Dilapidations

Dilapidations

A breach of the non-financial obligations in a lease can lead to a dilapidations claim, which can be complex and technical, and the procedures and timescales are often crucial in successfully pursuing or defending claims.

As a landlord, you will want to preserve the value of your asset and be compensated for any losses that you incur as a result of your tenant failing to comply with their lease obligations. As a tenant, you will need advice on the validity and quantum of your landlord’s claim, as well as any statutory protection. In either situation, you need an experienced building surveyor and M+E expert with knowledge of the legislation, procedures, remedial work options and costs.

You need a trained negotiator by your side to help you achieve settlement of the claim and resolution of any dispute. We have a highly regarded, specialist team of industry-recognised dilapidations experts who can act for you and offer advice on how to deal with dilapidations matters in the most effective way.
