When a tenant leaves a property at the end of their lease, both they and the landlord require a detailed, accurate assessment of the condition compared to the obligations in the lease. This process is usually referred to as dilapidations.
Dilapidations occur during or at the end of a lease when a tenant fails to comply with their lease obligations relating to the condition of the property.
Most UK leases oblige the tenant to keep premises in good repair. But a large proportion of tenants are not aware that they must fix up a property into if it is not in good condition when the lease commences.
