 Dilapidations  - essential advice and negotiations


What are Dilapidations? What are Dilaps?


Dilaps is a complicated process for which you should seek legal advice and appoint an experienced dilapidations pub/restaurant/hotel surveyor to help you with this. 

Dilapidations are the costs involved to the tenant when exiting a lease. In simple terms a Landlord will require the property to be left in a suitable condition for him to re-rent at the end of a lease.


What the Landlord, Pub owner and Brewery can do to you 


If the Landlord believes that the tenant has not honoured the requirements within the lease a Schedule of Dilapidations is issued and a legal process begins. This would include the removal of all of the tenant's fixtures and fittings and the reinstatement of any alterations or installations that the tenant has made unless these have been agreed in writing. 


How much will a Dilaps claim cost you?


The cost of a Dilapidations claim can be substantial therefore it is essential that you appoint a surveyor to act on your behalf.  We can produce a Schedule of Dilapidations on behalf of either the landlord or the tenant. 


Example of a Dilapidations claim


If you call us we will be more than happy to send you an example Dilapidations claim or more importantly an example Schedule of Condition as this will protect you against a Dilapidations claim.
