What are Dilapidation Works?

The term “dilapidation works” refers to the repairs or reinstatement of modifications made to a property by the tenant that have resulted in structural deterioration. It’s a method of returning a property to its pre-lease condition, according to the Lease Agreement between a Landlord and their Tenant. The process of executing dilapidation works may be started either by the outgoing tenant or the landlord.

Dilapidation Works

Dilapidation services are needed where commercial buildings or office spaces have fallen into disrepair.  In cases where buildings have been left abandoned, the dilapidation service is best carried out by a specialist contractor. This method will ultimately benefit building owners and make the site more attractive to potential buyers. A dilapidation survey on an office building can also highlight areas which need repair work on roofs, ceilings or doors.

Dilapidation Surveyors

Dilapidation surveys are important quality control procedures for property maintenance contractors. They’re required by most insurance companies before assessing the full extent of exterior damage to a building, or to establish whether internal damage has resulted from prior roof leaks or flooding.

    Dilapidation Services for Tenants and Landlords

    When it comes to dilapidation services, tenants and landlords have different needs. Tenants often need help inspecting the property for damage and ensuring that their security deposit is returned in full. Landlords, on the other hand, may need help preparing a property for sale or lease.

    At PPVS, we understand the unique needs of tenants and landlords. We offer a range of services that are tailored to each group’s specific needs. For tenants, we offer a detailed inspection report that highlights any damage to the property. We also work with landlords to ensure that they are aware of any potential issues with the property before putting it on the market.
