Dilapidations

Commercial and Office Dilapidations

If you are a tenant leasing a property, at some point you may be required to fund restoration works at the request of the landlord. These works are called dilapidations, and landlords are able to schedule them either during or, more commonly, at the end of a tenant’s property lease.

The amount of restoration work a tenant is required to do varies depending on the landlord’s preference. For example, many landlords simply request that the property is left in good and substantial repair and condition. This means that tenants must leave it in the same state of repair as when the lease was approved.

Other landlords may request that the premises in better condition than when the lease was granted. Tenants are liable to do this when the lease states they are to “put” the premises in good repair, as opposed to “keep”.

What Happens if You Do Not Fulfil the Dilapidation Obligations?

Failure to co-operate with the contractual agreement in relation to your office or commercial dilapidation means that landlords can claim damages for any loss suffered. This may include the cost of work supervision and/or the loss of rent and service charges during works.

Prior to entering into a lease, it is advised that tenants seek advice from a chartered surveyor. A surveyor will give guidance on how to avoid, limit or mitigate dilapidations before the agreement is in place.
