    Dilapidations

    Dilapidations is the term used by solicitors and surveyors to describe the breaches of covenant and disrepair of a building for which the tenant is liable for during their tenancy and/or when their lease has ended.

    Our aim for landlords and tenants is to interpret the lease requirements fairly - but the requirements vary with each lease and each building.

    The right advice can make a difference of tens of thousands of pounds, and if you can contact us early  (six months before the lease end is best) then this gives a tenant more opportunity to save cost and the landlord has more chance to get their building back in good repair without a prolonged dispute - we appreciate this is not always possible, however, and we can advise on strategy for landlord or tenant even after the lease end.

    Our recent involvement includes claims from £5,000 to £500,000 plus, acting both for Landlords and Tenants.
