Negotiating Dilapidations

Dilapidation claims are a contractual claim subject to a statutory cap. This session will focus on the often complex and grey areas, looking at many of the landlord and tenant rights and obligations.  

The session will cover:

  • The relevant clauses and where to find them
  • What do the words of repairing clauses actually mean?
  • The statutory cap
  • The default common law position
  • How inherent defects interact with dilapidation claims
  • The Dilapidations Protocol
  • Tactics: how do you play it if you are a landlord?  How do you play it if you are a tenant?

What others say

I have listened to the Henry Stewart lunchtime Webinars and have found them very informative: in fact there was so much information, I have had to revisit to comprehend it all! A great way to increase your CPD over a lunch break.

I attended the webinar on complex lease terms and expected this to be a light filler to boost my CPD, but I found myself scribbling three pages of useful notes! There was some really valuable new information about current trends and upcoming changes. In particular the post webinar questions gave added insight.
