Schedule of Condition

A schedule of condition survey is generally commissioned before the signing of a lease in order to determine the condition of the building so that any existing defects and their repair costs are identified prior to any commitment being made.

The schedule of condition survey includes a report on the condition of the building together with notes concerning potential future defects that might need attention.

Commercial leases usually stipulate that the tenant is responsible for any repairs during and at the end of a tenancy, so it is vital that you fully understand your potential liabilities before signing your lease.

Often, a schedule of condition survey can be used to negotiate with your landlord to have immediate defects corrected prior to your taking over the lease and thus save you considerable sums of money. For example, if you are taking over an existing lease, the chances are that you will inherit the repair liabilities from the outgoing tenant.

At the end of your lease, you will need a dilapidation survey in order to counter any dilapidation claim made by your landlord.
