The field of dilapidations is a complex one that brings together best practice guidelines, case law, building pathology and commercial property matters.

At Arc we have a sound knowledge of all these disciplines and take a reasoned, pro-active and commercial approach to the provision of dilapidations consultancy.

The range of services that we provide includes:

  • Dilapidations strategy reports.
  • Repairs notices requiring the identification of a tenants breach of covenants during the lease term.
  • Terminal schedules of dilapidations incorporating a statement of claim, record of photographs and any specialised reports in the lead up to lease expiry.
  • Negotiation, to enforce a claim when necessary, in partnership with the landlord’s lawyers.
  • Expert witness, providing specialist advice in the eventuality of a dispute.
