How do you list items of personal property on an affidavit specifically?
To describe something with particularity and specificity, a person should describe the item with as much detail as they are able to. For example, when claiming replacement damages for personal property, the court will try to assess the replacement cost for a similar item at fair market value in the local area. As much identifying information as can be provided will help the court to determine the replacement cost for a similar item.
Therefore, it will be easier for the court to determine the fair market value of a screwdriver, if rather than providing a general description of "screwdriver", the screwdriver is identified by size, model, manufacturer, material, and original cost, such as "6 inch, ABC brand, plastic handled, Phillips head screwdriver, model #11223, purchase price-$10." The year of manufacture may also be relevant. Basically, as much detail as is able to be provided will assist in determining the value of an item. In an affidavit, listed items should be listed on separately numbered lines for easier reference.
