From a Landlords perspective, we will deal with the preparation and serving of dilapidations schedules working alongside appointed solicitors. Lease clauses will be carefully examined and assessed prior to any inspection, and we will seek to obtain all necessary information, including any licence agreements, lease plans and schedule of conditions. We will then negotiate a settlement or monitor the tenants’ works.

From a Tenants perspective, we will endeavour to reduce the dilapidations claim to its minimum level, in line with the new CPR rules. We will explore any relief from the claim by way of Section 18(1) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927. Upon receipt of confirmed instructions, we will check whether the scope of the schedule of dilapidations is accurate, whether the standards of repair required by the schedule is justified and finally, how and when any repairs should be conducted or whether negotiation of a financial settlement in lieu of damages would be preferable.
