Dilapidations refer to a breach of contract between a landlord and a tenant that will provide compensation to one party and a financial liability to the other.

A landlord will usually serve a schedule of dilapidations on a tenant towards the end of their lease which will basically be a schedule of works that the landlord requires the tenant to undertake when they leave their premises at the end of the lease.

There are usually many reasons why this can be negotiated with the landlord to either reduce the claim and subsequent financial payment to the landlord or alternatively, the tenant could carry out the works themselves to a much reduced specification.

Our in depth knowledge of the case law and procedures surrounding this complex area of Landlord and Tenant has enabled us to achieve immense savings on a regular basis for our many clients.

Early preparation before the lease expiry is crucial so that steps can be taken to limit the potential claim for damages and prepare for success. We provide a strategy to achieve this end and ensure results.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your individual case. Fees are usually calculated on a success basis.
