Schedule of Dilapidations

A Schedule of Dilapidations is normally prepared on behalf of a landlord, towards the end of a lease. However, an Interim Schedule can be prepared during the term.

The Dilapidations Schedule sets out the items of repair that a tenant is required to carry out, under the terms of the lease.

Using their expertise and comprehensive knowledge, our RICS chartered surveyors will, for a Landlord:

  • Analyse the terms of the lease to highlight the tenant’s obligations

  • Carefully identify the correlation between tenant’s liabilities and any associated defects

  • Prepare a Schedule and describe the defect and wants of repair

  • Provide a detailed description of the remedy required

  • Cost the remedy, where required

  • Liaise with the Solicitor for acting for the service of the Schedule upon the tenant

  • Negotiate settlement on behalf of the landlord, by way of the tenant undertaking the necessary works, and / or, a monetary agreement.


For a Tenant, in receipt of a Schedule of Dilapidations, our Surveyors will:

  • Analyse the terms of the lease to assess the tenant’s obligations

  • Carefully identify the correlation between tenant’s liabilities and any associated defects

  • Assess the description of the defects and wants of repair

  • Determine the merits of the detailed description of the remedy required and agree the most cost effective solution

  • Cost the remedy, where required

  • Negotiate settlement on behalf of the tenant undertaking the necessary works, or, a monetary agreement.

 
 

Schedule of Condition


The incorporation of a Schedule of Condition within a lease can be in the best interests of both a Landlord or Tenant.

Neil Moran MRICS has extensive experience working with both Landlords, Tenants and their respective Solicitors, in agreeing on a Schedule, for incorporation into the lease.

The Schedule of Condition is prepared by carrying out a full inspection of a property. The findings are then set out in a tabulated format, describing each part of the property. It incorporates extensive photographs (or video footage) as supporting evidence.

The cost of preparing a Schedule of Condition is dependent on the type, size and complexity of any building. However, the cost of the Schedule of Condition is usually a small fraction of the likely savings that will be achieved in dilapidations liability or costs of the dispute between the parties. If a Schedule of Condition is not put in place.
