Schofield Surveyors regularly accept instructions from landlords and tenants involved in dilapidations. We can assist landlords in preparing and serving a Schedule of Dilapidations, continuing through to negotiating a claim with a tenant’s surveyor. For tenants, we encourage early consideration of dilapidations liabilities and can assist with early budgeting, continuing through to completing any required works or negotiating a financial settlement with a landlord’s surveyor.
To ensure tenants are aware of their liability with regard to dilapidations, we encourage early appointment to allow comprehensive assessment. This will allow a tenant to budget for a financial settlement, or to consider whether completing any necessary works is a more sensible business decision.
