Dilapidations Assessments

Dilapidations generally apply to commercial or industrial premises and cover the works that tenants are obliged to carry out within the terms of their lease to maintain the buildings to a high standard.

DilapidationsTenants who fail to comply with their lease will be served with a schedule of dilapidations by their landlord, outlining the extent of repairs, reinstatement and redecoration required, usually towards the end of the lease term.

As Chartered Building Surveyors we are experts in dealing with dilapidations, from preparing schedules for landlords and negotiating settlements on their behalf to defending and negotiating the dilapidation claims of tenants.  Because we understand the complex legal implications facing both sides of a dispute, we can make the journey through the process a smooth one.


Are you leasing industrial or commercial property?

We will review the lease documents and can offer strategic advice on mitigating and limiting liability under the lease agreement. Towards the end of the lease period, we can assess the specified repair works to ensure they comply with the lease terms and dilapidations law. We will then analyse and negotiate any dilapidations claims.
