To ensure that the reinstatement cost assessment is accurate and adequately safeguards your most valuable asset, it should be performed every three to five years, as advised by the RICS.
Schedule of dilapidations
For the purpose of evaluating the property’s condition, the surveyor will conduct a dilapidations survey. Following that, they will draught a schedule of dilapidations report outlining their findings. The report will cover any lease covenant violations and include information on the kind and price of repairs required to return the property to the pre-lease condition. The surveyor will use the schedule of conditions, if one was created and attached to the lease, to determine how the property has changed over the course of the lease.
As a property owner, it is essential to ensure that your property is well-maintained and in a good state of repair. A Schedule of Dilapidation is a detailed report that identifies any repairs or maintenance that need to be carried out to restore a property to its original condition. This report is typically prepared before the end of a lease term or at the time of sale, and it helps to protect both the landlord and the tenant’s interests.

Dilapidations surveys for tenants
We will undertake a Dilapidations inspection to help the tenant understand their dilapidations liability at the end of the lease. This will help budget for any foreseeable costs which they will be liable for when the lease comes to an end. As a tenant, you may be able to challenge the landlord’s list of required repair work, referred to as a schedule of dilapidations. We may be able to reduce the figures and/or demonstrate that certain items should not have been claimed. The landlord may not in fact intend to repair the property; he or she might plan to demolish or alter it in which case the dilapidations liability will be reduced. Tenants are typically responsible for paying the costs of any repairs required to restore the property to the condition specified in the lease, as well as the costs incurred by their landlord in hiring a chartered surveyor to conduct a dilapidations survey and create a schedule of dilapidations.
