What else you might like to know about Dilapidations Claim

If your business finds itself in a dispute with a tenant or former tenant in relation to dilapidations, seeking the help of a legal service provider should be your next step. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is a dilapidations claim?

A dilapidations claim can be made where a business has vacated a property they were previously leasing and left it in disrepair. If the property has been left in a state that does not meet the conditions of the leaseholder agreement, then the landlord is within their rights to make a dilapidations claims.

Why make a dilapidations claim?

The main reason for pursuing a dilapidations claim against a business tenant is to claim damages from the leaseholder in order to pay for the cost of returning the property to a satisfactory state. Damages awarded in court are usually calculated on this basis. A claimant may also request that the defendant pays any associated legal fees.

What evidence will I need to present?

If you are claiming against a former tenant, you will be required to demonstrate the extent of the damage caused to your property and prove that the damage contravenes the leaseholder agreement you have in place. A legal expert will help to guide you through the process and advise upon the necessary evidence to make a successful dilapidations claim.

How can I choose the best legal service provider?

You should look to appoint a legal expert with experience in handling property disputes that has received positive client reviews in the past. It is also worth considering factors such as location, reputation and cost of a firm before making your decision.

 

Answer a few short questions now and start comparing legal service providers based on the criteria most important to you.

How much will a claim cost me?

Should a dilapidations claims reach court, it is impossible to predict exactly how long the case may take. As a result, legal service providers typically charge on a fixed fee with capped hours or hourly rate basis. However, it is worth considering that your legal costs may be covered by the other party if your claim is successful.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
