Expert Commercial Building Surveyors

What is a Schedule of Dilapidations

A Schedule of Dilapidations service includes a thorough inspection of a property that aims to identify any damages or breaches of lease obligations that may result in dilapidations particularly related to the repair and maintenance of the property.

The report issued to the client after the property inspection and examination of relevant documentation (e.g., lease, schedule of condition) is the schedule of dilapidations.

The service may be carried out on behalf of either the landlord or tenant. A Schedule of Dilapidations would generally be prepared at the end of a lease, but it may also be requested during the lease term if the landlord or tenant believes that there are breaches of the lease that need to be addressed.

A Schedule of Dilapidations can help both parties understand their obligations under the lease and ensure that the property is maintained to the required standard.

Schedule of Dilapidations - Landlord

If you own a commercial property, a Schedule of Dilapidations can help you ensure that the property is returned in good condition when the lease ends.

One of our experienced engineers will carry out a thorough inspection of the property, examine the relevant documentation, and produce a report detailing any damages or breaches of lease obligations that may result in dilapidations (items of disrepair or defects). This information can be used to negotiate a settlement with the tenant before the lease ends, potentially reducing your financial liability.

A Schedule of Dilapidations is an essential service for commercial property owners to protect their investment by ensuring its condition is maintained to the agreed standard.

Schedule of Dilapidations - Tenant

Commercial tenants are responsible for maintaining a leased property in accordance with the agreement in place. At the end of a lease, landlords may require repairs for damages or lease obligation breaches, known as dilapidations.

To avoid unforeseen costs, tenants should consider having a Schedule of Dilapidations prepared to identify damages and breaches while prioritizing repairs and leaving the property in good condition.

This service can assist in protecting the tenants’ financial interests and facilitate a smooth handover at the end of a lease.
