Solicitors in Chester and Liverpool

Dilapidations claims for breaches of tenant’s covenants can be complex and time-consuming for landlords and tenants. Claims include disrepair, reinstatement and redecoration as well as loss of rent for the time it may take to undertake the dilapidation works.

Dilapidations usually arise at the end of the lease but can also arise as an interim claim during a lease where the landlord is concerned about the condition of the premises.

Our specialist team acts for institutional investors, SMEs and individuals. We also provide strategic support to agents and surveyors during the term of the lease as well as serving Section 146 Notices requiring compliance with tenant covenants where the landlord may need to forfeit the lease.

Our wide network of contacts allow us to introduce clients to a high quality and specialist professional team including dilapidations surveyors, Section 18 valuers and counsel.

Working with clients and their professional advisors, we have a reputation for achieving successful and pragmatic outcomes for clients whether through negotiation, mediation or litigation.
