It is very common for a substantial schedule of dilapidations to be served upon a tenant at the end of a commercial lease. The landlord will do this to ensure that the tenant complies with the covenants in the lease so that the landlord receives the property back in a proper state of repair and in accordance with the provisions as set out in the lease. The tenant, faced with a schedule of dilapidations, will often wish to challenge it on the grounds that it is more extensive than the tenant’s legal obligations. Such issues can normally be sorted out between the parties but if not, then we will guide the client through the processes to resolve the issues, whether that be through litigation, mediation or arbitration.
