What do you need to know about schedule of dilapidation surveys?
A schedule of dilapidation survey will cover any defects in a property present during or at the end of a lease. It will highlight any places where the leaseholder has broken lease terms, and will include details of any repairs considered appropriate by the landlord, though in response to this the leaseholder can commission a survey of their own. There are certain conditions for whether or not a landlord can insist on action from a tenant based on the survey; specifically if the lease is for seven years or more, or if there are over three years left on it. A professional will be able to advise you on your legal rights relating to a survey, as well as help you settle any disputes resulting from it.
It is important to check the qualifications and expertise of your potential hires: you must get a licensed and certified surveyor. They may be a part of a national group such as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, which would be a strong indicator of their expertise. Such organisations enforce high standards and codes of conduct on members. It is a good idea to look over customer reviews for your options; were the surveys they did adequate to resolve the disputes of their clients? Getting a quote over the phone should be free and simple as you will usually be charged based on the size of the property. Take the time to collect and compare a number of quotes before making your final hire.
