Dilapidations & Services Charge Consultancy
What are dilapidations?
Dilapidations are items of disrepair or defects which tenants are required to rectify or pay to have remedied under repairing covenants contained in the lease.
The following types of covenants are relevant to the tenant’s liability for dilapidations:
- Covenants to comply with statute
- Decorating covenants
- Repairing covenants
Covenants to yield up and which require reinstatement of the premises to a specified standard at the end of the term.
Where tenants have been occupying multi-let premises, dilapidations claims at lease end can be further complicated by service charge issues. Contact us for more information.
