What are Dilapidations?
Dilapidations are a Landlord’s claim in respect of alleged repairs and making good to their property. As per the terms of their lease, they require their tenant to address these in advance of the end of the lease term.
Dilapidations will cover all condition changes to the property from the tenant’s start of lease, until the end of the lease.
They can include, however are not limited to repair, decoration, reinstatement or replacement.
When is a Schedule of Dilapidations Required?
As the end of the tenant’s lease term approaches, it is normal for the landlord to take stock of the property condition in the form of a Surveyor’s Report known as a Schedule of Dilapidations.
Once armed with this report, the landlord serves it upon their tenant, thereby ensuring the tenant has ample opportunity to address the various dilapidations prior to their departure.
Our robust approach to property defect detection ensures our Dilapidations Reports are comprehensive and thorough, ensuring our landlords are fully informed of the property condition post lease term.
We pride ourselves on flagging up and documenting all property condition changes, defects and elements that require making good or replacement.
This approach ensures our clients are fully aware of the condition of their property as the tenant’s end of lease term approaches.
