Brief: Dilapidations on behalf of the tenant

Project Summary

Due to a relocation of premises, our client was faced with a dilapidation claim from their landlord. Walker Wood Limited was instructed to provide advice regarding the extent of the claim and to negotiate where possible. 

Walker Wood carried out detailed consideration of the dilapidation claim against our client and carried out negotiations. In order to keep the claim against our client to a minimum we advised our client to carry out certain works required under the terms of their lease.  Walker Wood carried out the design, contract administration and project management tasks as well as acting as Principal Designer. By taking this approach, we reduced our client's claim by over 65%.
