Dilapidations – minimising costs
*Dilapidations – If you’re on the move you will have to restore your existing workspace in accordance with your lease agreement. Dilapidations are often wrongly considered by tenants to be insignificant in comparison with rent, rates and service charges when they are seeking new premises. However, the liability to repair can have serious financial implications and therefore the tenant must seek the advice of a Chartered Surveyor on opportunities to avoid, limit or mitigate dilapidations before entering into a lease, or when a schedule of dilapidations has been served upon them.
Rap Interiors are experts in helping clients “re-use” materials and items from the office space you are leaving ( that needs to be removed in line with dilaps clauses in your tenancy agreements) and utilising them into the new office space plan. Our Design team incorporate items we list that are to be removed into the new office design which reduces costs for the new office fit out. Our value-add is always to maximise your budget and create a fantastic new workspace refurbishment.
