Schedule of Condition
A Schedule of Condition provided by our Dilaps Surveyors is an essential report when appended to a lease. A Schedule of Condition details the property elements at the time of inspection to protect your interests.
When taking on a commercial lease of a property both landlords and tenants should consider carefully what their responsibilities are in relation to the property and their obligations with repairs and maintenance. Our Independent Chartered Building Surveyors are specialists in dilapidations and if you are taking on a lease; are currently leasing or at the end of your lease dilaps advice now will save you time and money.
A Schedule of Condition is a detailed photographic report prepared by our Chartered Building Surveyors, which states the property condition at the time of the survey and reduces time and money negotiating the dilaps claim at the end of the lease.
Put and Keep
When leasing a property the tenant needs to “put and keep” the property in repair, a Schedule of Condition and a Property Report will enable the tenant to ascertain the extent of the works required. A Schedule of Condition will help a tenant understand the condition of the property and necessary repairs at the time of the inspection and repairs that are or may be likely by the end of the lease.
Our Dilaps Surveyors include Action Required within our Schedule of Condition to enable the tenant to understand and budget for work required.
