Dilapidations Claim on Industrial Units - West Country

In this case our client, an industrial occupier with multiple premises across the country, wished to vacate one unit and move into another in the same locality.

They were naturally anxious to minimise their dilapidations liability on the property being vacated and to protect themselves against future dilapidations on the new property being occupied. Settlement was reached on the property being vacated at approximately 50% of the amount claimed.

The new premises had been subject to an inadequate refurbishment in preparation for letting but after negotiations by Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors the refurbishment was completed to a higher standard including the provision of a new roof thereby ensuring a trouble free period of occupation by our client.
