DeVono Cresa specialise in advising commercial occupiers with dilapidation negotiation and program of works for their existing or new commercial premises.

Dilapidations is a very common situation in which occupiers have a responsibility to make good a property they currently occupy or previously occupied which is in disrepair. This involves either carrying out building repairs or meeting the landlord’s cost to provide the space back to the condition set out in the terms of the lease. Dilapidations claims are usually made either during or at the end of a lease.

Negotiating a dilapidations claim should be simple when you consider the different parts involved such as inspecting the property in question,  then agreeing the cost of the repairs which is followed by either doing the works or paying the landlord the pre agreed costs involved. However in practice dilapidations negotiations are far more complicated and require an expert in this matter to help with the valuation, building costs and legal elements. As DeVono Cresa specialise in only acting for occupiers are position to negotiate in your best interests is unrivalled and our knowledge of the legal principles governing dilapidations (such as Section 18(1) of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1927) are vital.
