LANDLORD OR TENANT DILAPIDATIONS
EXPERTS CRAIG ASSOCIATES
WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY
Dilapidations is a general term which covers a breach of covenant to repair a building or a part of a building included in a lease.
In the case of either a commercial or residential lease there are usually obligations imposed upon the Tenant to keep the building or the part they occupy in good and tenantable condition. If they fail to do so the financial implications can be very serious.
It is essential to use a chartered surveyor that not only has a detailed knowledge of construction but also an understanding of the many legal issues in this complex area of law.
