Schedules of Condition

A Schedule of Condition is a detailed photographic report which records the state and condition of the property elements at the time of inspection to protect your interests.

A Schedule of Condition is essential to protect you and save you money when taking on a commercial lease of a property. Both landlords and tenants should consider carefully what their responsibilities are in relation to the property and their obligations with repairs and maintenance.

This is an essential document which can limit or prevent any overstated claims at the end of the lease, in terms of a tenant’s repair and reinstatement liability.

Dilapidation Assessments

At the end of a lease agreement, a tenant usually has to return a rented the property back to the landlord in an agreed condition (as specified in the rental lease agreement). It is essential that tenants, especially those with long-term leases, plan for the dilapidation of the property and budget for any make good repairs that may be necessary.

We will appraise your property and provide a detailed assessment of your anticipated dilapidation liability that you can expect at the end of the lease.

The dilapidation assessment identifies any repairs or maintenance and associated costs that the tenant will be financially liable for when the lease expires under the terms of the lease. This information provides the detail required to allow you to plan your exit strategy.

What our clients say

“Just wanted to thank you for this survey – we’ve been told that the RICS 3 surveys are detailed, but this is just exceptional work in comparison to some of the samples we’ve seen (even our broker was surprised, and he’s seen a lot!) and it gives us really good insights into how we want to approach the buying process from here. The level of “nitpicking” (in a good way!) is remarkable and I really appreciate that Manor Surveyors seem to put quality first.”

Simon Skrabanek

“Absolutely amazing service. Laura was helpful and efficient and then once our survey had been completed Paul was happy to call me and explain everything. Could not fault them at all. Original house purchase fell through and we were more than happy to use Manor again for our second purchase as they were so helpful and efficient. Thanks so much xxx”

Katrina Khalifa

“I have used them twice and received a very professional and efficient service from both Paul and Laura. Paul has provided us on both occasions with very in-depth Home Reports which were excellent value for money. I highly recommend them and wouldn’t use anyone else!”
