When you build it you can also dismantle it. Restoring the property back to its original condition is often required at the end of a tenancy. It can be a complex process, and you must ensure you fully understand the terms of your lease agreement to know how liable you are for dilapidation costs.
Its key for all tenants of commercial property to be mindful of the implications and responsibility for maintenance and repair. Keeping the property in good condition throughout your tenancy will help minimise lease end expenditure.
Dilapidations can be complex, and often companies do not realise the implications until after they have left a property, which can lead to unwanted costly consequences. It is the tenant’s responsibility to be aware of terms set out in the tenancy, not the landlords. Lack of understanding of the process means it can often set-aside and pushed back to the end of the company agenda.
