At or towards the end of a lease, it is normally necessary to establish the condition of a building to assess whether the repairing covenants and other parts of the lease have been adhered to. A Schedule of Dilapidations is normally prepared where the landlord's surveyor believes that there are necessary works required to the building to comply with the terms of the lease. Examples of dilapidations include a broken window or leaking roof. Costs for repair are usually prepared as part of the schedule.
A Schedule of Dilapidations allows the landlord to be compensated for wear and tear to the building. We will act for landlords in preparing a claim, or for a tenant who wishes to defend a claim.
