Frequently Asked Questions About Dilapidation

What is property dilapidation?

Dilapidation refers to the deterioration of a property over time. It includes both structural and non-structural issues, affecting the overall condition and value of the property.

What is a dilapidation survey, and why is it important?

A dilapidation survey is a thorough inspection of a property to assess its current condition. It is crucial before, during, or after a lease to document existing issues, helping to determine liability for repairs and maintenance.

When should a dilapidation survey be conducted?

Dilapidation surveys are typically conducted before the start of a lease (pre-lease), during the lease term, and at lease termination (post-lease). This helps establish the property’s condition at various stages.

Who is responsible for property repairs and maintenance in a dilapidation claim?

Responsibility for repairs and maintenance depends on the terms outlined in the lease agreement. Both landlords and tenants have obligations, and a dilapidation survey helps determine each party’s liability.
