Schedule of Condition (Ingoing Tenant)

Most commercial property leases require an outgoing tenant to return the property in the condition it was in at the start of the lease. A Schedule of Condition is a written and photographic record of the property and can prove the condition of the property at the start of the lease. Without this the landlord could require a commercial property tenant to do work that was unnecessary and would put the property in a better condition at the end of the lease than it was at the beginning.

With the cost normally amounting to a few hundred pounds at the start, a Schedule of Condition can save a lot of unnecessary expense and discussion at the end of a lease – particularly when the landlord may have a rental deposit from you that they’re withholding unless you do unnecessary work to the property!



    • “We recently used Sussex Surveyors to complete a building survey for a property that we hope to buy. They kept us up to date with the process and provided a thorough report in a short time frame. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a similar service.”

    • “I needed a house valuation for probate. Sussex Surveyors were able to carry it out in five days and their completed report was sent to me two days after the inspection. I found the service professional, efficient and polite, they were aware of what I needed, and their completion of the report was prompt. I would use the service again.”
