Second, we will complete a full survey of the property to inspect all defects, damage and alterations. This has a number of purposes, including to compare the condition of the property to what it was at the start of the tenancy agreement, and therefore what rightfully falls under the criteria for dilapidations. This part of the process is greatly helped if a schedule of condition survey was undertaken at the start of the tenancy – another service we provide.

Our team of experts will also determine the likely cause of any defects, i.e. whether they can be attributed to the tenant or to general wear and tear, and then compare details from the survey to what was set out in the tenancy agreement to confirm responsibility for repairs. Finally, our experienced surveyors will provide full costings for any repair and restitution work that needs to be carried out.
