We help commercial landlords and tenants to meet their obligations in relation to dilapidation claims and manage any negotiations that may arise between the two parties. 

The expert knowledge you need with the personal service you expect


We assist landlords and tenants with negotiations relating to dilapidation claims. We advise on any dilapidation liability that may be applicable, supported by a property inspection and issuing a condition report or building survey.

A dilapidation claim will usually occur at the point of lease renewal or break when a landlord believes the occupier is in breach of its repairing, decoration or reinstatement obligations as set out in the tenancy agreement.


Our service includes 


  • Schedules of dilapidations during, or at termination of lease
  • Terminal dilapidation claims compiled
  • Schedules of Condition prepared for attachment to leases
  • Interim Schedules and Repair Notices prepared
  • Management of the completion and monitoring of dilapidation works
  • Expert Witness services when dilapidation disputes escalate
  • Section 18 valuations prepared by RICS registered valuers
  • Defence of dilapidation claims
