As Chartered Building Surveyors, we have extensive experience in advising both landlords and tenants on dilapidations issues (such as disrepair or breaches of lease covenants) and recommending strategies for negotiation and successful resolution.
We can prepare interim schedules of dilapidations, detailing items of disrepair requiring rectification or terminal schedules served at lease termination.
Our pre-lease termination services provide early advice allowing repairs to be undertaken prior to the end of leases. This aids financial planning, prevents deterioration and avoids costly and time consuming repair works being undertaken at the end of a lease.
Dilapidations is a complex area which was further complicated by our tenant going into administration, meaning that we had to deal with their guarantor. Using their extensive experience and robust knowledge, ACTUA undertook negotiations on our behalf to ensure that we obtained a fair and reasonable settlement for the arising dilapidations issues. This brought what had been a protracted process to a quick and successful resolution. I would not hesitate to employ ACTUA again due to their professionalism, knowledge and considered approach.
