Get Estimates for Schedule of Dilapidations
Do you have a repairing obligation as part of your lease? Is your landlord insisting that you carry out repairs or pay for works he is going to carry out? A Schedule of Dilapidation is a survey carried either midway through the Lease and / or near the end of the Lease. These are called either the interim or terminal schedule of dilapidations respectively. Both documents highlight the terms of the Lease and indeed what repairing obligations are outstanding, and therefore would need to be completed by a certain time. The modern style of these is to highlight the necessary Lease Clauses, repair obligations, works needed and costs involved, with a feedback column for the other side. This is put in the form of a Scott Schedule to allow for ease of understanding over the issues. Both Landlord and Tenant should get a property expert, normally a building surveyor, to negotiate on their behalf to make sure the repairs being requested are in line with the wording of the Lease. How much of the building is included in the repairing obligation will be defined in the Lease. Some clauses may specify the timing of repair, for example painting the interior in set time periods.

There is of course no obligation to use any of the property experts that you have been introduced to.
At the end of the Lease term all the clauses must be adhered to. Before the end date it is important to identify what work needs to be done and enter into dialogue with the Landlord to come to agreement with the works that will be carried or alternatively a financial alternative. A Chartered Surveyor will be able to assist you in both understanding the terms of the Lease, identifying any breaches in the building condition and negotiating with the other side over points of disagreement. A dilapidation survey helps determine or limit any dilapidation claim made by the landlord. If indeed a Schedule of Condition was agreed before the Lease was undertaken, then this as well as the wording of the Lease with regard to repairing obligation would be considered as well as any other surrounding documentation including a Licence to Alter as well as surrounding legal statutes
