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 lease term.   

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