Schedules of Condition are carried out in two scenarios:

When development works are being carried out nearby, the preparation of such a report protects both the adjacent property owner and the developer as it records the current condition of the adjacent property in both text and photographs. The report will identify the location, type and extent of any current defects in a building.

Condition Surveys are also commissioned by tenants entering into lease arrangements. They do so in order to have a record of the condition of the property at the outset of the lease to protect the tenant in the event that the landlord serves a Schedule of Dilapidations on the termination of the Lease. Again the report sets out the condition supported with photographic evidence.
