Landlord Dilapidations Report & Claim Help - Gravesend

This High Street Victorian property in Kent had been extended in modern times to provide additional open plan office accommodation and fitted out specifically for the use of the tenant, the DHSS as a Job Centre Plus and associated offices.

Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors acted for the landlord in assessing the disrepair, the extensive tenant’s alterations and other obligations and prepared a detailed Schedule of Dilapidations which was costed at a sum in excess of £250,000.

A specification of works for all disrepair, reinstatement of tenant’s alterations and decorations was written and competitive tenders from contractors obtained.  Valuation advice was sought under Section 18 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1925 and a Part 36 offer was made under CPR Procedures.
