Inventory Check List

Once you have checked in you will be asked to review and submit an Inventory Check List to confirm the content and the condition of the inventory provided in your apartment. This will be done online this year. We ask you to do this as there will be deductions taken from your security deposit if there are items missing or damaged once you leave. If you do not submit the checklist the inventory record will be as per our record.

  • Electricity bill – Your last electricity bill will not arrive until after you have vacated your apartment. Therefore, this will be deducted from your deposit, as you will not be here to pay this bill.
  • All outstanding fines for damages, Lock Outs and Overnight Guest Stays will be deducted from your security deposit.
  • Cleaning charge – Cost of €100.
  • Deposit return bank details – Can you please ensure that reception has a copy of your details for the return i.e. Name of account, IBAN & BIC. It is your responsibility to make sure these are in order & if they are not found to be, there will be a delay in your Deposit return. Your Deposit minus the above deductions will be transferred back into your account the first week of July.
