Working with residential and commercial clients, our extensive portfolio includes carrying out dilapidations surveys for various types of building and offering valuable dilapidation advice to landlords and tenants at the end of a lease.

Dilapidation Advice For Landlords and Tenants

Commercial leases will typically include clauses that specify the liability of both the landlord and tenant when it comes to repair and maintenance. Known as Dilapidations, understanding how much either party is responsible for can be a complex matter and seeking professional guidance is highly recommended.

At Brian Gale, we offer a number of services for both landlords and tenants to help them prepare and respond to dilapidation procedures. Specifically for landlords, our surveyors offer an interim internal Schedule of Dilapidation to assess the condition of a property during the tenancy in order for them to make an informed plan for the end of the lease. For tenants, we can provide advice at the beginning of a tenancy so that so that they may fully understand their potential dilapidations liability at an early stage.

If required, our surveyors will or represent either party during an end of tenancy negotiation to agree on a financial settlement or a scope of works. Otherwise, we will offer professional recommendations and negotiation strategy for landlords and tenants prior to an upcoming lease termination, sale and lease back situation, lease assignment or lease renewal. We understand that every situation is unique and will require specific advice tailored to the individual client and lease agreement.

Even if you are taking an assignment of an existing lease it is essential that, as a potential tenant, an experienced Chartered Surveyor is brought on board to give professional dilapidation advice.
