Expert Dilapidations Surveys And Repairs In London

Dilapidations refer to the legal obligations relating to the condition of a leased property at the end of the lease. It is a specific area of law relating to breaches of a tenant's lease obligations or covenants.

Whether it’s an office or retail unit, the tenant is legally beholden to correct the terms of their lease, including repairs and decorations.

If you’re a tenant or landlord, it’s important to look at your lease to see what it says about the upkeep and maintenance of your property. It should specify what constitutes dilapidations and the obligations associated with them.


Before a lease ends, it helps to have a survey of your property.
