Schedules of Dilapidations

We will support you

In most commercial leases, it is the tenant’s responsibility at the end of a Lease to hand back the property in the condition that accords with the requirements of the Lease. The Lease allows the Landlord to issue a schedule of wants of repair and reinstatement that the tenant is obliged to undertake under the terms of the Lease.
