We also carry out Schedules of Condition if you are contemplating a lease or for Landlords, if the lease is coming to an end and the property has been neglected we can carry out Schedules of Dilapidation. We can also assist on rent reviews, lease renewals etc., probate and inheritance tax valuations and capital gains for both domestic and commercial properties.
We also advise if you are about to rent a commercial property or enter a lease that you have a valuation carried out to check that you are paying the market rent. We can also advise on the terms of the lease to see if they are fair and just, or whether there are certain obligations that should be removed from the proposed lease, particularly if say, it is an old building. Often leases that say “to keep in repair” mean to “put and keep in repair”, which makes you responsible for putting right previous tenants lack of maintenance of the building. Requesting a Schedule of Condition prepared by ourselves and insisting that the Schedule be incorporated into the lease should only make you liable for any future deterioration of the building and for a few hundred pounds outlay, this could save you thousands of pounds in liabilities attached to a lease of older premises that are not subject to a Schedule of Condition.
