WHAT IS A SCHEDULE OF CONDITION?

A Schedule of Condition is a detailed and factual record of the condition of a property. The Schedule of Condition is usually prepared for contractual reasons to establish the condition of the property at a set date in time, usually the commencement of a lease agreement or in party wall agreements, this can be carried out on either residential or commercial premises.

A Schedule of Condition can be instructed by the following:

  • Landlord
  • Tenant
  • Employer
  • Contractor
  • Neighbour

Having a Schedule of Condition completed by an independent expert provides greater gravitas to the record of condition in the event any party raises a claim or negotiation.

There is a big difference between how a Schedule of Condition is carried out and used, and a Condition Survey. The Schedule of Condition is a record of the condition of a building with descriptive annotations and photographs, usually appended to a legal document, whereas a Condition Survey is prepared to identify the condition of the building and also what works are required.
