Dilapidations

Dilapidations

A breach of the repairing obligations in a lease, either by the landlord, or the tenant, gives rise to dilapidations. Claims for the remedy of disrepair and reinstatement of the physical state of a property or for financial damages relating to dilapidations can be made during or after lease end. This is a complex area of property law, with a number of related Statutes and case law.

The procedures and timescales relating to this are often crucial in successfully pursuing or defending claims. Whether you are a landlord or tenant, our Building Surveyors and Services Engineers have knowledge of the legislation, can identify the remedial work required, prepare specifications, assess costs and advise upon how to deal with the matter in the most effective way.
