The inventory is drawn up when a tenant arrives and again when they leave.
- If the owner refuses to draw up an inventory:
They must prove that any damage they cite at the end of the lease is the tenant’s fault.
- If the tenant objects to an inventory being drafted when they move into the property, they will be presumed to have found it in good condition.
- If, due to the negligence of the owner and tenant, no inventory is drafted at the start of the tenancy,
the tenant will also be presumed to have found the property in good condition. Thus, in the event of no inventory being provided at the time of arrival,
the tenant, according to article 1731 of the Civil Code, is presumed to have found the property in a good state of repair and must leave it as such, and will thus be liable for any damage they are suspected of causing during the tenancy:
"If no inventory has been taken, the tenant is presumed to have found the property in a good state of repair, and must leave it as such, excepting proof of the contrary."
