A property is always a subject to maintenance or customize. If an owner is holding a property, he/she is always required to settle for the ways to maintain the property from time to time. Maintaining property deals with activities like painting, grounding wires, constructing new walls, flooring, lightings, partitioning, installing switches, etc. All these activities are combinedly called leasehold improvement. If a property owner is letting the property for rental purposes, he/she should mention the conditions for the leasehold improvements. In many cases, the owner himself takes responsibility for the leasehold improvement, while in other cases, he lets his tenants maintain it.

The conditions for leasehold improvements vary from properties to properties. There are real estates which are let for a huge rental purpose like the construction of a playground or a disc or a shopping mall or supermarket, shops, etc. In such cases, the tenants themselves are responsible for checking for the leasehold improvement policies. The reason behind this is, these fields are completely professional and needs special maintenance needs from time to time. The owner himself cannot take responsibility. 

There are certain cases, where the owner can approve for a particular budget or allowance to pay for the leasehold improvement. This budget is calculated according to the allocated square feet of land or the property. Every year, the estimated rent amount is increased for the purpose o renovation when the tenant has signed a contract for the long term. This way, the owner pays for the leasehold improvements.

Leasehold improvement can also be calculated based on Stanford allowance. Stanford allowance is such a budget where the owner offers the tenant with a few budget options which may not meet the satisfaction level of the tenant but can serve the purpose. For example, the colors of the paint, design of the tiles, design of the taps, etc.
