Welcome to Dilapsolutions

At Dilapsolutions we are the only dilapidations consultancy achieving optimum results for both landlord and tenant clients in negotiating dilaps UK-wide, by uniquely providing the input of both the chartered building surveyor and the chartered valuation surveyor (Valuer). The building surveyor’s role is to identify disrepair etc and price remedies.The Valuer’s expertise is required in addition,to advise if you are affected by the legal provision that dilapidations damages should be the lower of the Cost of the Remedial Works, OR the effect (if any) the breaches have on the property’s value.

Get in Touch

Often the impact on the property’s value is far less than the total cost of all the remedial works. For most second hand properties,there is a point in objectively targeted expenditure beyond which spending can continue in pursuit of perfection,but no more will be added to, or recovered in, the property’s value. The law of diminishing returns invariably applies.Hence why the legal “cap” on damages.Whilst this might seem to favour tenants,there are situations where a landlord will also benefit from the Valuer’s input in providing a Diminution Valuation. This could be to rebut a deliberately low opportunistic one prepared for a former tenant;or if as owner,you do not plan to do all (or most) of the remedial works upon which your damages claim is based,then the Dilapidations Protocol (para 9.4) requires that you must instead provide a Diminution Valuation in support.
