Dilapidations Schedule Horsham

Offering specific advice tailored to suit the needs of both landlords and tenants, Tim Greenwood & Associates provides detailed Schedules of Dilapidations along with a variety of additional property related services.

A Schedule of Dilapidations is a document designed to detail the physical state of a property that is normally drawn up approaching the end of a lease. It sets out the tenants’ liabilities in ensuring that the property is returned in the same condition in which it was let. This can include elements that have fallen into disrepair during the tenancy, redecoration requirements, details of a reinstatement alterations and the costs involved in those alterations. While a Schedule of Dilapidations is normally served at the end of a lease, an interim Schedule can be served where needed.

It is within the best interests of the landlord that a property is maintained throughout the lease. Ideally, a landlord should always want a property to be returned in the best possible condition that provisions will allow. In order to ensure that this is the case, a Schedule of Dilapidations will help tenants to perform the necessary renovations following the lease end.

The Importance of a Schedule of Dilapidation

When approaching the end of a tenancy, it is essential that a Schedule of Dilapidations is issued before lease end in order for the tenants to be given enough time to make good on any renovations needed. If a claim is made and a Schedule of Dilapidations issues after the end of a lease, this claim will hold less weight than if it had been issued before lease end. In these instances, disputes and even court cases can arise, which may be expensive to resolve. By drawing up and serving a detailed Schedule of Dilapidations in good time, landlords can avoid such disputes from occurring.

Tim Greenwood & Associates will always recommend that tenants do not sit idly while waiting for a Schedule of Dilapidations to be issued. By taking a proactive approach towards the end of their lease and seeking professional assistance independently, they can start making the necessary preparations to ensure any renovations needed are conducted accordingly. This also helps to reduce the costs of renovations, covers tenant liabilities and allows tenants to retain some level of control over the process.
