Schedule of Dilapidations

Dilapidations is a fundamental element of the commercial tenancy process, and it is essential that both owners and occupiers are aware of their dilapidations obligations throughout the lease cycle, to ensure buildings are maintained and to limit the chances of a dilapidations dispute arising at the end of the term.

Our dilapidations surveyors have extensive experience preparing schedule of dilapidations, or delap surveys as they are often referred to, for landlords or acting on behalf of tenants who have received a dilapidations claim. Across the southwest, we have gained extensive experience acting for a diverse range of clients, from small independent business owners to blue chip asset management firms with dilapidations claims ranging from £10,000 to £5,000,000.  We also have experience working with industry leading Section 18 valuation experts, to both avoid and resolve the deadlock that can often occur under the key schedule of dilapidations arguments of diminution of value and supersession.

Dilapidations Claims

There are many factors which can affect dilapidations and dilapidation claims that have a significant impact on the liability of costs, including improvement measures required to let unlawful properties with an F or G rated EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) superseding elements of the schedule of dilapidations. We work through such complex issues to deliver clear advice and strategy at an early stage of the dilapidations instruction, and proactively seek the best resolution of the dilapidations claim.

Our holistic approach to dilapidations, gained through our commercial experience across the core services, ensures that we provide pragmatic and commercially minded advice to landlords and tenants of all sizes throughout the southwest.
