Taking on a new lease can be a daunting prospect and no-one wants to be saddled with extensive repair obligations once they have signed a lease – a schedule of condition can therefore help identify existing condition and restrict liability. We can also help where a schedule of dilapidations has been served in respect of an existing lease and reduce cost liabilities being claimed by landlords. Conversely, if you require schedules to be served on existing tenants, in depth dilapidations can be produced.
Correctly prepared schedules will ensure properties are maintained to the correct standard and tenants are aware of their liability.
There are many aspects of condition that are not easily detected without proper access and we are also finding clients benefit when we hire access platforms, or undertake drone surveys to get to those areas that may not have been seen for many years!
