Dilapidation Surveys for Tenants
Commercially, your building lease will usually contain a clause that states that you vacate the property in a similar state to when you first occupied it.
Most tenants are aware of their responsibility whilst staying in the property and understand that the maintenance of the property is strictly adhered to. The issue is, whenever there is a contract there is always the margin for disagreement and that is where Allcott Associates can help, by working with you and acting on your behalf regarding any dilapidation claim.
Our chartered building surveyors firstly make an assessment of the property, and then advise you on the credibility of the landlord’s claim ensuring that only matters that are your responsibility are included.
A dilapidation claim is as much a legal issue as a cost and repair issue. It’s important to make sure you do things accordingly – a long legal claim can be difficult on our clients; we make sure the whole process goes smoothly and we do our best to save you from a costly and unnecessary legal nuisance.
Unfortunately, landlords and tenants often go head to head in legal battle which is totally unneeded. We feel that some decisive straight talking is all that needs to be done in order to settle the claim easily.
