Tenants Surveying Advice


If you are taking on a leased property this will normally have a full repairing and insuring lease known as an FRI lease and as such you will be liable to carry out repairs and maintenance on the property. You can limit this by having a Schedule of Condition prepared. We are more than happy to do this and we prepare lots of Schedules of Condition. We consider our Schedules of Conditions to be very detailed which limits your future liability. At the end of the lease it is likely that your landlord will serve a dilapidations notice on you. If they do we are more than happy to help you negotiate the liability. To discuss this in more detail please Freephone a surveyor on 0800 298 5424.
