Instructions were received to represent the former Tenant where the Landlord had served a Schedule of Dilapidations (a report that provides a precise breakdown of repairs that must be scheduled to reinstate a property to its original condition as stated in the lease agreement) at £1.5 million.

Our Building Surveyor assessed the Schedule of Dilapidations at £800,000.

In light of this, we produced a Diminution Assessment (loss of value) at £250-£300,000 stating that certain works agreed between Building Surveyors would not impact the reletting of the building considering its age, character and locality.  These included:

  • Cleaning roof, painting warehouse floor, painting internal steelwork
  • Offices/welfare facilities are dated and likely to be fully stripped out and modernised

This enabled a settlement to be reached at £400,000, saving the client in excess of £1 million from the Landlord’s original claim.
