Dilapidation Surveys in London

Identify breaches of covenants and ensure that properties are handed back to landlords in the condition set out in the lease.

A Dilapidation Survey is a detailed survey that records the condition of a building, its components, and systems, right down to minor wear and tear. The purpose of Dilapidation Surveys is to establish a baseline condition prior to new tenants moving in, or recording the condition of the building as tenants move out. This is to determine any potential breaches of covenants, and ensure that the building is handed back to the landlord in the agreed condition.
