What are Dilapidations?
Tenants enter commercial leases agreeing to keep premises in repair to a certain standard, but for any number of reasons they don’t.
The dilapidations process assesses – either during the tenancy or when it ends – what disrepair has occurred and whose liability it is to fix and how much it will cost.
Whether acting for a Tenant occupier or Landlord investor, we can provide the correct advice, aligned with your needs to ensure that you have a strategy in place to deal with the lease expiry.
