Make Goods

At the end of a lease the tenant has obligations to return the premises in the condition defined by the lease on expiry. Make Good Assessment is a schedule of building defects or disrepair which occurs during the term of a lease. For property owners a Make Good Assessment Schedule specifies the scope and cost of works, relative to the repairing covenants of the lease, to be completed by the tenant prior to vacating the premises. Make Good/Dilapidation Schedules are prepared following a thorough property inspection and careful consideration of the lease documentation. Although generally prepared towards the end of a lease, schedules can be prepared during the term and even after the lease has expired – to ensure the property is maintained or to recover costs for damages. The Sydney Facility Service Property Consultancy service is delivered in two stages – firstly, the Make Good Assessment phase followed by the Negotiation phase. Make Good Interim Schedule – during the term of the lease to identify outstanding repair and maintenance obligations
• Make Good Interim Assessment – during the term of the lease to define potential liability at lease expiry
• Make Good Terminal Schedule – prior to lease expiry to define liability at lease term and initiate negotiation and remediation works
• Make Good Final Schedule – after lease expiry
• Make Good Negotiations – Acting as independent negotiator the professionalism of Sydney Facility Service ensures a superior and more effective outcome whilst maintaining positive Landlord and Tenant relations
• Make Good Project Management – after lease expiry for Lessor
• Make Good Forecast (AIFRS) – at lease commencement to define make good liability for financial accounts and / or asset management plans
Sydney Facility Service offers specialist services in make good reporting and negotiations. A Schedule of Make Good is a detailed report that outlines requirements of a tenant (lessee) to bring the existing property back into a state of condition and repair that it was at the lease commencement, based on repairing covenants detailed in the specific lease. Sydney Facility Service provides Make Good services on behalf of both landlords (lessors) and tenants (lessees).
