A schedule of condition is carried out in order to record the condition of a property so that any existing disrepair can be identified and evidenced. This may be required in various situations, such as:
- an attachment to a lease, in order to limit a tenant’s dilapidations liability.
- in advance of building works to record the original condition.
- an annexation to a Party Wall Award.
