This is a typical dilapidations case in a small Kent town.
Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors represented the landlord, a small investment fund, with a commercial lease to a major High Street food retailer. Although a modern brick building it was being vacated in a neglected and unrepaired condition internally and externally.
Metcalfe Briggs Surveyors assessed the state of repair of the building and the extent of the tenant’s alterations to derive a cost for reinstatement. We assisted the landlord in pursuing settlement of dilapidations of £57,000.
