Dilapidation claims will usually commence near to the end of a lease by the landlord, who will serve a written Schedule of Dilapidations to the tenant. The landlord can claim for the cost of completing particular works, subject to the terms of the lease, and these may include:
Loss of rent during repair works
Serving a dilapidation schedule
However, a landlord’s claim for damages for dilapidations can be limited in certain circumstances and it is essential for a landlord to seek legal advice before servicing a schedule of dilapidations.
