Chartered Building Surveyors in Leeds


The term Dilapidations relates generally to breaches of covenant in a commercial lease to keep a property in repair. This can also include a failure to observe decoration covenants and requirements to remove tenant's alterations (whether licenced or otherwise).

Inevitably the subject of dilapidations is a complex and contentious one, the costs for a failure to appreciate the covenanted liabilities under a lease can be significant. Qualified advice and guidance can be very valuable to Landlords where costs in damages may be obtained, and in a similar way for Tenants when presented with a dilapidations claim and savings may be obtained by eliminating those elements that are spurious or incorrectly claimed.

DPO Property has years of experience in commercial dilapidations claims acting on behalf of both Landlords and Tenants. We are well placed to offer timely and cost-effective advice to occupiers and owners at both lease commencement, during the term where interim dilapidations claims may be prepared and served and at or approaching lease-end where terminal dilapidations claims are most commonly served.
