What is Office Dilapidations?

Construction Dilapidations Office Maintenance

The simple definition of dilapidations is restoring a property to its original condition once the Tenancy Agreement or Lease has come to an end. It’s a complex and specialist field and claims should be handled by experts.

Many tenants go into a lease agreement without any knowledge of this clause and end up with a hefty bill at lease end. In order to avoid tenants should be aware of the following:

The Tenant

As a tenant, it is important to familiarise yourself with the lease terms and what the dilapidation implications for maintenance and repair are, prior to signing a lease of a property.

It is crucial for tenants to obtain dilapidations advice at the pre-lease stage if the financial costs of term end disputes are to be minimised. Getting advice from a Building Surveyor can considerably assist in the new lease negotiation. Before lease end, it’s advisable to get a Dilapidation Liability Assessment (DLA) done, in order to distinguish the cost implications and perform any works while you’re still occupying the office space.

Regular planned maintenance and repair during the term should help minimise lease end expenditure.
