One of our client's motor dealerships was approaching the end of their lease and they wanted to know their potential dilapidation liability. We made an assessment and advised them of what a reasonable landlord may claim. Not all landlord's claims however are reasonable.......
Soon after advising our client what their potential liability may be, the landlord served a schedule of dilapidations which was 170% greater in value than the figure we had advised. We were appointed to negotiate a settlement and rigorously challenged the landlord's schedule. The end result was an agreed settlement which was £500 below our initial assessment.
