Schedules of Dilapidation

Our Services include:

Brear Associates undertake the preparation of Schedules of Dilapidation for landlords whether interim Schedules or Terminal Schedules. As Building Surveyors we can professionally assess, schedule and estimate the cost of repair works to properties of all types.

Building Surveyors are ideally placed to prepare detailed specifications, obtain tenders and over see the repair work whether on behalf of a landlord or an outgoing tenant.

Our Schedules are prepared in accordance with the RICS Practice notes and the PLA protocols on dilapidations.

When acting for tenants we ensure that they obtain the best settlement for any claim. It is important that tenants only undertake the repairs for which they have a liability and not just those scheduled by a Landlords Surveyor.
