Dilapidations & Disrepair in Commercial Leases - Unpicking the Tricky Issues
The word ‘disrepair’ can cause even the most experienced property practitioner’s heart to sink. Why is disrepair not always self-evident? Can landlords or tenants ever be expected to comply with repairing obligations during the lease? How much should a tenant pay for disrepair at the end of the lease? Can a landlord recover, in full, the costs of making the property lettable again?
The length of the lease, the age and energy efficiency of the building and the needs of today's tenants can all play a part in the advice given to landlords and to tenants. This live broadcast session unpicks some of the trickier issues and suggests practical ways to utilise repairing covenants effectively.
