Dilapidations Help & Advice for Tenants & Landlords

Landlord or Tenant, we can save you time and money

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 core strength within the Eddisons Building 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.
