Dilapidations arise when a commercial buildin, like an office block or a factory, need to be repaired following general wear and tear or, in some instances, minor structural alterations. Usually, it’s up to the tenant to ensure the property is handed back to the landlord in a good state of repair as a part of the schedule of works outlined in the lease.
Sometimes there are disputes about who is responsible for the repairs so it is always advisable for both the landlord and the tenant to seek the advice of a professional when drawing up the schedule of works.
It’s also important to employ the services of an experienced dilapidations company for the implementation of all compliance works and leasehold exit management services. If you don’t, whether you are a tenant or a landlord, you could run the risk of incurring unexpected costs at the end of your lease.
