Vacating a Property
Our mission is to guide our clients through the process of vacating a property while minimising the associated costs.
Most leases require the tenant to return the property at the end of the lease in a particular state of repair and decoration including reinstating any alterations. All too often this leads to disputes between landlords and tenants over the extent of these obligations and their associated costs.
Understanding the contractual and legislative procedures that form the framework for handling dilapidations claims is critical. This will be different in each case depending on the drafting of the lease and we pride ourselves on being able to deliver bespoke advice that enables the best possible outcome.
Good planning is essential to achieving the best result and minimising the impact upon a business. As well as advising on dilapidations claims in progress we also provide strategic advice in advance of a lease expiry to enable an exit strategy to be developed, budgets drawn up and accruals made.
