You may be a landlord or managing agent of commercial property, like a shop or commercial business unit. You may require a schedule of condition at the outset of the lease; or a lease review or the drawing up of an interim; or a terminal schedule of dilapidation – at the end of a lease. The ‘Scott Schedule’ format is normally used so that lease obligations can be costed.
Once the premises are ‘yielded up’ back to landlords, we also can provide a design and specification to bring your premises up to a condition ready for a new tenant.
If you’re a tenant taking out a lease for shop or business premises; it’s advisable to instruct a surveyor to help you with understanding the obligations you’re taking on and to carry out a schedule of condition of the premises to avoid disputes at the end of the lease.
A surveyor can also help tenants with responding to a Landlords quantified demand/notice at the end of a lease term and negotiate on your behalf the costs/damages with the landlord that they are claiming from you. A commercial valuer and solicitor may also be required as part of the negotiations.
Provide us with some details of the property, such as type, location, area of the premises in sq/ft or sqm and call or email to discuss in more detail.
