Dilapidations Schedule Epsom

As a professional team of Chartered Surveyors in Epsom and the surrounding area, Tim Greenwood & Associates offer expert property services including Schedules of Dilapidations. We have the expertise to work for landlords and tenants, providing professional advice on Lease obligations.

The tenant’s Lease liabilities when the Lease period is coming to or has come to an end is set out in a Schedule of Dilapidations. This is typically prepared to set out the tenant’s liabilities with regard to any damage or disrepair caused to the property during the period of the tenancy. The Schedule may also include the reinstatement of alterations, as well as redecoration requirements along with elements of disrepair and associated costs. If needed, a Schedule of Dilapidation may also be served as an Interim Schedule during the Lease term; this requires the tenants to deal with any elements of disrepair during the term of the Lease.

It is in the landlord’s best interest to ensure that the property is properly maintained and well kept throughout the period of the tenancy, since he will want the property to be returned in the best possible condition, given the Lease requirements.

In order to be able to address and plan for any reinstatement, redecoration and repair elements required in the Lease, the tenants will look to a Schedule of Dilapidations for the necessary information.

The Importance of a Schedule of Dilapidation

A Schedule of Dilapidations must be served in good time before the end of the Lease, in accordance with the legal dilapidations’ protocol, to give tenants sufficient time to address the items contained within it. Claims may carry less weight is the Schedule has been issues after the end of the tenancy. Disputes as a result of a claim should be dealt with by surveyors or, if all else fails, in a Court of Law.

Tenants in Epsom are advised to enlist the help of an experienced surveyor to provide them with early dilapidations advice and guidance; there is no need to wait for a Schedule of Dilapidations to be served by the landlord. In this way, tenants have a modicum of control over the dilapidations process, including costs, which could save them money if repairs are carried out in good time. Tim Greenwood & Associates would advise tenants to be proactive in seeking early, professional dilapidations advice.
