The purpose of a Schedule of Dilapidations is to identify breaches of covenant within a lease. The allegation of a breach of a covenant within a lease is the initial step in the process of dilapidations.
Lease obligations may be either express or implied and relate to repair, decoration and reinstatement of alterations along with certain costs and other specific requirements. The normal legal remedy for dilapidation breach is a claim for damages. Usually a Schedule of Dilapidations is prepared representing the actual damage suffered by the landlord or the tenant.
