What is it all about?
A schedule of condition is sometimes requested by a potential tenant to a new or assigned lease as a means of limiting their liability. Ordinarily a tenant will need to keep a property in repair, which can mean putting the property into repair even if it is not in repair at the outset.
A schedule of condition records the standard of the property so that the tenant does not have to put the property into a state of condition any better than it is recorded in the schedule.
Why might you need us?
We are able to prepare schedules of condition, being a factual record of the condition of the property. Our schedules of condition include both a description and a photographic record of any defects and the general condition because photographs alone are often unclear when it comes to making the assessment at the end of the lease. Conversely, a photograph can be clearer than descriptions in certain circumstances.
