    DILAPIDATION DILAPIDATIONS

  • Dilapidations are a state of disrepair in property for which there is a legal liability to remedy. Failure to observe, prepare or comply with your lease terms can be costly and could lead to legal dispute.

    At TSP we help our clients avoid these pitfalls by providing simple, impartial guidance whilst exceeding clients expectations, every time.

    DILAPIDATIONS EXPLAINED

    TSP begins the negotiation process on your behalf

    Settlement

    You’ve decided to leave...

    • Landlord claims often are over-estimated • TSP Surveyors meet at property with landlord’s surveyors and initially

    validate what has been entered on the schedule • TSP Surveyors contest items and rationalise costs • Consideration given to S.18 (valuation) defence and issues of betterment

    and supersession

    • If financially settling, agreement is documented and signed • Works would be signed off with landlord • If a dispute arises, advice as to third party action is given

    • Your lease expiry or break option triggers the landlord’s dilapidations claim • Process starts approximately six months before lease event, but can be

    earlier for large properties

    THE TSP 5 POINT PROCESS

    • Dilapidations schedule requested from landlord • All items of reinstatement / disrepair / decoration identified • Property inspected by landlord’s surveyors • Landlord’s financial claim established and is presented to you in the form

    of a schedule of dilapidations, sometimes called a ‘Scott Schedule’ • TSP analyses the schedule, your lease and any other circumstances before

    attending the site and beginning negotiations • RICS endorsed Dilapidations Protocol followed throughout

    • Depending on landlord’s response and the case as a whole TSP will recommend either financial settlement or carrying out works

    • If works are required, TSP project manages and delivers completed refurbishment to the required standard

    • S.18 valuation undertaken if required • If financially settling, final amount is agreed with landlord

    Calculating the final cost to you and assisting where necessary in carrying out any works

    The landlord is now entitled to seek damages to bring the property back to a lettable condition

  • DILAPIDATION DEFINITIONS

    CASE STUDIES TSP SUCCESSES

    RICS ENDORSED DILAPIDATION PROTOCOL This is a framework for the dilapidations

    process, defining how long each side should take to respond to the other, and the manner

    in which they should do so.

    THIRD PARTY ACTION If the surveyors appointed by the landlord and tenant are unable to reach an agreement, the settlement can be decided by a third party. This is usually an Independent Expert or Arbitrator.

    S.18 VALUATION This is a specialised type of property valuation. It defines the loss of value the landlord has suffered as a result

    of the property’s disrepair.

    SCOTT SCHEDULE This is a list of repairs required, prepared by the landlord’s surveyor and quantifying the

    amount of their claim.

    BETTERMENT & SUPERSESSION These are terms used if the landlord intends to improve the property beyond the level required by the tenant’s lease. They could render any tenant works valueless and consequently the landlord’s claim can be limited.

    DILAPIDATIONS This is the term for the repair and

    reinstatement you are responsible for at the end of your lease.
