Commercial tenants under lease are likely to be legally required to keep premises in good repair, decorated and statutory compliant with electrical, gas and other legislation.
If this isn’t managed, landlords are increasingly instructing professional advisors to submit Interim Schedule of Dilapidations during the lease term, or they will legally serve a Notice to Repair, or if the lease is coming to an end a Terminal Schedule of Dilapidations within the last 12 months of the lease. Each of these scenarios can be time consuming and not to mention costly for tenants especially. We work with many Landlords, Tenants and Chartered Surveyors in these situations and we highly recommend planning for any lease event and ensuring the premise in question is retained in a condition required by the lease.
We are specialists in navigating these tricky and potentially expensive issues. If you are a tenant we believe the best way to retain control of costs is to undertake the works required prior to lease expiry, as we know many tenants get caught out at the end of their lease and costly legal disputes frequently arise.
