Question

When do I need to start thinking about dilapidations?

Answer

Before you take a lease. A survey will establish the condition of the premises, giving an indication of work that may be needed, both immediately and later. If the premises are already in bad repair, special considerations apply (see below). During the term of the lease, regular or planned maintenance can avoid greater expense later. It is usually a good idea to record the condition and layout of the premises before you occupy.
