Our solution

Our expert chartered building surveyors will ensure you understand your potential dilapidations liabilities before you serve a lease break or begin negotiations. We then work with you and your legal team to develop a strategy to manage risk and minimise your dilapidations liabilities, negotiating on your behalf.

Offering pragmatic, practical advice geared to your objectives

We provide pragmatic advice geared to achieving the outcomes you seek. Our dilapidations service will help you understand and mitigate your repairing obligations, minimising the costs and hassles of dilapidation claims.

Where a Section 18 defence is to be employed, our specialist diminution valuations experts provide accurate, independent advice on valuation in dilapidations disputes. Our valuers have a comprehensive understanding of the legal framework, the property market and current values. We work closely with our agency teams in the local market to provide market-focused advice based on sound legal principles.

Delivering technical and commercial expertise

Our dilapidations experts are market leaders in their field, dealing with around 1,900 cases each year. With a deep understanding of commercial lease agreements we typically reduce tenant liabilities by 40%–50%.

All of our instructions are placed with a senior member of our team, providing direct, hands on experience gained over many years of working with public and private sector clients like BT, Babcock, Heineken UK Ltd and Henderson Global Investors.

At every stage, you can be confident of the technical expertise of our network of qualified chartered building surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers. Our building consultants have been assessed by a peer group of experienced professionals and judged to have the blend of technical and commercial skills necessary to operate at the highest level in today’s property and construction markets.
