Schedules of Condition for Landlord's with
flats to help you sort out property
Schedules of Condition are quite normal practice in commercial properties and in fact we regularly carry out Schedules of Condition on offices, warehouses and shops. Schedules of Condition can take many formats and are tailor made and do help provide landlord's with a structured way to look after their properties and also to deal with tenant concerns.
We would recommend you call us on free phone 0800 298 5424 for a friendly chat when we can explain how we can make Schedules of Condition work to help you. We also carry out many other kinds of property work everything from Expert Witness cases if you are taken to court under the Leasehold Tribunal Act and give advice on Landlord and tenant issues together with structural surveys looking at property problems and Valuations and re Valuations as well as dealing with Planned Maintenance and Planned Development.

How can a Schedule of Condition help you and your tenants?
A Schedule of Condition can establish the existing condition of the property, highlight areas where improvement of main issues can be carried out and establish a priority list which you can then agree with your tenants and also establish who is responsible for the various issues.
What type of property do you own?We are often asked what type of property can Schedules of Condition work with and our answer is any multi occupied property. With older properties they have often been converted into flats from large Victorian and Georgian houses and we have equally dealt with mansion type flats which were built around the War Years.
We are comfortable and happy to deal with the modular and Non Traditional constructions that were built after the War and also very comfortable with the more modern construction properties. All of the different types of property construction have their advantages such as older properties tend to have harder wearing fixtures and fittings and can cope with a fair amount of use and abuse which a modern property simply cannot although it will no doubt have a better thermal efficiency
Please see our surveying articles on
We should start by explaining what a sinking fund is; a sinking fund relates to regular payment for future maintenance which is usually for large items such as major roof repairs. We are aware of one block of flats which took over two years to come to an agreement on major roof repairs and during that time everyone was unable to sell their flats on as the maintenance dispute was putting prospective purchasers off.
The Landlord and Tenant Act and Leasehold Tribunals
There are of course various regulations relating to leasehold properties which state items which can and cannot be carried out by landlords and tenants. We believe by appointing an Independent Surveyor such as 1 st Associated.co.uk is the fairest way for both the landlord and tenant to deal with any property problems.
