Yes this is a very important thing to do. The first property that i rented ended up costing me an extra 600 pounds due to furniture that was already damaged before i moved in. Some landlords are crafty and will always find a way to keep hold of your deposit.

You can also print it out and mail it to your self. Then let the judge open and see for himself.
