DilapidationsDilapidations relate to both tenant’s and landlord’s obligations to repair, decorate, reinstate a property or perform legal and regulatory works during, or at the end of a lease. We develop dilapidations strategies for both landlords and tenants using our knowledge of dilapidations law and current case law. By using an expert to handle effective negotiations, you can ensure your settlement is achieved quickly and efficiently. Tenants We’ll minimise the settlement to ensure you’ve got funds for your move to a new premises, or to boost your cash flow. We also offer dilapidations advice for tenants taking a new lease, which will minimise the liability when you leave the property by providing expert knowledge applied to the building’s current condition and review with your solicitor. If needed we may also prepare a schedule of condition to attach to your lease, which will also limit your repairing obligations. Our dilapidations assessment service also provides you with a clear indication of your liability during your lease term and a clear strategy as to how to extinguish those obligations to minimise your financial outlay, during and at the end of your lease. Landlords We’ll maximise your settlement to ensure you’ve got funds to repair, redecorate and reinstate your property and increase its capital value and desirability to new tenants. Dilapidations is an extensive field or law and is differently applied to each property, but our experts are on hand to guide you through the process, whatever the situation. Contact Us
