Dilapidations Schedule Reigate

For professional advice and assistance in a range of surveying services in Reigate, including Schedules of Dilapidations, Tim Greenwood & associates serve to ensure that all clients have all the relevant information they need. With experience assisting both landlords and tenants where a Schedule of Dilapidations is concerned, our knowledgeable team are able to help clients in Reigate save money on property repairs.

A Schedule of Dilapidations is a document designed to detail the physical state of a property for the benefit of both landlords and tenants. It is normally drawn up approaching the end of, or following the end of a lease, setting out a tenant’s lease liabilities. This can include details of elements that have fallen into disrepair during the tenancy, details of a reinstatement alterations, redecoration requirements and the costs involved in those requirements. Landlords are also able to serve an interim Schedule of Dilapidations if needed, although a Schedule is normally served at the end of a lease.

To ensure that the property is well maintained throughout the lease, it is within the best interests of the landlord to provide both a Schedule of Condition at the start of the lease and a Schedule of Dilapidations upon approaching lease end. Once a lease has ended, a landlord should always want a property to be returned in the best possible condition provisions will allow. A detailed Schedule of Dilapidations will allow tenants to perform the necessary renovations to ensure that this remains the case.

The Importance of a Schedule of Dilapidation

When issuing a Schedule of Dilapidation, it is important that the landlord provides the tenants with enough time to make good on that report prior to lease end. Any claims made following the end of a lease will have less weight than claims made before its end and could be disputed in a court of law. In order to avoid such claims going to court, landlords should be able to draw up and issue a Schedule of Dilapidation in good time.

Tim Greenwood & Associates recommends that tenants do not wait for a Schedule of Dilapidations to arrive, taking a proactive approach towards the end of their lease. By seeking early dilapidation advice you are able to make the necessary preparations for renovation costs. This can cover tenant liabilities and save dilapidations costs, also allowing tenants to retain some control over the entire process.
