Using a power rake would give the area heavy scarification and thatch removal, work up a tilth for the new seed and grade the site. You can use the same machine to spread extra topsoil if needed.
when you say poor condition are we talking lots of weeds, bare patches, uneven ? to renovate the lawn would cost a fraction of the price of laying a new one down unless your turf is extremely cheep other wise, hollow core, double scarify and remove thatch, over seed, then top dress, water regular and wait a month and you should see good results ?
not sure why do you need to kill the old one , if you just planting on top of it .
give me a ring on 01932566181 its easier to explain on the phone how to tackle this problem,
I've been approached by a client to lay a new lawn over the top of an existing one which is in poor condition. He suggested applying a weed killer like Round-up to kill of the old grass and then add topsoil and the new turf on top.
I've always used a rotavator in the past to dig up and remove the old lawn.
Are there any pitfalls to laying a new lawn on top of an old one?

Just joined this group as I'm looking to learn more about turf care this year - one of many Business Objectives I've set myself for 2011 !
I recently acquired a new customer who has extensive lawned areas which are in some parts extremely steep. I use a Mountfield cylinder mower which will be unsuitable - too heavy, it has a roller (striped effects not required) and will probably not handle the dips and slopes particularly well. Any ideas on a more suitable mower for the spring? I though a hover mower but these are electric.
