Dilapidation surveys are carried out at the end of a tenancy agreement to determine responsibility for repair work and to independently verify costs. If you are a landlord or a tenant looking for a dilapidation survey in London, Brennan Associates offers in-depth formal assessments carried out by an experienced team of specialist chartered surveyors.

For residential and commercial property clients alike, dilapidations represents a complex and sometimes controversial area of the law. Dilapidations is sometimes explained as an ‘exit charge’ tenants have to pay to put the property they are vacating back to the condition it was in when the tenancy started. But obligations for repairs and reinstatements are defined by the details of each tenancy agreement, as well as by statutory law. Even when there is agreement over responsibility for repairs, landlords and tenants often find themselves at odds over valuations.

At Brennan Associates, we pride ourselves on taking a professional, objective approach to helping both parties reach agreement on dilapidations. The key to resolving such issues at the end of any tenancy agreement is to carry out a full dilapidations survey. This involves a thorough inspection of the condition of the property, drawing up a schedule with details of all damage,defects and alterations.

The key to resolving such issues at the end of any tenancy agreement is to carry out a full dilapidations survey. This involves a thorough inspection of the condition of the property, drawing up a schedule with details of all damage,defects and alterations.

This schedule of dilapidations then serves several purposes. First, if one was undertaken at the start of the tenancy, it can be compared with the schedule of condition – a similar report detailing the physical condition of the property before a tenant moves in. That way, it is straightforward to ascertain what defects have occurred since the tenant moved in, and also to provide evidence of material alterations.

Next, our surveyors will analyse the likely cause of all dilapidations that have occurred during the tenancy. On the balance of probability, we can advise on whether they were likely caused by the actions of the tenant. This must be then compared carefully with the details of the tenancy agreement to confirm who is responsible for what. Finally, our experts will evaluate the costs of repair, providing an in-depth report outlining the liabilities of the tenant and those of the landlord.
