Our experienced team, consisting of chartered surveyors and property lease specialists, work with owners and occupiers of both commercial and residential property on a number of lease issues including guidance on dilapidations.
Dilapidations are best described as lease exit costs to the tenant of restoring the property to its pre-let condition, which could mean repairing any damage caused or undoing any cosmetic alterations. A tenant will usually receive a Schedule of Dilapidations at the end of their lease period, which can often lead to disputes between tenant and landlord.
As we see an increase in the amount of short-term lets, the issue of dilapidations is becoming more and more prevalent as the turnover of tenants grows. Our experience in mediating and solving dilapidation disputes is a core strength within the Eddisons Building and Project Consultancy team. We specialise in advising both owners and occupiers on legal and valuation issues that surround dilapidation claims upon the expiry of a commercial or residential lease.
If you are a tenant or a property owner and need advice in the area of dilapidations, our expert team of chartered surveyors are perfectly placed to assist. This is a particularly pertinent area of lease advice and our team have vast experience in mediating disputes and delivering the most optimum outcome.
