Our expert chartered surveyors uniquely include both distinct disciplines required.
Getting the right combination of specialist surveyors can have a significant impact on the value of a dilapidations claim, so it is important to have the right experts on your side.
- Chartered building surveyors to assess and negotiate the cost of remedial works, and
- Chartered valuation surveyors to apply the statutory cap (S18 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1927 in England & Wales and S65 of the Landlord & Tenant (Amendment) Act 1990 in Ireland). The cap means that the compensation due to a landlord for breached covenants to repair (decorate and reinstate alterations) will be the ‘lower of the cost of remedial works OR the impact (if any) upon the property’s freehold value.’
Heading up a wide network of both Building and Valuation surveyors based across the UK and Ireland are Paul Raeburn and Neil Burridge.
What Others Say
Dilapsolutions’ valuer battled hard for me, with informed and powerfully persuasive reports, and we received the settlement I needed to put things right.
Their building surveyor negotiated the works cost down to less than half, and then their valuation surveyor managed to negotiate it lower still.
Mr & Mrs Cardwell
Our solicitor engaged Dilapsolutions, who clearly have the experience and complex skill sets to win, because we ended up settling at £10k!
Dilapsolutions successfully argued it could only be relet if modernised and so mitigated a significant portion of the claim against us.
