Schedules of Dilapidations

Why choose Andrews Eades for your Schedules of Dilapidations reports?

A schedule of dilapidations is a report which identifies reinstatement, repair and redecoration works that a current tenant or lessee of a building would be required to rectify prior to the end of their tenancy or lease agreement. The schedule will identify each defect individually along with an appropriate remedy and reasonable cost should the landlord have to undertake the work themselves. Defects included within a schedule of dilapidations should reflect the repair clause within the tenancy or lease agreement, and associated costs should be a fair assessment of the landlord’s loss incurred by the tenant or lessee not maintaining the building in accordingly.

Our schedules of dilapidations are produced in the SCOTT format which is the industry recognised standard for how dilapidations are reported. We are also highly experienced in the Dilapidations Protocol which sets the best practice process and timescales for resolving a dilapidations claim.

Our surveyors are highly experienced and skilled in producing schedules of dilapidations for both residential and commercial properties and have negotiated many successful claims on behalf of clients.

What is the difference between a Market Valuation and an Insurance Reinstatement Valuation?2023-08-24T11:03:46+01:00

A market valuation will provide a value which the surveyor believes the property is worth at that specific time if it were to be sold. An insurance reinstatement valuation calculates how much it would cost to rebuild the property based on current labour rates and material costs.

How will you value my property?2023-08-24T11:03:31+01:00

All of our property valuations are formed using expert local knowledge of the housing market in combination with comparable evidence of other properties which have recently been sold in the area. Each valuation will also take into account the specific features of the property, with better amenities and setting often resulting in a higher valuation. Every valuation will be completed by a surveyor who is certified as a RICS registered valuer.

I am concerned that my neighbour has started building work close to my property. What should I do?2023-08-24T11:04:03+01:00

If you have not been served with a party wall notice by your neighbour then it may be that the proposed works are not notifiable under the Act, however there are occurrences where the works are notifiable but the neighbour has not served prior notice. In either case we would recommend giving us a call for further advice as the action required will vary depending on the circumstances. In the immediate term however you could ask your neighbour to cease works until confirmation has been provided by a party wall professional, and take photographs of your property to record its condition.

I have a dispute with my neighbour over the position of a boundary. What should I do?2023-08-24T11:04:20+01:00

In the first instance you should contact us to arrange an initial site inspection and letter report. As part of this we would undertake a site visit to analyse the boundary features on the ground, review available documentation, and provide initial advice on the dispute and your position. We would then be able to assist you in more detail going forwards if required, including writing to the neighbour on your behalf.
