Schedules of Condition and Dilapidations
These reports are issued to tenants and landlords who are entering or ending a lease agreement. Lease agreements, and especially the repair clauses within a lease agreement, vary according to a number of factors, so it is important for them to be drawn up by a qualified specialist. Schedules of condition and dilapidation are intended to identify, with the assistance of photographic evidence, the condition of a building.
The schedule of condition is a record of the property’s condition that takes into consideration the repairing terms of the lease and is usually prepared for the tenant prior to occupation or upon lease renewal. A dilapidation report is used by landlords to assess the condition of a property or building at the end of a lease, allowing them to determine if any repairs are required in line with the terms of the lease.
