Creative advice with a commercial focus on managing dilapidations risks


Landlord tenant relationships can be complicated, especially when it comes to deciding whether the tenant has looked after the landlord’s building properly.  Even agreeing what the lease means in practice is often an area for expert interpretation, and that’s before the mass of case law and dilapidations practice needs that need to be considered. 

Both parties need strong advocacy based on the right mix of technical knowledge and negotiating skill. We have unique advantages as dilapidations specialists; access to in house experts like mechanical and electrical engineers, façade consultants and environmental experts, so our advice is always detailed and comprehensive.  Then, we’re building experts. We know what it takes to repair and maintain everything from a Medieval timber frame to a high spec city office tower. We have in house cost consultants too, working day to day in the construction market, so our pricing is always accurate and reliable.

However, the extra value we create comes from knowing the nature of the wider property market – as only a full-service surveying firm can do – because dilapidations is a lot more than merely about how much a repair costs.

Finally, and most importantly, we approach dilapidations from a commercial perspective. Working hard to achieve the best outcome for our clients, using all our experience representing both landlords and tenants, in each case seeing the world as they see it.
