Schedules of Condition - A Silver Bullet
Our recent article in EG on Schedules of Condition (SoC) is as salient when taking on a new lease, as it is when negotiating dilapidations at lease end. For the latter, the relevance is for the valuer as well as the building surveyor. A good SoC can, for example, provide the Valuer with evidence to argue that the property was tatty at the outset, and whilst the building surveyors might argue about detail differences at expiry, that it is more or less similarly tatty makes for no probable Diminution in Value.
The article below was first published by EG on the 14th of January 2022 (reproduced with their permission).
