The frequency of use, the type of elevator it is, what it is used for, and how well you keep to the maintenance schedule. You obviously have a duty of care and proper upkeep however not all is lost if you do discover you need a new lift in your building. If possible, and if the engineer sees fit, you can have a lift refurbishment instead of an entire replacement. There are many benefits to having your lift refurbished instead of replaced, the main one being that there is less disruption to the building.
