Although dilapidation claims are a long standing part of English Law and commercial property leases, many Tenants do not understand the true nature of their dilapidations liability.
In many cases, if Landlords don’t communicate with Tenants in preparation for the claim, then the process becomes costly and potentially damaging to both parties.
Therefore it is in everyone’s best interest for the process to be understood and professionally managed long before the lease expiry date.
At Robertson Simpson, we represent Landlords and Tenants both separately and together. We often represent both parties and help them to reach an amicable position.
