Scott Murphy has extensive experience in preparing dilapidations claims on behalf of Landlords as well as defending claims when acting on behalf of Tenants. The lease forms the contractual relationship between Landlord and Tenant and we focus on ensuring that our clients fully utilise the relevant covenants within the lease to their best advantage.

We work hard to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients. We achieve this through a systematic approach to each instruction, which starts with listening to our clients to ensure we have a clear understanding of their objectives.

The area of Dilapidations is a core skillset in our practice and accordingly we provide a comprehensive dilapidations service which includes:

  • Preparation and negotiation of dilapidation schedules for owners/landlords
  • Defence and negotiation of dilapidation claims for tenants
  • Preparation of Schedules of condition for new leases
  • Preparation of reports on Tenant’s anticipated dilapidations liability
  • Checking, approving and monitoring tenant alteration work
  • Strategic dilapidations advice on the operation of break clauses and repairing covenants
  • Acting as Expert witness and court appointed expert in arbitration and litigation
  • Procurement of building works in fulfilment of repairing covenants
