Bidwells provided advice and oversaw the dilapidations process of a 10,000 sq ft laboratory building on Cambridge Science Park to ensure that the tenant understood and complied with their repairing liabilities at lease end.
What we did
Inspected and compiled a detailed schedule of dilapidations based upon an assessment of the breaches in the tenant’s repairing obligations in advance of the expiry of a short term five-year lease to ensure that the tenant was aware of their obligations
Coordinated a specialist team of surveyors and M&E consultants to ensure that the claim fairly reflected the disrepair and alterations which the tenant was responsible for when they vacated the property
Clear and early interaction with the tenant and their advisors provided the opportunity to have the works completed before lease expiry
A clear understanding of the potential claim and the future use of the building prevented a drawn out negotiation process after the tenant had handed the building back
The landlord was able to put an in-repair laboratory building back on the open market at lease expiry, rather than incur a delay to the process whilst the building was repaired
