Aiming to limit future liability

Schedule of Condition reports. Knowledge is key. 

Whether you are about to let or rent a property, a Schedule of Condition should be given serious consideration. A Schedule of Condition protects landlords and tenants by outlining and agreeing the state of a property, plus any potential repair work required at the outset of a letting agreement. Additionally, it can often include an inventory of fixtures and fittings.

Walker Wood’s specialist team are happy to provide initial Schedule of Condition advice to landlords and potential tenants.

A Schedule of Condition records the condition of a property, and is most commonly used in leases and Party Wall agreements to protect both landlords and tenants. It documents the mutually agreed state of a property at the beginning of a lease and any potential repair work which may be required during or at the end of a lease. An agreed Schedule of Condition is a highly effective way of limiting future dilapidations liability. It is particularly important as a new tenant may, potentially, inherit disrepair caused by the previous tenant.

Two choices of Schedule

Walker Wood Chartered Building Surveyors offer two separate services; a photographic Schedule of Condition, or a photographic and text Schedule; which is most appropriate for you is dependent upon circumstances and the type, size and complexity of the property. The amount spent on a Schedule of Condition Survey can be relatively small compared to being issued with a dilapidation claim.

Our Chartered Building Surveyors are always happy to have an informal discussion of your individual requirements and the type of Schedule that best suits your situation.
