Landlords could benefit from a new business venture designed to help protect them in disputes with tenants.

Redbrick Inventories has been set up by former landlord Carl Haagensen to provide evidence for private landlords caught up in disagreements with their lodgers, reports the Journal.

According to, a government-approved tenancy deposit scheme, landlords must back their case with sufficient evidence if they wish to withhold a deposit.

As such, Redbrick Inventories provides landlords with both paper and CD copies of photographs as well as a walk-through video of their property before it is rented out.

One copy is also given to the tenant and the footage can then be used as evidence if the landlord feels that their property has been mistreated.

David Salusbury, chairman of, said last month that preparing an agreed inventory with the tenant will allow landlords to provide evidence of any damage to the property or furniture, while bank statements could also be useful in highlighting non-payment of rent.ADNFCR-2002-ID-18968994-ADNFCR
