Depreciation Schedule

The following chart gives the average life expectancy for common items in rental property.  We will prorate based on the age of the item.  If a written guarantee of certification of a different life expectancy is provided at the time the claim is submitted, we will prorate accordingly.

Proration for interior painting is based on the standard three-year schedule.  For example, if the unit required painting after two years of occupancy, we would allow 1/3 of the cost.
