What are dilapidation works?
The term “dilapidation works” is a term generally used in the reinstatement or repair of a commercial properties during the course of a tenancy lease period. This can happen for a wide range of reasons including modifications made by a tenant. These may have been undertaken so the property better served the tenant’s business or may have been simply due to negligence in the maintenance of the building. Either way, the structural deterioration is needed to be made good so that the property is returned to the condition when the Lease Agreement was signed.
The work may be instigated by either the landlord or the outgoing tenant but either way, we can help. It can sometimes be in the interests of the outgoing tenant to have the work undertaken as the end of tenancy approaches. This can mean dilapidation cost savings since the work is being done directly for them. It can also avoid expensive landlord fees that might be incured that the landlord may charge for lost rental whilst repairs are made before the property can return back onto the market.

End of Tenant Lease Dilapidation Surveys
We recommend a thorough dilapidation survey since they can often highlight the full extent of damage that might not be apparent from just a rudimentary inspection. Without this the symptoms of a problem may be treated without actually addressing the root cause. Moreover, most insurance companies particularly in the determination of the structural integrity of the building.
