Get Estimates for Schedule of Condition
Are you buying or Leasing a property? Will this include taking on the repairing responsibility of the property? If it is residential or Commercial it is important to consider A Schedule of Condition. A Schedule of Condition is a type of survey that is commissioned before the signing of a lease and is carried out in order to determine the condition of a property asset so that any existing defects and their repair costs are identified prior to any commencement of work or that repair obligation being passed onto the tenant. The schedule of condition documents the condition of the building so that any existing defects and their repair costs are identified prior to any commitment being made. Please be aware that the Landlord may not agree to a schedule of condition being put in place, at that point the property expert will discuss the risks
Depending upon the client’s requirements, the Schedule can record the asset’s principal features only, or may be prepared to a very high level of technical detail.

A Schedule of Condition may be drawn-up for a variety of purposes, including:
- As an attachment to a lease, to limit a tenant’s dilapidations liability
- By the commissioning or non-commissioning parties in advance of building works
- By neighbouring land owners prior to remediation works
- In support of a Party Wall claim
The objective is to determine and document the condition of the building so that any existing defects and their repair costs are identified prior to any commitment being made. It will also note potential future defects that might need attention later. Leases usually stipulate that the tenant is responsible for any repairs during and at the end of a tenancy so it is important that the tenant is not committed to any liability above this. A good schedule of condition survey can often be used to negotiate with a landlord to ensure that existing defects are corrected prior to the start of the new lease.
At the end of your lease, a dilapidation survey will be needed to determine or limit any dilapidation claim made by the landlord.
