

So, how does it work?

> Use the app to compare the check-in and check-out reports

> It will highlight any changes to the condition of the property after running the comparison

> Once you’re ready, simply enter your DPS Deposit ID for the tenancy then press send - the document will then be sent directly to us

We’re working with similar inventory services to expand this option to more of you - watch this space.




Floored by the evidence   

Be the Adjudicator is our interactive case study designed to give you a better understanding of how we come to decisions in the event of a deposit dispute.

Take notes while ‘Emma’ takes you through our latest case. Following damage to a wooden floor, the landlord and tenant can’t agree who should get the deposit.

Are you confident you can make the right decision?

What will you decide?
